It’s All Happening with Zach Leary returns with a new episode featuring Phil Goldberg the author of the new book “The Life Yogananda – The Story of the Yogi Who Became the First Modern Guru.” Phil sheds light on the life and influence that Paramahansa Yogananda had on the American ethic. Arriving in 1920 in Boston, Yogananda soon after traveled through America spreading his brand of Indian mysticism and yogic philosophy onto the American public.
Our podcast conversation touched on some of the more important milestones of Yogananda’s life, his influence on LA specifically and how his teachings are still felt today. Yogananda remains one of the most colorful icons of the yogic revolution in the West. Phil’s intellect, humor and wisdom is the perfect vehicle to capture this portrait and to tell the story.
INTRO RANT – April 2018 marks the anniversary of two different yet equally important milestones – the 50th anniversary of MLKs death and the 75th anniversary of the first LSD experiments.
Phililp Goldberg is the author or co-author of numerous books; a public speaker and workshop leader; a spiritual counselor, meditation teacher and ordained Interfaith Minister. A Los Angeles resident, he cohosts the Spirit Matters podcast, leads American Veda Tours and blogs regularly on Elephant Journal and Spirituality & Health.
