Thus, as it entertains, it enlightens.Harikatha (lit. stories of the Lord) is the exposition of a religious theme, usually the life of a saint or a story from one of India's scriptural texts. Its purpose is to spread devotion to to the Divine. Harikatha is a composite art containing story-telling, poetry, music, drama, dance, and philosophy.
