This article delves into the therapeutic benefits of clapping hands during Kirtan, a form of devotional service. Drawing on insights from neuroscience, psychology, traditional medicine, and spiritual discourse, we explore the intricate sensorimotor connection underlying haptic perception. Additionally, we elucidate the physiological and psychological effects of clapping, while examining its role in fostering spiritual connection and overall well-being. Through a synthesis of empirical research, ancient wisdom, and cultural practices, we shed light on the profound implications of this age-old tradition in promoting holistic health and spiritual growth.
