In 1950, Radhanath Swami (nee Richard Slavin) was born into a middle class Jewish family in Chicago. At age 19, he set out to wander the world in search of a closer connection to God. He hitchhiked across Europe and the middle East and ending up in India. Along the way he survives multiple near-death encounters including run-ins with drug smugglers, robberies at knifepoint, an attack by a pack of wild dogs, being held captive by a large venomous snake, and nearly suffocating in quicksand. Today, Radhanath Swami is one of India’s premier spiritual leaders, with public appearances that draw thousands of followers. Last winter he was invited by her Excellency the President of India to her Palace where she thank him personally for his contributions in the formation of a massive food distribution center for indigent children, the establishment of orphanage, an eye clinic, and a hospital that heals both the body and the mind. His Holiness Radhanath Swami and I will be discussing his extraordinary memoir THE JOURNEY HOME, and his remarkable journey to enlightenment. Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday October 5th from 10-11am U.S. CDT to join his Holiness and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.
