With Worldwide Icon & Bestselling Western Chant Master
Krishna Das

A 5-Module On-Demand Video Training

 
 

Experience Krishna Das’ guided devotional chanting, intimate reflections, and insights into the saints and great beings — so you can bring them into your daily life… to ground and transform as you navigate this complex historical moment.

 

Recent years brought us a series of challenges that took us by surprise, disrupting our routines and daily lives.

In response, devotees all over the world are discovering (or re-discovering) a powerful philosophy for how to be with the world, yet not be destroyed by it… because they’re ready to deal with anything life brings.

You, too, can change the way you move through your day and walk through the world. You can feel grounded and strong, even when it feels like things are dissolving around you.

Devotional chanting is an exquisite spiritual path that leads to greater peace.

It equips you to meet everything that life brings with greater ease, resilience, compassion, and even love. It brings into focus a powerful truth — that everything you want is completely available and possible.

World-renowned devotional chant master Krishna Das even says his chanting practice saves his life on a daily basis  — and he’ll share how it can do the same for you.

Join us for a 5-module experiential course with Krishna Das (or, as his friends call him, KD) and learn to bring a consistent devotional chanting practice into your daily life — so you can free yourself from the hold of negative thoughts about the world around you… and about yourself.

As KD guides you to chant, you’ll learn to focus (and then refocus, when you need to) your attention on the music and syllables — as the suffering that comes from self-loathing begins to diminish.

As KD says, when it comes to devotional chanting, there are no secrets. You simply sing, and when you notice you haven't been paying attention, you come back and begin paying attention once again. Over time, you’ll train yourself to let go of the stories you tell yourself — the ones that are full of thoughts that limit and hurt you, causing you to suffer.

You’ll become familiar with how it feels to simply be here, in a more open, accepting space. You’ll learn to release negative energy so you can transform.

KD will also share in-depth stories about experiences with his guru, Maharaj-ji — someone who had, as KD says, become the whole Universe. KD will explain how the gift of Maharaj-ji’s presence, his teachings, and his mere being has helped KD grow spiritually mature over the last 50 years, even after Maharaj-ji left his body. And such energy can help you grow more spiritually mature too.

Join this dynamic and influential spiritual teacher and renowned global performing artist for five module and experience how devotional chanting can profoundly ground you, move you into a blissful state, and empower you to find your way through this complex moment in history.

 
 
 

In this transformative course, you’ll explore:

  • Guided chants that will deepen as you move through the course — so you can take these teachings and practices with you into your daily life
  • The transformative gift of Maharaj-ji in KD’s life over the last 50 years, even after Maharaj-ji left his body
  • How to find the guru that’s already living within you
  • The great saints and the great beings — and how and why their presence in the world has such a powerful impact on us today
  • How to begin from where you are, in the middle of the Path
  • How your personality, identity in the world, and inner emotional life are a result of your previous karma — and who you’ll ultimately become is a result of the karma you create right now
  • Chanting the Names of God, a chanting practice to open your heart and quiet your mind
  • How the unity of mindfulness, devotion, and compassion can lead you to a oneness of love that transforms your daily life
  • Ways to cultivate your own daily devotional chanting practice to give you a higher perspective on your life and the world

What You’ll Discover in These 5 Modules

In this 5-module transformational intensive, Krishna Das will guide you to bring devotional chanting into your daily life and learn to live each day in the presence of real love.

Guided Chants with Krishna Das

During each class you’ll recite the Hanuman Stavan, the invocatory prayer KD always shares to start off his kirtan (chanting). It’s a stotra (poetic prayer) in praise of the powers, deeds, and devotion of the divine being Lord Hanuman.

In each module, you’ll also participate in several chanting practices and techniques that will carry on and deepen as you move through the course — so you can take these teachings and practices with you into your daily life.

 

This course will feature step-by-step teachings and experiential practices with Krishna Das. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, as you experience weekly guided devotional chants, intimate reflections, and humanizing insights into the saints and great beings — so you can bring them into your daily life.

