About the Author

In the winter of 1968, Krishna Das met spiritual seeker Ram Dass and was enthralled by the stories of his recent trip to India, where he met the legendary guru Neem Karoli Baba. Soon thereafter, he left behind his dreams of being a rock 'n' roll star and was on his way to India to meet this remarkable Being. In the three years he spent there with Neem Karoli Baba, Krishna Das's heart was drawn to the practice of Bhakti Yoga-the yoga of devotion-and especially to the practice of kirtan (chanting the Divine Names).Krishna Das returned to the United States and, as he continued chanting, developed his signature style, fusing traditional kirtan structure with Western harmonic and rhythmic sensibilities. He travels the world, leading call-and-response kirtans and sharing this deep, experiential practice with thousands of people.


"Krishna Das offers a gift of love-this candid, lively, and helpful guide to the path that opens the heart. Chants of a Lifetime is an instant spiritual classic."
- Daniel Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence

"In Chants of a Lifetime, Krishna Das opens a door to a world of boundless love. This is a book about a real and transformational path-including all of life's challenges, inspiration, and uncertainty. It serves as an invitation to unwavering happiness."
- Sharon Salzberg, the author of Lovingkindness:The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

"Knowing the sweet power and depth of Krishna Das's singing, I was delighted to see, in this honest testament, how he got there. This book shows how Kirtan (singing the names of God) enters into our spiritual heart and then lights it up."
- Ram Dass, the author of Be Here Now

"Like a night of ecstatic chanting, this book throws open the doors of the heart. Krishna Das writes like he sings: with earthy, quirky, luminous clarity. Chants of a Lifetime is a reminder that simply uttering any of the many names of the Beloved has the power to free us from ourselves, and make of our hearts an offering to the One. May we never again forget. May we never stop singing."
- Mirabai Starr, the author of new translations of John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila
