Kirtan w/ Bhagavan Das

Bhagavan Das is one of the last living cultural icon of the 60’s. As Ram Das’s mentor (author of Be Here Now) he ushered in the New Age Spiritual Movement being the first Kirtan Artist in America. His groundbreaking album “Ah” (1971), produced by Jimi Hendrix’s manager Michael Jeffrey, was the first World Music album from Electric Ladyland. Bhagavan Das has also toured with Allen Ginsberg, opened for the Grateful Dead and sang with Bob Dylan. Kirtan with Bhagavan Das is always a deep experience.

Living as a sadhu in India for six years, Bhagavan Das studied the ancient science of Nada Yoga under the guidance and direction of his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba. Nada Yoga is the path of devotion to the inner sound current as a means to God Realization. Alan Watts himself said in a Rolling Stone review of the Album “Ah” that “Bhagavan Das is truly a Master of Nada Yoga”.

To experience Bhagavan Das in concert is to receive Darshan of the Guru himself, to touch and be touched by the immortal essence of his Guru Neem Karoli Baba—as the Light of the Guru is delivered through the mystical and potent voice of Bhagavan Das. His devotion to his Guru as that living inner sound is what he shares and transmits to all that wish to receive this blessing. Bhagavan Das’s rare and sacred offering to this world is his singing open heart, heralding the Guru’s Grace through the vehicle of Sound.

NOTE: The request by the artists is that no children attend this event. Thank you!
