Profits from Kalidas' kirtans go to creating a Ma temple.
Kalidas has played kirtan music all over the Southwest. He was born in India where he lived in a small village for the first five years of his life. After coming to the United States and graduating from Vanderbilt University with a B.A., he felt a longing for a more simple Dharmic life. He revisited India, moved to the Southwest and began studying Eastern mysticism in spiritual communities, mainly Hindu and Buddhist. The next eleven years helped him reconnect with the basic principles of Sanatan Dharma and recreate a sense of balance that he had lost. Based on his own life experiences, Kalidas feels that if we learn to curb our attachment to modern technology and return to the simple laws of Mother nature, we will be able to live more fulfilling lives. Currently Kali is using his music to promote peaceful alternatives to war in Afghanistan and an end to torture.
