Storyline

In 1970, Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock 'n' roll stardom, turning down the chance to record as lead singer for the band soon-to-be the Blue Oyster Cult. Instead, he sold all his possessions and moved from the suburbs of Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba. ONE TRACK HEART: THE STORY OF KRISHNA DAS follows his journey to India and back, witnessing his struggles with depression and drug abuse, to his eventual emergence as Krishna Das, world-renowned spiritual teacher and chant master. Featuring interviews with Ram Dass (LSD Icon Richard Alpert), Rick Rubin (Grammy Award winning Producer), Sharon Salzberg (NY Times bestselling author), Daniel Goleman (two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee), as well as a musical score by J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr) & Devadas, this is the inspiring story of how one man's heart-expanding journey continues to transform countless lives.

Brilliant Film
8 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. I was soooo surprised to what I had just viewed. A friend of mine who had little or no idea who he was became impressed with him. I have heard his music at a yoga studio a couple times. As well, as downloaded it but had no idea about his life and how he came to his music. He was a member of a musical band that is world famous and left to discover himself. All in, all a great film. By the time that the lights had come back on I had a renewed appreciation of him, and his work I would suggest this film to anyone who has heard his music. I am planning to purchase this film on Blue Ray. It is at times very beautiful to view.
