Being green, demons and too much snow

Tim Miller recounts his weekend with Krishna Das and plenty more in his latest post:

It was refreshing to hang out with Krishna Das over the weekend because he is very open in talking about his personal demons and the demons that torment all of us to some extent. He loves to tell the story of the great epiphany he had in his apartment in 1994, when, after a twenty year period of depression following the death of his guru Neem Karoli Baba, he realized that, “ the only way I was going to clean out the dark corners of my heart was by singing with people.” And so he found his Dharma, after many years of pain and suffering. When my own Guru, K. Pattabhi Jois passed away in 2009 I also went into a depression, for more like 20 months than 20 years—KD has always been way more dramatic than me.

As always, I’ve left the best parts for you to click to; you can find out how Tim’s relationship with Pattabhi Jois is now, read about his last time with Guruji and a little about poison.
