Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Krishna Das is known for his ability to transport music lovers to other worlds with the eloquence of his deep, hypnotic voice. Today, in a rare moment, he offers Flow of Grace--a collector's book and CD specially created to deepen our understanding of one of the most revered pieces of Hindu literature, Hanuman Chaleesa. Forty lyrical verses give praise to Hanuman--the monkey god known as the pinnacle of bhakti (devotion) and the remover of fears and obstacles. It is said that just by reciting these powerful Sanskrit words, you will gain great strength and confidence, and be filled with divine energy. Now with Flow of Grace, Krishna Das explores:

- The correct pronunciation and translation of each of the forty transformative verses

- How to invoke Hanuman's grace and healing

- The power of kirtan (sacred chant), chaupai (Hindi poetry), and more

Flow of Grace also includes a specially recorded CD of Krishna Das chanting all forty verses of Hanuman Chaleesa for listeners to chant along with, and to experience the healing powers of this great work. Synopsis

World-renowned recording artist Krishna Das gives readers a rare treat: commentary, instruction, and a CD exploring the classic Hindu poem Hanuman Chaleesa.

Review:

"'Das, a devotee of the Indian guru Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji), spends his time introducing people to the path of devotion. Using his skills both as a guide and as a recording artist, he puts together a beautifully illustrated interpretation and primer to the Hindu literary classic, the Hanuman Chalisa, a 40-line lyrical poem written in praise to the monkey god best known for his limitless devotion. Das briefly shares his own path before giving a lengthy description of the Hindu tradition of the story of Hanuman, though he briefly touches on both the Tibetan and Chinese traditions as well. The explication of the text is very accessible, though a more thorough translation of the Indian words that pepper his writing would make this easier for the completely uninitiated. In addition to the transliteration at the end, one CD provides a well-paced reading of the poem, as well as a line-by-line recording. Most striking is the second CD, which offers a heartfelt chanting of the verses. In his deep, soulful voice (reminiscent of the Crash Test Dummies' lead singer, Brad Roberts), Das shows us all — devotees, seekers and the merely curious — the exquisite beauty of the Hanuman Chalisa.'
