Unmistakable Creative: An Interview about an Ex-Monk’s Spiritual Path
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.
The path for spiritual growth is a life-long pursuit, and I am happy and grateful to share my insights with those who are willing to listen. Thank you to Srinivas Rao and the team of Unmistakable Creative for being interested in my life and work and sharing it with others.
