All paths lead to the same goal, the same place. That’s what I believe. So I feel completely at ease repeating any of the names of God. I am an all-inclusive repeater. It doesn’t matter to me; I like Hanuman, but I feel very close to Jesus also. For me, it’s not a problem because I believe they are all the names of that One.” – Krishna Das

    This time on Pilgrim Heart, Krishna Das divulges:The different versions of The Bhagavad GitaGiving our full concentration to the mantraHow to be in the “I am” instead of the “me”Regular practice over time as the path to truthUnderstanding through practice rather than intellectual conceptsRelationships and seeing where our work needs to be doneLove as a true and constant natureCalming our minds down with chanting and meditationThe way we are in relationship with everything all the time“There is nothing wrong with love. The spiritual path is nothing but love. Relationships can really show you where your work has to be done and what work you have to do. Because you will see that they’ll be times when that beautiful romantic relationship looks like and feels like shit and torture. I guarantee it. Sooner or later. It may not last, but you’re going to go through everything in the relationship if you are really in relationship and you’re being honest with yourself and the other person. Relationships are wonderful opportunities to do a lot of work on ourselves.” – Krishna Das

    “Look at yourself, and try to figure out why you can’t do what you want to do. What’s holding you back? You have to solve that problem, you have to deal with those issues. Maybe it’s self-loathing, maybe it’s self doubt, maybe it’s all kinds of things, programs that are running that we’re not aware of. That’s why the repetition of the name is such a good practice.“ – Krishna Das
