March 09, 2014 Length: 1:38:27
Buddhists in the US are double the number of Orthodox Christians, and most American Buddhists are Western, not raised in Buddhist traditions. Kevin and his guests Fr. Brendan Pelphrey (GOA), an ex-missionary in Asia who has had dialogue with the Dalai Lama, and R. Todd Godwin, ex-Buddhist and Orthodox Christian, discuss the attractions of Buddhism, as well as its key teachings and practices, in comparison with and in contrast to those of Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
"It brings peace to an otherwise chaotic day. When I find myself at wits-end, I go to the Internet, plug in my earphones and listen to Ancient Faith Radio. While I feel overwhelmed with work issues, and often am close to tears, the sounds of Orthodoxy soothe my soul and bring me peace so I can take a deep breath and continue on with the rest of my work day!"