Module 1: Doorway Into an Open Heart

 

In this opening module, KD will talk about the great saints and the great beings — and how and why their presence in the world has such a powerful impact on us.

If there weren’t saints and great beings, we wouldn’t be here. According to KD, they’re always with you, running the show. Yet you can’t go looking for them. They must find you.

KD will guide you to contemplate the question, What does it mean to be a human being and what is possible for a human being to attain?

You’ll be introduced to spiritual practices and techniques that will carry on and deepen as you move through the five modules. When the course comes to a close, you’ll have teachings and practices to take with you and use in your daily life.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The meaning of the term “saint” as KD uses it in this course, and how it’s used differently depending on the context and time
  • The invocatory prayer KD always shares to start off his kirtan, the Hanuman Stavan — a collection of stotras in praise of the powers, deeds and devotion of Lord Hanuman
  • Stories from KD about his gurus Neem Karoli Baba (NKB, or Maharaj-ji) and Sri Siddhi Ma, Shirdi Sai Baba, Ramana Maharshi, the Buddha, and others
  • Transformative wisdom from KD’s gurus, the great saints, and the great beings that you can bring into your daily life starting now
  • A guided call-and-response chant, Sri Ram Jai Ram, honoring Rama, who represents loyalty, responsibility, and the social and spiritual duties of the individual
 

Module 2: Living With the Guru

 

In this module, Krishna Das will share in-depth wisdom about his guru, NKB, Maharaj-ji.

He’ll explain how they met, his experiences living with Maharaj-ji in India, what he learned from Maharaj-ji, and what he learned from the older Indian devotees who surrounded Maharaj-ji.

KD will reflect on the gift of his guru’s presence in his life over the last 50 years, even after Maharaj-ji left the body.

He’ll also talk about how to find the guru that’s living within you (and everyone).

KD will explain that when you have a guru, you’ll understand that no matter what life brings, you have the choice to not live as a victim.

In every moment that arises, you can simply be present… and when you recognize the guru within you, you can develop the inner strength to navigate the now.

In this session, you’ll explore:

  • The hopeful, calming, transformational force that KD experienced after his guru left the body
  • Vinaya Chalisa, a devotional prayer to the guru written by an Indian devotee and chanted regularly in Maharaj-ji’s temples
  • A return to the guided chant Hanuman Stavan
  • The 40 verses in praise of Neem Karoli Baba
 

Module 3: Beginning in the Middle — Freeing Ourselves From Our Stories

 

What does it mean to begin in the middle?

In this module, KD will explain how to begin from where you are, in the middle of the Path, your Path.

He’ll share how you are who you are as a result of your previous karma — it shapes your personality, your identity in the world, and your emotional life.

Who you’ll ultimately become is a result of the karma you manifest right now.

All that’s required is simplicity, sincerity, honesty, and the strength and courage to look at your “stuff” (self-loathing, doubt, and more) and release it, over and over and over again.

In the process, you'll become more familiar and more at ease with yourself.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The importance of what KD calls cleaning the mirror of the heart — recognizing your current state and the challenges or blocks that keep you from living your best life
  • How the practice of grounding relates to devotional practices
  • Two simple Buddhist meditation practices that have great power to free you from negative emotions — and bring you back from the dreamland where most people live
  • A return to the guided chant Hanuman Stavan
  • A guided meditation practice once taught by Dipa Ma — an extraordinary Buddhist saint who lived in modern days and was a teacher of the first group of Western Buddhist teachers
  • A guided loving-kindness practice, also known as Metta
 

Module 4: Moving Within — The Heart of the Matter

 

In this module, Krishna Das will guide you to explore moving within.

You’ll start by contemplating what the concept of within actually means.

KD will share the story of the Buddha recognizing his own innate joy, which led to his enlightenment. The Buddha later expressed this by calling his path the Middle Way.

