We are very happy to announce Dr Krishna Kant, a renowned Indian musician’s unexpected but welcome visit to Chicago this Saturday, August 27th. We are trying to arrange for a concert at the Center during our Celebrating the Divine program from 3:00 to 5:00 pm and what a better way to celebrate Mandali Month than to listen to the heart songs of Kabir to the Beloved. We will have an intimate gathering with him and his guitar, playing love songs to the Divine Beloved…
Dr. Krishna Shukla, a Baba Lover who has spent much time at Meherabad, sings bhajans that will melt your heart. He especially loves the songs of Kabir, one of Baba’s favorites. Krishna Kant Shukla gave up his job as assistant professor of astronomy at an American college and returned to his native India to live his dream of singing bhajans (Indian devotional songs expressing love for the Divine). A distinguished lecturer with a Ph.D. in solid state physics now turned musician, his love for Varanasi, oldest living city in the world and holy city of India, and his passion for music “combine to serve as his breath for survival”. “Time stands still in Varanasi” Dr. Kant Shukla has said and “music is in my blood,… singing makes me come alive”. His bhajan performances at various cities in India have won him accolades. He has performed at the London Mela as a distinguished guest of the Mayor of London, but of more particular interest to Baba lovers is that Krishna has sung for Meher Baba’s old disciples at Meherazad, where, according to Meherabad resident Peter Booth, his “performance was one of the most moving and powerful I have experienced in thirty years.”
