About Michael Cassidy / AverageSoul

Hello and WELCOME to my Patreon page!

I am Michael Edward Cassidy (Mangalananda das), an American singer-songwriter and guitarist who has been a major contributor of Krishna Conscious songs for over forty years.
As a longtime student of the Bhagavad-gita: As It Is and the Bhakti Kirtan movement, their positive effects are reflected in my life and music.

At a meeting in 1975, I played some of my songs for my guru (teacher) A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada who first brought Krishna Consciousness to the Western world.
Srila Prabhupada was pleased and said, “Do it. It will be successful.”
His instruction would change my life forever.

My first release in 1976, "A Change of Heart," was a landmark album for this genre and a breakthrough for other aspiring Krishna devotee songwriters.

The Glories of Lord Krishna, as well as the journey of an aspiring transcendentalist in modern America, remain the subject of my work.

As a Patron, you will help me to continue to produce albums and videos, teach others the craft of playing guitar and songwriting, and distribute the benefits of Krishna Consciousness to others through music.

Thank you!
