Greatest Hits Package with a Plus, September 13, 2004
Reviewer: G. Sharik "gnshar01" (Athens, GA)
I've already got everything that Krishna Das has put out, so I debated whether I should purchase this 2 disc set. There is a new 13 minute track to start the collection off and it is ended with a DVD about KD's spiritual path, about one hour long. The pot is further sweetened with additional video of uncut live kirtans. The DVD is worth the price of admission alone.
This is a great package for introducing someone to either Krishna Das or devotional chant. I find my life increasingly enriched through kirtan and would recommend this set to anyone interested in learning more.

A few months ago I started getting interested in Sanskrit Mantra after a friend told me about Thomas Ashley-Farrand. I had no idea there was singing and chanting in the Vedic spiritual practices as well, and by chance came across Krishna Das, and something made me buy "Greatest Hits of the Kali Yuga". Imagine my joy when I realised just how lucky I was with this package!
The audio CD & DVD reeks of humility, compassion, feeling & surrender. The live Kirtan recordings are a masterful display of how 'sound' can be used to energise ourselves, open the heart, and alter our consciousness. The candid interviews with Krishna Das and dialogues with others close to him add to the integrity and quality of his work, and that of his guru Neeb Karori Baba.
We are so fortunate to have someone of Krishna Das's devotion and experience in the West, bringing authentic Eastern knowledge in a forum many can relate to, building on his musical strengths and insights. In this modern age we are blessed to be able to 'plug into' this advanced and beautiful spiritual practice without having to travel half way around the world.
This audio CD and DVD set is excellent value for money. Since purchasing it my curiousity has been aroused in Bhakti Yoga, and I've not found anything else yet, that incorporates a blend of Bhakti Yoga (devotion) with pictures! As a first introduction to Krishna Das, chanting, and Bhakti Yoga, "Greatest Hits" is the greatest you can get. You can't lose.

I own a yoga studio and teach several times a week. Krishna Das' music is always a favorite, but this CD in particular is perfect for a lively, upbeat yoga practice. My students connect with the beat, helping them move smoothly through the poses, connecting with their breath. As the chants become slower, more meditative, the practice also begins to slow. It is a wonderful transition for any yoga class. I highly recommend it!
