Krishna Das consistently comes in swingin' at the shell around your heart with a sledgehammer (in a yogic, non-violent sorta way), but this is really his best effort at igniting the joy in the listener's heart. Every track systematically reaches into every nook and cranny in there and pulls out bliss, longing for the divine, and awareness. I use it constantly in my yoga classes. His greatest hits is an awesome introduction to KD, but this is a very close second. His other albums tend to be way more playful, or way more intimate, both of which are also great, but this one is just all love, all the time... Of course, you must go see him live when you get the chance, and get dunked in all that bhakti, but this will tide you over till then... Jai!
