Daniel Tucker:

  “Of the many mantras that have become life-lines to the heart, to grace, to the "Oh… right, that's what life is about" glimpses of a deeper love... How many of those mantras came first through Krishna Das? For me, a lot.

As a community of love-seekers, we owe Krishna Das an enormous debt of gratitude. And yet, to meet him or go to a workshop with him is to discover a man without pretense, simply sharing the practice his guru gave him to "save his own ass." Direct, humble, devoted and love-able, KD's music and story have helped me find my way back to prayer, back to a relationship with God.

I hope you enjoy this story and CD of his, it is as much a darshan of his guru Neem Karoli Baba as it is a very relate-able, human story of grace always giving a second chance as we stumble along this spiritual path called life. ”
