Phil Goldberg: How Vedanta was Introduced to the West

Join Rodney Yee as he sits down with Phil Goldberg, scholar and author of American Veda, to talk about how Eastern philosophies and sacred texts were brought to the West during the 19th and 20th centuries. Learn how Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and even Carl Jung all played a role in preparing the West to meet the traditions and yogic teachings of the East. Through incredible translators, India’s first yoga ambassadors to the West who were able to adapt to a diverse and new culture, these teachings have transformed the landscape of modern-day culture and are continuing to change the lives of many who practice.
