    Liturgy: Gate Kirtan by Krishna Das

    Staten Island sangha teacher, Ken Byalin, mentioned this to us recently, and I like it and wanted to share it with you all:

    Kirtan version of the Gate of Sweet Nectar liturgy by Krishna Das:

    http://www.zenpeacemakers.org/zps/liturgy.htm

    Click on "Daily" and then click on "Krishna Das: Kirtan - Calling Out"

    Calling out to hungry hearts
    Everywhere through endless time
    You who wander, you who thirst
    I offer you this bodhi mind
    Calling out to hungry spirits
    Everywhere through endless time
    Calling out to hungry hearts
    All the lost and the left behind
    Gather 'round and share this meal
    Your joy and your sorrow, I make it mine

    Did he say more about it? I was surprised to find it on a Zen site, it feels so vajrayana.

    It's a riff on the "Gate of Sweet Nectar" liturgy, which is of Soto Zen / Japanese origin (offering to the hungry ghosts).

    Krishna Das apparently lives down the street from Bernie Glassman, who noted the absence of music in the Zen liturgy and asked Das if he could come up with something. Das does a lot of 'kirtan,' or devotional Hindu chanting music, and this is (somewhat) in that style.
