“If you meditate and you become calm and are at peace with the world, then you can arrive at an answer to the problem that is worrying you.”
Today’s enlightening conversation with Philosopher Madhuri Santanam Sondhi is a total privilege. At nearly 90 years old, she’s lived an extraordinary life. Madhuri has spent her life as a devoted wife to a celebrated politician, a mother to two children and also an Independent Research Scholar. She has a Masters in Philosophy from the University of Edinburgh and diplomas from the Universities of Oxford and London. She is also a Senior Fellow of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research. Friends with His Holiness the Dalai Lama for six-plus decades and a total devotee of her beloved Guru Swami Shyam.
Madhuri illuminates this episode with her wisdom, sweetness and delightfulness.
Here’s what we touch on:
➖07:55 Madhuri’s search for her Guru & finally meeting him
➖11:39 What no one ever taught you
➖22:22 Inner peace, social peace, political peace
➖26:25 Peace and Oneness
➖32:30 Spiritual outlook to deal with problems
➖37:17 Crisis as a great teacher
➖52:45 What happens to the mind in meditation
It is my wish for us all that we have such peace and settledness in us at 90 years old. This conversation exemplifies the power of oneness possible between two people regardless of age or background when tuned into the Self.
With love and oneness,
Thanks for listening, you beautiful soul!
