I cannot explain this phenomenon, and yet I love it.
I love that many of us were not blessed with amazing singing voices,
and yet, when we sing together, the result is always so lovely.
Last night, I went to see the Dave Matthews of chanting music--Krishna Das.
After several years of rocking out to his call-and-response chanting in my car,
and a trip to India that brought his music even closer to my heart,
excitement bubbled inside me at the thought of seeing him live.
and delivers it in such a perfect package that one feels the essence
of the Divine presence within--that perfect love, perfect joy, perfect peace.
It was a deeply spiritual experience.
Even as I write that, I imagine my readers thinking of soothing lullabies.
It may come as a surprise that the music is extremely energizing.
The uplifting and powerful energy crashes over you.
You cannot help but sing, clap, dance, smile.
His love and reverence for Jesus came as a pleasant surprise.
I'm so thankful for the message of unity delivered by the great ones.

Thank you, Krishna Das, for sharing your gift.
Any other chanting fans out there?
