Krishna Das

Kirtan is a call-and-response chanting of Sanskrit mantras that started in India as a path to enlightenment. Practitioners believe the chanting awakens the love of God which is present in everyone's heart. This form of meditation is gaining popularity here in the U.S. Religion & Ethics Newsweekly had a report this weekend on Krishna Das, an internationally known spiritual teacher, led a kirtan workshop in New York.

We have listened to Krishna Das and must report that the chanting is something we like. You can learn more, and hear more, here.
