March 31, 2021

This week Phyllis returns to discuss the differences between Western thinking and Eastern thinking.  Her knowledge really is astounding.

Unfortunately, the recording equipment really doesn't like the Agnes-Phyllis connection as this week's episode is a bit problematic too, but like last week, it's so worth listening through.

Phyllis mentions valuable readings to get a better understanding of the "knowledge" that exists, especially in Eastern thinking.  Her reading list is below:

The Upanshads – Eknath Easwaran     The Upanishads have been translated by many however this particular author is one of the clearest, and so his edition is being suggest.

Mahabharata – A story of a war – Shrila Vyasadeva, summarized by Purnaprajna das.

Bhagavad-Gita As It Is – Swami Prabupada.  This is available through the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali – Patanjali   This book describes the base of Yoga.

These are two specific books, other are also available.

The Gospel of Thomas – Hidden sayings of Jesus – Harold Bloom.             

The NAG Hammadi Scriptures – Edited by Marvin Meyer.  Originally discovered in 1945. A compete collection of the scrolls, but it is not an easy read.