KD will teach the practice of Chanting the Names of God — which, as he’ll explain, are also the names of the Presence within you and within all of us.

These names are the sound of the surf of the Ocean of Love. They hold the power to help you find your way back to that ocean. As KD says, we don’t have to create or manufacture any emotions or feelings. All we have to do is remember.

You’ll consider how everyone has their own path to this ocean, but we all wind up in the same place.

KD calls Chanting the Names “the practice for this age,” a spiritual practice that will open your heart and quiet your mind.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • How to remind yourself of the richness of your natural state as you engage in spiritual practices
  • Why freeing yourself from constant obsessive thinking about yourself is so essential
  • Lessons we can all learn from Hanuman, a fully liberated being who lives only to serve the Love within, which he calls “Ram”
  • The Chanting the Names of God practice
  • A return to the guided chant Hanuman Stavan
  • Hanuman Chalisa, a practice to clean the mirror of the mind, purify the heart — and free you from your subjective version of the world
 

Module 5: Love Everyone, Serve Everyone, Remember God

 

The path that I’m on is not the renunciate path. My path is to live fully in the world, the best way possible. Maharaj-ji said, “Love everyone. Serve everyone. Remember God.” He never told us to go live in the jungle.
— Krishna Das

In this closing module, Krishna Das will discuss the unity of mindfulness, devotion, and compassion.

He’ll share the importance of these three qualities and how they can lead you to a oneness of love that transforms your daily life.

KD will guide you to revisit and summarize all the practices you’ve learned over the last four module. You’ll explore how to bring these spiritual practices into your daily life — so you’ll feel empowered to continue growing.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • What to expect as you incorporate these spiritual practices into your everyday life
  • Why your expectations can become an obstacle to your growth
  • How to recognize the subtle signs that you’re becoming a more conscious, compassionate being
  • A final journey through the guided chant Hanuman Stavan

“So, in that sense, everything we do for ourselves, we're also doing for all other beings, because ultimately there are no other beings. We are all one. Maharaj-ji said this, over and over. ‘All one.’ There is only one, and we are the ‘cells of that body of one.’”

What Graduates of Krishna Das’ Courses Are Saying...

 
“Krishna Das has a wonderful way with words.”

Krishna Das has a wonderful way with words. His stories can be listened to over and over. I traveled with him virtually (in this course) to India as I listened to stories about the yogis, rishis, and saints. This course touched my heart. After listening to his stories, my spiritual practice has deepened. Thank you!
Dr. Denise Tarasuk

“This course helped put my life back on course after a long-lasting trauma that had embedded itself into my soul.”

This course helped put my life back on course after a long-lasting trauma that had embedded itself into my soul. I hadn’t chanted or even sung much in years; my voice didn’t seem to even work anymore. With Krishna Das’ chants and candid stories and with the presence of Neem Karoli Baba throughout it all, something began to change inside of me. The negative mental tapes and emotional chaos of the PTSD started to quiet and my heart became more open and receptive again. Thank you, Krishna Das! Namaste!
Linda, Creston, California

“Krishna Das is an inspired, wise, heart-open, and deeply honest teacher.”

Krishna Das is an inspired, wise, heart-open, and deeply honest teacher. His stories revealed a whole world of heart-realized beings and opened my heart wide. I loved learning the chants and mantras, and have begun my own practice. I didn’t want his course to end!
Ariel, New York

“The energy was wonderful, Krishna Das was wonderful, and so was everyone involved.”

I have immense gratitude for the opportunity to take this course. The energy was wonderful, Krishna Das was wonderful, and so was everyone involved. I don’t feel that attempting to describe what the course did for me can capture what it actually has done and will continue to do in my life. In short, heart-opening moments, wisdom to take forward, and lots of joy for having participated.
Morgan, Bloomington, Indiana

“I remember lying in bed listening to KD singing the Arti, and my heart opened and every note was like energetic power pouring into my veins.”

