The Krishna Das Pilgrim Heart Hour features Krishna Das’ no-nonsense take on everyday struggles for finding balance on the spiritual path. Through the honesty, humility and humor of his own personal experiences, he points to the possibility of navigating life’s trials with a true inner yearning for truth. His own practice of kirtan or chant is the well stone of his ability to share from his spiritual heart. As KD says, “Love is a disease - we catch it from those who have it.”
Krishna Das explains that simple peace of mind is often underrated in our culture, and that thinking about peace is not the same thing as being peaceful. We seek enlightenment or bliss, not realizing that a calm and present mind is equally profound. Peace of mind is the middle ground from which we can choose what we want to hold in our thoughts. We have to allow it to arise from within through practice. How we live today is how we will live tomorrow, and our practice gives us the strength to let go of what is no longer serving us.
