“Many times over the years, I’ve been asked if I could record longer versions of the chants that I have been doing. I have a dear friend who works with children with autism and special needs. She teaches them yoga using my CDs. The chanting has a soothing and relaxing effect on the kids, cooling them out and also helping them to connect deeply. But when the chants sped up, the kids get anxious and became distracted and disconnected. When she told me this, I offered to make longer versions of the same chants but keeping a steady tempo and without speeding up. This recording, done live in the studio with the great musicians that I regularly play with, is the result of her request.” – Krishna Das
A big thank you for the wonderful reception of this new music and all your kind messages.
My son is singing along with great gusto…To Peace of My Heart’. He says to me,”Nothing glamorous about this… But it’ll do!”
And, he reminds me about the movie “Babe,” When, at the end of the movie, Babe wins the Sheep Dog Herding Championship, and Farmer Hoggit says to Babe… “That’ll do Pig! That’ll do!” My Love ~ Yaffa
Thank you 🙏🏽 thank you for thinking of children with autism. We can use with elderly populations and people with Alzheimer’s diseases. Thank you 🙏🏽 ~ Paul
I used your Bhajans and Hanuman Chalisa on YouTube to soothe my ailing mother before she passed a few months back. She would accept some food while listening to you. She herself was a Hanuman devotee. Ever grateful for the vibes and energy you transfer through your music. Ever grateful that I found your music. Thank you so much. ~ Sangeeta
