The music-filled documentary One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das chronicles the life of Jeffrey Kagel…and how his life path ultimately resulted in his emergence as Krishna Das—the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-nominated recording artist.

It begins in 1970, when young musician Kagel turned down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from the New York suburbs to the Himalayan foothills in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji).

One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual “return” as Krishna Das.

Directed by Jeremy Frindel, the movie features interviews with Be Here Now author Ram Dass, music producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica), well-known writers Sharon Salzberg, and Daniel Goleman, along with a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas

The unrated One Track Heart received a limited release to U.S. theaters in May of this year following a well-received roll-out to festivals in 2012.

The DVD includes the following features:

  • HD transfer, enhanced for widescreen viewing
  • Deleted Scenes with Krishna Das, Ram Dass, Dr. Larry Brilliant and others
  • Additional Krishna Das concert footage
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • 5.1 and stereo soundtracks
  • Optional subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired (SDH)
