Originally Released: 2001
The Story of One Seeker’s Unforgettable Journey on the Bhakti Path of Love
Bhakti Yoga is the path of loving devotion-the total surrender of all our acts, thoughts, and emotions to the heart of the divine. Through his albums and performances, world-music legend, Krishna Das has used Indian devotional chant to bring this path to thousands of listeners. On Pilgrim of the Heart, Krishna Das tells the story of his life, offering it as both a memoir and a metaphor for all of us seeking to follow this ecstatic way of the heart.
Krishna Das begins by taking us back to the winter of 1968, on a road trip through a harrowing New York blizzard in search of Ram Dass. From there, we follow him into the jungles and ashrams of India … meet his unforgettable teacher Neem Karoli Baba … open our eyes to Hanuman, the sacred embodiment of compassion and grace … and gain the opportunity to join Krishna Das and friends in a series of uplifting chants from the bhakti tradition. Pilgrim of the Heart is an intimate meeting with one of the world’s great living masters of devotional singing-and an invitation into the infinite yoga of faith, compassion, and surrender.
