Artists on Film: Krishna Das
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
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 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. One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man's journey continues to transform countless lives.
