2008-September-New York and Cleveland

after the omega ecstatic chant weekend we stayed for a few days with shyamdas at his house in woodstock.

for those of you who haven’t heard of shyamdas, he is the pioneer of chant in the west.
a scholar and pundit who spent most of the past 20 years living in india, he has inspired everyone from krishna das to jai uttal, and deva and I are honoured to count him as a friend.
here he is teaching deva a new krishna bhajan

we arrived in cleveland ohio for an nbc tv breakfast show (mantras on a breakfast show?.. it’s true!).
we were so happy to hear that mahatma gandhi’s grandson was also on the show!
here he is talking about the book he has just written on his experiences with his grandpa

we played the shortest version of the gayatri mantra ever – three minutes.
but anyway, it felt auspicious to introduce cleveland to the gayatri – at 10 am in the morning – with gandhi’s grandson on the programme.
bizarre!

you can find a clip of the programme here or here

thanks to our concert promoter clyde chafer and all of you who came out to our concert at the ‘journey expo’ in cleveland.
we had a beautiful evening.
