Discover Your True Nature with Sacred Chant – Krishna Das

We spend so much of our lives chasing happiness—all while trying to figure out who we really are. Today, Jim’s guest talks about his incredible spiritual journey, the effects of Western thinking, and how a chanting practice helped him uncover his truest, purest self.

On today’s Sound Health episode, Jim welcomes a very special guest, Krishna Das—an American musician known for his Hindu devotional music, kirtan. Considered to be “yoga’s rock star,” he has become a worldwide icon and the best-selling western chant artist of all time.

In this candid interview, Krishna Das, or KD, talks about leaving his rock n’ roll dreams for the spiritual journey that offered a new way of seeing life and a deeper understanding of what it means to be truly human.

Jim asks about KD’s chanting practices and how others can use sound, meditation, and mantra chanting as tools to rediscover who they really are.

Krishna has released 17 albums—including one Grammy-nominated album in 2013—, has published six books, offers online tutorials, and facilitates retreats and workshops all over the world. You can also watch an award-winning film about his life, called One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das.
