One Track Heart2012

The Story of Krishna Das

  • 4.5
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 suburbs of New York to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba (or Maharajji). 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 and spiritual guru Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin, 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.

I loved this film. It's notable for the quality of the interviews, which are candid and deeply moving. You get a sense of the great spiritual trek of the 1960s from the West to India, and in particular of the powerful effect Neem Karoli Baba had on his students. Krishna Das shares his story frankly and with feeling, which is quite a gift.
