A remembrance of Krishnadas:
Krishnadas came to Eugene for a year in the middle 1980’s when we had no sheikh for our gatherings. His style was quite eccentric, and we became fast friends. He loved to sing and taught us harmony as well as many breath practices, all for developing the breath.
He was completely dedicated to Murshid Sam Lewis, both during and after Sam’s time on Earth. I never saw or heard of him as disloyal to his Teacher, ever. His devotion was completely steadfast for his teacher.
In my early Sufi years, I was having vision-dreams; KD was very helpful in clarifying their meanings for me, as my own intitiator lived in a faraway state. His guidance has proven itself for years.
KD’s devotion to this path was complete-and probably still is! I imagine him walking up a long spiraling path to the top of the mountain, hand in hand with Murshid Sam.
Peace and belsssings to you, KD, and may God preserve your secret.
Ya Fattah, brother; Toward the One.
