Krishna Das: What is Bhakti?
Bhakti means immersing yourself in love that’s a million times more powerful than the love most of us are familiar with. This unconditional love is our true nature, says Krishna Das. He explains how, by directing love within, we can begin to intuitively experience this more powerful love that is free from attachment and ego. Krishna Das also comments on the role of emotions such as fear and guilt in keeping us away from love, and on the need to loosen the shackles around our hearts. “Ultimately,” he says, “our hearts have to become as wide as the world.”
Krishna Das travels the world, leading call-and-response kirtans with thousands of people.
