Welcome Bhagavan Das to Bethel Farm to Celebrate the Winter Solstice
Saturday, December 20, 7:00-10:00 pm
“You have to want God like a drowning man wants air.” –Bhagavan Das during one of his visits to Bethel Farm.
When Bhagavan Das sings, within his voice is a crying out–for joy, from sorrow, in longing–for relief, refuge, to find a home in this world or another.
And we are invited to sing with him, and in singing to uncover the depths of our own longing for wholeness and union.
Bhagavan Das brought Kirtan to the U.S. from India and his guru Neem Karoli Baba in the late 1960’s. The intensity of his heart broke the ground and his voice sowed the seeds 50 years ago that have sprouted into the amazing proliferation of Kirtan that we enjoy today.
His Kirtan is raw, simple–a two stringed gourd, his voice, and Kali his dear first responder.
Through singing with Bhagavan Das, we connect to the deeply human roots of devotional chant.
