Kripa was born out of the love of Ram Dass, Neem Karoli Baba, and Hanuman. This upcoming kirtan tour aims to spread their timeless teachings of “Love, Serve, Remember.” In partnership with the Call and Response Foundation, we will be visiting several prisons as part of our west-coast tour, ensuring that these teachings and practices reach those who need it most.
