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.
"I am presently listening to your broadcast from Spin Boldak, Afghanistan, where I serve as an Army Chaplain. When I am at my desk, I am listening to the treasury of Orthodoxy that you send forth, and I wanted to thank you. I walk around humming the music all day long. No words suffice to express the comfort and connection that comes to me through you website and the broadcast. Just wanted to say thank you and God bless you all."
