If you’ve ever wanted to feel better, enjoy life more, and feel our oneness or our interconnected being-ness with everyone and everything around you, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking Lama Surya Das, considered one of the foremost Western Buddhist meditation teachers and scholars. The Dalai Lama affectionately calls him “The Western Lama”. And He’s the best-selling author of 13 books including Buddha Standard Time, Awakening the Buddha Within and his latest book Make Me One With Everything:

Today we’ll be talking about oneness and inter-meditation, or connecting to everyone and everything around us. We’ll talk about why we should do it, how we should do it, when we should do it, and what in the world we have in all have in common with a hot dog.
