On Krishna Das’s latest live 2-disk CD, he revisits many recorded favorites and includes a few new ones, including the lively gospel song “Jesus on the Mainline”. While this recording has a similar vibe to his first live CD, Live on Earth, it has more of a spacious feel to it, with more overall reverb and a larger sounding chorus. It is also interesting to compare the two recordings to see how Krishna Das has subtly changed over the 9 years between them.Heart Full of Soul has Krishna Das’s current touring musicians performing with the addition of a few other musicians playing bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar and drum kit. This gives this recording a large full band sound, and seems more of a traditional rock sound than Live on Earth. The tempo and energy build through songs as typical with a live kirtan performance, but overall Heart Full of Soul is a bit more mellower than Live on Earth.

In times of crisis, we often feel we don’t have the time or energy to practice, but those are precisely the times when the practice is most necessary. This is what we’ve been practicing for: the situations where the practice doesn’t come easily. When the winds of change reach hurricane force, our inner refuge of mindfulness, concentration, and discernment is the only thing that will keep us from getting blown away.
