Product Description

About the Author

Krishna Das met spiritual seeker Ram Dass in the winter of 1968 and was enthralled by the stories of his recent trip to India, where he met the legendary guru Neem Karoli Baba. Soon thereafter, he was on his way to India to meet this remarkable man. 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 Names of God).

Krishna Das returned to the United States and began developing his signature chanting style, fusing traditional kirtan structure with Western harmonic and rhythmic sensibilities. He continues to travel the world leading call-and-response kirtans and sharing this deep, experiential practice with thousands of people.

This book has everything a serious spiritual aspirant needs.Krishna Das has written a wonderful review of his time in India with his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba. For those who know Krishna Das, and who are familiar with his fabulous chanting, this book is a must. He not only gives us a deeper insight into how and why he became a chant master but also, along the way, he gives us solid advice on how to keep our feet firmly on the ground whilst doing our own spiritual practice.This is a book I shall cherish and read again and again. Thank you K.D.

I have had this book bought for me by a good friend and I have now read it 3 times and the CD that is given with it is just fatastic!!! I find KD's chanting really opens up the heart and when listening to it on my Ipod makes me want to chant out load. I bought one for another good friend of mine and she feels the same as I do about this wonderful man,I only wish more people were given the chance to hear him,he really is amazing.

I had never heard of Krisha Das before being given a copy of this book, and it has been an absolute pleasure and delight to read his story. The struggles he has gone through on his spiritual journey are very humbling and honest, moving and joyful, it was such a profound journey to read. I really feel that this book has the potential to change or inspire people's lives. It certainly has for me. I was also so happy that he had quoted Rumi and St John of the Cross throughout, as these are more of my favourite writers. Just brilliant all round!

KD's recordings have long made Indian devotional chants more accessible for the westerner. With this frank description of his own spiritual journey he tells us of his time with his guru Neem Karoli Baba and his return to the west. Having read fairly widely in and around this area I found KD got to the heart of things and conveyed them wonderfully. He uses some sanskrit terms without getting too technical in such a way as to go more than surface deep while remaining accessible in his exposition of the path of bhakti yoga (i.e. chanting as a spiritual path). The stories of his wonderful guru are amazing and inspirational. He is Frank and open about his own failings and how his spiritual path has helped overcome these. If you are a fan of 'Autobiography of a Yogi', you won't go wrong with this.

Chants of a Lifetime is an intensely personal account of Krishna Das's own spiritual journey. Although I personally have no sympathy for people who create merry hell for themselves and people around them because of their drug abuse and subsequent depression, paranoia etc. Krishna Das's story has simple honesty about it. He doesn't try to hide or manipulate the reader to 'like' him. But you end up loving him anyway! How can you not, after the lengths he has gone to, in his soul searching, in following his guru, in loving wholeheartedly, and selflessly, which eventually lead him to chanting which turns out to be his lifeline.
Stories of Neem Karoli Baba are beautifully told.

I enjoyed reading the book and listening to the chants CD.

I loved this book. For many years I've been a fan of KD listening to his music daily during yoga and meditative practice. It was great getting to know a bit more about him and his Guru.

the book is very honest, it's as if he's speaking directly to you. in fact, the only negative point I had was that he seems to lose 'the thread' on a few occasions - where he starts on a topic, divulges, but never returns to the original topic - but hey! I'm guilty of that in real life - so makes the book a bit more human.

I finished the book a few days before seeing the screening of his film. To be honest, I preferred the book :)
