On this episode, we interview a Hindu monk. We explore the methods and thought processes of Hinduism, and try to enter into the perspective of what may be the oldest religion in the world. In the process, we examine the purpose and nature of religion, the self, enlightenment, and the meaning of rebirth and reincarnation.
Swami Sarvapriyananda is the Minister and spiritual leader of the Vedanta Society of New York.
