Srinivas Rao is the creative engine  driving the popular podcast, Unmistakable Creative. There are over 400 interviews available directly through their archives and also through iTunes, with speakers from all walks of life including “happiness researchers,” psychologists and authors, all described as “creative entrepreneurs and insanely interesting people.”

I was honored to receive an interview request. Srini invited me to speak not only about my time as a Hindu monk and life in a monastery, but also questions ranging from the meaning of life, to making time for self-reflection and meditation, to pursuing systematic spiritual growth.

Commit to a path

It’s only when you commit to a spiritual path can you truly make progress. In fact, this applies to any path leading to a clearly defined goal. But people are terrified of commitment.
