For the 89th episode of the Metta Hour Podcast, Sharon speaks with her longtime friend and colleague, Krishna Das.
Sharon and KD originally met in India sitting an S.N. Goenka retreat together in the early 70s. Krishna Das is a Grammy nominated musician, who has released 15 albums to date, as well an autobiography, “Chants of a Lifetime” released in 2010 and “Flow of Grace” released in 2006. He is also the subject of the award-winning documentary, “One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das” released by Zeitgeist Films. For many years Sharon and KD have taught together combining their respective traditions of Bhakti Yoga and Buddhist practices. In this conversation, these two friends speak about their early time together in India, as well as the KD’s relationship to his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba, and the concept of the teacher/guru. The conversation closes with KD leading a guided meditation practice.
