Jivamukti NYC Classic: Krishna Das - Tell Tale Heart
Join Kirtan Master Krishna Das as he gives a memorable talk on the practice and power of chanting.
Through fascinating candid personal reflections he reveals the profound experiences that led Krishna Das on the path of spiritual evolution including meeting his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba, for the first time in India.
The ancient tradition of Kirtan—chanting the name of God—is an integral part of devotion to yoga (known in India as Bhakti). In this recorded lecture, Krishna Das talks about how Kirtan can lead us to a deeper place in our hearts. He explains it this way, "It is able to blow away the dust on the mirrors of our hearts, helping us feel happy and close to God."
Hailed by the New York Times as the "Chant Master of American Yoga," Krishna Das has built a worldwide following with his legendary night Kirtans at Jivamukti Yoga Center. His chanting recordings are used by Hatha yoga teachers around the globe both in their practices and classes. Ram Das describes him as "an example of someone whose heart songs open the channels to God."
Recorded live on September 21, 2001, at the Jivamukti Yoga Center on Lafeyette Street in NYC. Running Time: 1 hour, 32 minutes. mp3 Audio Download Only.
