Layering traditional Hindu kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called "yoga's rock star." With a remarkably soulful voice, Krishna Das has taken the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming the best-selling chant artist of all time.
From 'Pilgrim of the Heart' audio series by Krishna Das:
The words of these chants are called the divine names and they come from a place that's deeper than our hearts and our thoughts, deeper than the mind. And so as we sing them they turn us towards ourselves, into ourselves. They bring us in, and as we offer ourselves into the experience, the experience changes us. These chants have no meaning other than the experience that we have by doing them. They come from the Hindu tradition, but it's not about being a Hindu, or believing anything in advance. It's just about doing it, and experiencing. Nothing to join, you just sit down and sing.
These two evenings of kirtan are being held in conjunction with Krishna Das's Heart of Devotion Retreat at the Garrison Institute, January 27-29.
