One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das (DVD)
Directed by Jeremy Frindel
“AN EMOTIONALLY WROUGHT DOCUMENTARY about the spiritual journey and immense love story of chant master Krishna Das…. Will move you to tears with its many poignant moments of deep feeling and connection.”
—Spirituality and Practice
In 1970, a young musician named Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ’n’ roll stardom—turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from the New York suburbs to the Himalayan foothills in search of happiness and a then-little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji).
One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das—the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-nominated recording artist. Featuring interviews with Be Here Now author Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica), New York Times bestselling author Sharon Salzberg, and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas, One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man’s journey continues to transform countless lives.
DVD Extras Include:
- HD transfer, enhanced for widescreen viewing
- Deleted Scenes with Krishna Das, Ram Dass, Dr. Larry Brilliant and others
- Additional Krishna Das concert footage
- Original theatrical trailer
- Optional subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired
- 5.1 and stereo soundtracks
I would recommend anybody, whether you are a left brainer, right brainer, soul-minder or not at all a yogi freak, to see this documentary.
One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das will move you to tears with its many poignant moments of deep feeling and connection.
