Krishna Dass is a Beautiful and Brutal Open Book

There's no BS to be found here, that's for sure! Just some starkly honest and wise recollections and reflections from a lifetime(s)'s experience. Always candid, always hilarious, always looking to cut through the unnecessary noise and nonsense of the often saccharin 'sunshine and lollipops' arena of spirituality (whatever that word even means!). Thanks, man.

Just wonderful ☺️

I can't recommend this podcast highly enough. I'm a recently deconstructed Anglican/evangelical Christian, currently reconstructing a big, beautiful open faith that has absolutely no exclusive truth claims. Listening to the deep, humble wisdom of Krishna Das is helping so much. Also, I've discovered chanting as a practice here and I have never been so moved or sensed The Divine so clearly than when I first heard KD chanting. Whatever your faith, whoever your Guru (mine's still Jesus for the record 😉) listen to this podcast because it's very special indeed.
