He began his lifelong spiritual journey in the 60s traveling to India and studying with the legendary teacher Ram Dass and his guru, Maharaj-ji. KD’s spiritual practice is based on chanting the divine names and- until the recent pandemic-is on a never ending world tour performing for and chanting with his audiences. In this episode he shares stories of his years spent with Ram Dass and Maharaj-ji, including the time Ram Dass introduced his guru to LSD. He and Richard also discuss the roots of compassion, inner freedom, the necessity of practice, the fruits of chanting, the role of music in self-transcendence and its limitations, sound and the soundless, various contemplative traditions and the similarities and differences between chanting and mindfulness practices.”
