Without knowing hardly anything about Buddhism, Todd Perelmuter decided to jump in with both feet by going to live at a Buddhist monastery as a monk in the Himalayan mountains in India.
After months living in complete silence, without technology or a phone, and even without books except for Buddhist texts, Todd discovered a wisdom and philosophy that would totally change his life as it had for countless Buddhists for more than two and a half millenia.
In this podcast you’ll learn about this time-tested, age-old, life-changing philosophy as Todd recounts his story there. As a Buddhist monk told Todd in his time there, “Buddhism is not a religion, it is a way of life.” No matter what you believe, or don’t believe, their psychological and spiritual techniques can surely help anyone get through anything.
