THE CLAPTON OF KIRTAN
That's what Catesy calls Krishna Das, who will lead kirtan tomorrow night (April 11) at the Irish American Heritage Center.
He may look like Eric Clapton, but sound-wise he reminds me of Nick Cave.
Kirtan is call-and-response devotional chanting. It is a form of bhakti yoga - considered by many to be one of the easier paths to enlightenment. Dharma Mittra recommends singing to the lord to curb overeating.
Kirtan also helps cure a litany of other ills - including obsessive thoughts - and unleashes a sense of inner bliss.
Unless the kirtan-wallah really sucks - and KD is the best, hands down - it's hard to leave feeling worse than when you came in.
