The Krishna Das Pilgrim Heart Hour features Krishna Das’ no-nonsense take on everyday struggles for finding balance on the spiritual path. Through the honesty, humility and humor of his own personal experiences, he points to the possibility of navigating life’s trials with a true inner yearning for truth. His own practice of kirtan or chant is the well stone of his ability to share from his spiritual heart. As KD says, “Love is a disease - we catch it from those who have it.”
Ep. 97 – Longing, Letting Go & The Lineage of Hanuman
Krishna Das explores longing, letting go, being here now, and the uniqueness of the Hanuman lineage for liberating us while satisfying our beneficial desires and fulfilling our karmas.
In this fun and directed question and answer session, Krishna Das illuminates longing as the base for devotional practice, and describes how releasing our thoughts and fears to surrender into the present moment during meditation is a microcosm of the ultimate goal of the spiritual journey. Sharing from the spacious present, Krishna Das expresses how the Hanuman lineage is not a renunciate path, offering juicy descriptions of Hanuman from India, and sharing stories of miracles and unconditional love of his Guru, Maharajji.
Ep. 96 – Thought Tornadoes
With deep vulnerability and humor, Krishna Das answers questions on the benefits of daily spiritual practice, like mantra chanting, for releasing us from the whirling thought-tornadoes of our minds.
Continuing last episode's Q&A session from a 2018 workshop in Miami, FL, Krishna Das answers audience questions digging into what a 'typical Monday' looks for him, the benefits of a daily spiritual practice, creating a spacious gap for buffering intense reactions through using techniques like mantra repetition, and how we can better imbibe surrender and will within our beings. Exploring these questions through vulnerably sharing his deep personal experiences with Maharajji and other respected Babas in India, Krishna Das helps us move past our mind's whirling thought-tornados, and into the present being of loving awareness.
Ep. 95 – Tending Our Inner-Garden
Krishna Das explores tending our inner-garden; planting seeds of spiritual practice now to harvest blossoms of real change in the future.
In this 2018 workshop from Miami, FL, Krishna Das invites us to get our hands dirty in the garden of our inner-being. Theming the talk around Sri Ramakrishna's compelling and vibrant allegory of spiritual practices being seeds of compassion and love planted for the future, Krishna Das tills through the process of uprooting our separate sense of me-ness, laying out the proverbial Farmer's Almanac for a blossoming harvest of real change from earnest, intentional, and consistent spiritual practice.

krishna das shares enormous love from his wide open heart
He never tells you what you want to hear - always what you need.
I love me some KD
Krishna Das changed my life. He pointed in a direction through chanting and off I went searching and a found a temple (Kannon Nichiren Buddhism temple, Las Vegas , NV) here in town. This show has the potential to change your life. Krishna Das doesn’t shy away from being vulnerable and honest and I appreciate it. My only complaint is that I wish the Be Here Now Network would post more episodes.
Thank you for all that you do Krishna Das! RAMRAM/Namu Myoho Renge Kyo
