I love listening to KD as I’m tucking into bed. Though his talks and singing lull me I never get tired of his sharp wit. He is so funny! I am so grateful for the work he shares, the stories that inspire, and the devotion to healing, tending the heart, planting seeds, all of it. I’m so grateful. For him. For the Be Here Now network, for Ram Dass, Jack, Sharon, Duncan.. for all the people I’ve never met but gave me the tools to open my heart and see my true self. I love you all so much, thank you.

Rank #19: Ep. 03 - Chanting and Awareness

Podcast cover
Read more
Krishna Das discusses the relationship between chanting and awareness during the Heart of Devotion workshop at Princeton University. Our natural state is one of awareness, but our thoughts continuously pull us away from this presence. Chanting helps to create a sense of spaciousness by offering the mind something to focus on. Each repetition is like a seed of awareness that grows throughout the process. The practice slowly dissolves the more transient aspects of our personhood, and what’s left is the true presence in which the spirit resides.

Rank #20: Ep. 15 - Practice: Waking from the Movie of Me

Podcast cover
Read more
A sharp reflection on the power and necessity of practice in gaining ground on the self-centered mind. We are fortunate in this world to have a choice, to have the ability to vote on the actions we will take throughout our lives. Which of these actions will bring joy, peace and presence into our being, and how can we align ourselves with an attitude that maintains this understanding? The answer, as always, comes in the form of practice. When we can remember that we have the option to choose how we will spend our time, we then need only to remind ourselves, and to trust our own hearts in moving forward.
