Special New Years day episode features a live report from India on the departure Lila of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaj. Gaudiya Vaishnava Scholar Bali Fergusson will highlight details regarding Srila Narayana Maharaj's role within the history of Sri Caitanya's Global Sankirtan Movement and his legacy. Also this episode will feature our first live India report with Nrihari Nijensohn, a Shiksha disciple and associate of Srila Narayana Maharaj. Nrihari Prabhu was present during Maharaj's last days in Puri, Orissa and the Samadhi dedication and burial ceremony held in Navadwip, W. Bengal. And Introducing 'American Veda-from Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation How Indian Spirituality Changed the West' a revolutionary new book by Phillip Goldberg. Goldberg paints a compelling picture of this remarkable East-to-West transmission, showing how it moved from the counterculture into laboratories, libraries, and living rooms. American Veda shows how we have come to accept and live by the central teaching of Vedic wisdom: “Truth is One, the wise call it by many names.” Also featured in this episode I will discuss the views of the Indian Scholar Basanta Chatterjee. According to his research Hindu civilization has outlived ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, Babylon, Phoenicia et al because it has always been a civilization based upon devotion to God. Unaffected by the ravages of time India's Hindu civilization thrives due to its focus upon the Eternal Spirit of God.While many despise the Caste system as a curse upon India, Prof Chatterjee opines that it was the Varna system by which 'India excelled all other peoples of the world in the arts and industries from the very beginning of recorded history.'
