Krishna Das – Ep. 27 – Reality, Why We Practice, Guru and Self

KD explains that the deeper we go within ourselves the more realize the conditioned nature of our reality. Through practice we learn to release the thoughts that program our version of the world around us, and our experience slowly begins to change. Returning to our practice is crucial, regardless of how we feel, if we ever hope to cultivate the strength necessary to break our attachments to the inevitable highs and lows that life offers. KD also touches on the importance of finding what works for you regarding your own personal path, practice or devotion. Other topics include children’s response to chanting, and KD’s early influences on the path.
