Krishna Das will be discussing his latest tour for his first studio recording in ten years, “Heart as Wide as the World” through Australia and New Zealand, while announcing his upcoming US tour dates. He’ll also address how Kirtan helps us deal with mental chatter, the challenge of Being Here Now (following on the footsteps of his first teacher and life-long friend Ram Dass) and our karma in 2012. Dr. Alison J. Kay will also be fishing KD for how he got from being a Long Island Jewish boy who loved rock n roll, to be part of the first Eastern wave in the 1970’s, seeing the same guru as Ram Dass and the Beatles went to.
Adopting the name Krishna Das, KD began to chant as part of following the path of Bhakti yoga – the yoga of devotion. "We began to learn how to override the things that close us down," KD says. "Chanting was a way of entering into that flow. The theory, of course, is that you develop the strength to continue to override the ability of that stuff to grab you and bring you down to a more conditioned state."
KD is clear that he is first and foremost a devotee, with the sharing of his practice a profound act of his faith. Nevertheless, KD has become an iconic music presence, drawing in other artists, including Sting, Madonna, Mike D, jazz bassist Stanley Jordan, and Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen, some of whom are yoga devotees, while others are simply moved by the power of the music.
"His voice is like gravity," Nichtern says. "You just fall into his voice. Many people, that don't really know what the context is, pick up on that. People listen to KD records when they're having babies, or while they're dying. It strikes a deep chord. It's a fundamental."
