Krishna Das shares a dharma talk that explores the miracle of love available through our relationship with God and guru.
A Miracle of Love
Krishna Das shares experiences from his early time in India. He describes the moment he first met his guru, Maharaj-ji, and discovered the possibility of something much greater than the life he grew up knowing. How can we learn to find that same sense of infinite possibility within ourselves?
