Nata Sankirtana is inseparable part of Manipuri society. It performs in every sphere of life from Shasti puja (Birth rituals) to death ceremonies.

It is a kind of great sacrifice (Mahajanya in Hinduism) and way to achieved total devotion. The main principle of Bhakti movement of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was Kirtana. Kirtana is one of way to connect with eternal Lord i.e. Krishna. Manipuri Nata Sankirtana is one of its kinds.
