Editorial Reviews

In 1970, a young musician named Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock 'n' roll stardom turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from the New York suburbs to the Himalayan foothills in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji).

One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel's journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-nominated recording artist. Featuring interviews with Be Here Now author Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica), New York Times bestselling author Sharon Salzberg, and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis and Devadas, One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man's journey continues to transform countless lives.

The music is wonderful, his story is inspiring and uplifting as well.
Sheri Fogarty
Interesting to learn about Krishna Das and nice because it's pretty much a straightforward story without a lot of forced mysticism.

This is just the beginning of a journey in which devotion, music, and grace overcome the obstacles to real spiritual understanding.

This is an amazing film! I'm not a big yoga person myself, so I was surprised when I was moved by it and wanted to watch it again. It was heartfelt and told an interesting story about Krishna Das and his path to happiness. I really liked how Krishna Das wasn't a perfectly zen yogi, but a real person with problems and it was so moving to see how he moved forward in his life. Also, learning more about the Maharaj-ji was fascinating. I wish I had gone on the same journey, but can live vicariously through this film. I strongly recommend this film!

I loved this movie, and will undoubtedly see it again. A story of utter devotion to the heart of one's existence, as seen through the eyes of Krishna Das and those who know and love him, One Track Heart delivers. I came upon the music of this spiritual bard when my daughter was dying. I would listen to Krishna Das every night, and it would carry me to the peace that is within us all, no matter what. It is eight years later, and imagine my surprise to first, find this treasure of a DVD, and second, to hear in it that many people are drawn to this masterful music when a loved one is dying, or when other spiritual transformative events are occurring. See this movie, and be inspired by the story and music of Krishna Das. Thank you, Krishna Das.

Having recently discovered Kirtan music, this film offered an opportunity to learn more about America's leading Kirtan practitioner. The film delivered much more than I expected. Krishna Das is truly a fascinating character with a moving story. It is the story of a talented Jewish boy from Long Island whose experiments with LSD lead him to Ram Dass and then to India, where he is inspired by the master, Neem Karoli Baba (known to followers as Maharaj-ji), to express his devotion through music. This is just the beginning of a journey in which devotion, music, and grace overcome the obstacles to real spiritual understanding. Including interviews with Ram Dass, Daniel Golemen, Sharon Salzberg, and several others, this film will go on my list of great spiritual documentaries. And I haven't even mentioned the wonderful soundtrack.

This documentary filled me with joy and brought tears to my eyes. It's impossible not to be stirred by Krishna Das' soulful chanting and touched by his devotion. It was also interesting to hear more of his story and learn about some of his personal challenges. I thought it dragged a bit in places, but overall was a wonderful gift to the world. It may appeal more to people who are already Krishna Das fans, or who are interested in kirtan and spirituality of an eastern flavor. I'm grateful to the producers and to Krishna Das for bringing us this gem. Very inspiring!

Dear Hearts: I have chanted with Krishna Das for over 7 years....and chanting is now a part of my practice. "One Track Heart" tells the story of how KD became...KD. The story is told with honesty and humor and so much devotion to his guru - Maharaj-ji.

All Love,
Padme A'Tea

I first learned of Krishna Das' music in a yoga class, and have a few favorites that I like to use during Svasna. When I saw this documentary I decided I had to watch it learn more about this person who created this relaxing music. Turns out his story is pretty crazy, and starts from his career as an American rockstar - I HAD NO IDEA. Anyway, this is more of a drug, rock 'n roll story than a meditative relaxing story but is totally interesting regardless.
