Krishna Das – Ep. 23 – Maharaji, Chanting, And Desire


“All of these great beings all these so called saints, bodhisattvas, and great yogis are here for only one reason. That reason is that we are unhappy.”

KD explains how he came to meet Maharaji and why it is that these great beings make themselves available on this plane. He also talks about learning to chant, encouraging newcomers to worry less about the specifics and to simply chant from the heart. Developing our own will power is also crucial in the formation and execution of any practice. Our relationship to desire is also discussed with an emphasis on letting go of unrealistic expectations rather than desire as a whole.
