Sacred Music for Sacred Forests
A Benefit to Support Wildlife & Wild Places in India
With chanting and music by Krishna Das, Nina Rao, and Noah Hoffeld a talk by Chief Conservation Scientist & Executive Director of Center for Wildlife Studies India, Dr. Krithi Karanth, as well as a special message from Prof. Robert A.F. Thurman of Tibet House.

In view of the climate crisis we are living through, we believe it’s important to turn our mind and energies with great intention to preserving the bio-diverse wilderness areas that exist in the world and continue the process of ‘re-wilding’ tracts of land (and water) so that we might continue to have the support of Nature for the well-being of human-Kind and all Beings. This requires a strong effort on our part to co-exist with wildlife and wild places… even if only to appreciate the pure Beauty of nature but also for the well-being of the Mother Earth that supports us and future generations.
This in-person evening is hosted by Saving Wild Tigers, with support from Tibet House and Kirtan Wallah Foundation.
