Satigatha Performs at Mount Auburn Cemetery from Mount Auburn Cemetery on Vimeo.

Satigatha, “mindful song” or “chant,” is a unique blend of modern rock, folk, and Buddhist-oriented “kirtan” dedicated to opening the heart of devotion and practice, and inspiring wisdom through contemplative music and interactive chanting. Chris Berlin, Darren Becker, Andrew Stauffer and Alanna Coady consist of both present and former Master of Divinity graduates from Harvard Divinity School.  Also featuring the spoken word of Michael Miceli.