It’s important for me to share how significant this course has been for me. I have a severe liver disease and I was hospitalized in the last two weeks. I got to the hospital with no coagulability whatsoever, and everyone was amazed how and where I found the strength to be until the hospitalization. I remember lying in bed listening to KD singing the Arti, and my heart opened and every note was like energetic power pouring into my veins. I felt it like an enormous drum that lets the healing lights in. I brought the chant lyrics with me to the hospital, and in the first week the doctors didn’t want me getting up on my own and moving at all. However, I chanted both out loud and silently, and I wrote the lyrics of Mere Gurudev and chanted and chanted and had the energy to get up and take care of myself.
Ronny Sokolov, Israel

“It has brought more peace into my heart.”

This course with Krishna Das has deepened my understanding of the importance of chanting and has encouraged me to do more chanting on my own when I walk or even as I go about my day. It has brought more peace into my heart.
Monique, North Brunswick, New Jersey

“It was a privilege to spend time with a wonderful, inspiring, and generous teacher like Krishna Das.”

This experience was very special and meaningful. It helped me discover a new path and a greater connection to myself. It was a privilege to spend time with a wonderful, inspiring, and generous teacher like Krishna Das. I really appreciated his honesty and sense of humor and how he made everybody feel welcome. Chanting with him opened up my soul and heart. I would recommend this course to anyone and I would definitely take another course with him and The Shift Network. Thank you!
Natalia, Mexico City, Mexico

“Chanting and listening to KD’s stories of the divine beings got me through some difficult times…”

Through this course, I grew in my connection and love for Ram Dass, Maharaj-ji, and Krishna Das. Chanting and listening to KD’s stories of the divine beings got me through some difficult times, helped my heart expand and grow, and connected me to precious practices and community! I feel very grateful!
Kristin VL, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Krishna Das is a true inspiration for living the heart path.”

I am experiencing a deeper connection to life than I thought possible. My mindset is shifting and I have a greater experience of peace every day. The support I received during the duration of this course has been amazing. Krishna Das is a true inspiration for living the heart path.
Jenna, Dublin, Ireland

About Krishna Das

Layering traditional kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called “yoga’s rock star.” With a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener, Krishna Das — known to friends, family, and fans as simply KD — has taken call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the bestselling Western chant artist of all time. His album Live Ananda (released January 2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category.

KD spent the late ’60s traveling across the country as a student of Ram Dass. In August 1970, he finally made the journey to India, which led him to Ram Dass’ own beloved guru, Neem Karoli Baba, known to devotees as Maharaj-ji. Given the name Krishna Das, KD began to chant as part of following the path of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion.

He took solace in music, finding peace and strength in his Bhakti yoga practice, as well as in such heroes as Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, and Bruce Springsteen (whom he laughingly calls “the Bodhisattva of New Jersey”). KD also co-founded Triloka Records, a California-based label specializing in world music, releasing such artists as Jai Uttal, sarod virtuoso Ali Akbar Khan, and legendary jazz musician/composer Jackie McLean.

In 1994, KD started to lead chanting at Jivamukti Yoga Center, NYC with an ever-growing audience of yoga students that has led him to chant with people all around the world. In February 2013, Krishna Das performed at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles, which was streamed online to millions of viewers. The award-winning film One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das, which has been shown in over 100 U.S. cities and in more than 10 countries, is available on DVD everywhere.

KD’s 16th album, Peace of My Heart, released in October 2018 on behalf of the Kirtan Wallah Foundation, offers nearly two hours of deeply moving, meditative, and artfully restrained recordings born out of a request from a yoga teacher who works with autistic children. Forgoing the ecstatic tempo changes so common to temple-style kirtan, these five tracks move slowly and deliberately. The song-to-song steadiness is both striking and soothing, and as emotionally impactful as ever.

“The chanting just hits you and you want to be a part of it,” KD promises.

“That’s the point of this whole thing. That’s what cuts through all the ‘stuff.’ You get lit up. You don’t have to know what it means.”
