Bhagavan Das is a California-born Bhakti Yogi who in the 1960’s was the first Western disciple of the modern saint Neem Karoli Baba. He spent 7 years in India and Nepal studying Hinduism, Buddhism, meditation, and living the life of a sadhu (an ascetic holy man). As a devotee and scholar, Bhagavan Das offers an unparalleled perspective on blending Eastern consciousness into the spiritual whirlpool of Western life. He serves as a guide to identify and celebrate the sacred in our own lives. Bhagavan Das, author of ‘It’s Here Now, Are You? (a spiritual memoir)’ is a Master of chanting and Nada Yoga- the mysticism of sound. His latest CD, produced by Mike D, mixes Eastern chants with pop beats.
