Beautiful Seminars in Hindi

Producer: various 

Originally Released: 2004

They say that in the Kali Yuga - that period in the vast Vedic cycle of ages at which the light of spirit is dimmest in the world: a sort of dark night of the soul on a cosmic scale - the most effective practice for most people is the repetition of the Divine Names. For thousands, Krishna Das' recordings, kirtans, and workshops have been a doorway into that practice and a compelling taste of the sweetness of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion.

This CD/DVD set is both an overview of the journey so far and an excellent introduction to his work for those who are newly discovering it. The CD is a compilation of choice selections from his first five albums, as well as a new studio recording, "Bhajelo-ji Hanuman," and a Dub Farm remix of "Baba Hanuman," from Breath of the Heart. The DVD features Mahavir Michael Drumm's feature-length documentary, One Life at a Time, a chronicle of Krishna Das' life and journey that includes extensive live kirtan footage and in-depth interviews with KD, as well as insightful commentary from several friends and colleagues, including Ram Dass, Sharon Salzberg, John Friend and Ty Burhoe. The DVD also contains full-length videos of four of the live chants that are excerpted in the documentary, with audio playable in Dolby 5.1 or in stereo.

Krishna Das from album: Pilgrim Heart (http://www.krishnadasmusic.com/pilgrim_heart.htm)


Producer: Krishna Das, Assistant Producer: John McDowell, Originally Released: 1998

African beats mix and mingle with finger cymbals, sarangi and khol; electronic programming; and, of course, Krishna Das' depth-charged Sanskrit namakirtan to create the signature pop-worldbeat sound of this ever-popular recording. Tracks include "Mountain Hare Krishna," with its lovely, searching melody and guest vocals by Sting; the haunting lyricism of the English-language "Mother Song;" and "Devi Puja," the cycle of prayers to the Goddess that KD often sings in his current kirtan and workshops. The album ends on a high note, with a short narrative of the Ramayana playfully set to ebullient township jive in "The Ring Song."
