A longtime devotee of Neem Karoli Baba, Sruti Ram has taught with Ram Dass, the renowned spiritual teacher, for 30 years. This traditional style of chanting, call and response is an integral aspect of his teachings. He has led kirtan (devotional chanting) at his home in Woodstock, New York, and in many places regionally and nationwide for three decades. Sruti Ram Baba recently returned from a six-week tour of Rajhisthan India, where he sang kirtan at sacred temples for gatherings up to 80 thousand people during which he was viewed on national TV and interviewed by the Hindi Times. He has sung in ancient temples such as Kirshnas' birthplace in Matra, in many ashrams in Shiv Puri, in the palatial temple/ home of the Sindia family. He has been requested to sing for many gurus and saints in India and has always been acclaimed for his devotional mood and energy. He has a standing invitation to sing at the residence of the Ambassador of Venezuela in New Delhi. When ever in Rishikesh he is invited to sing for Shantimai at her ashram there during her satsangs.
He recently spent three months at the home of Ram Dass in Maui in the roll of pujari[priest], kirtan leader, personal assistant and friend.
His book containing many stories of his personal adventures in his search for the divine connection is forthcoming.
