I started listening to this podcast a few months ago and caught up just yesterday. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and will be eagerly awaiting each new episode. Nayaswami Asha really enriches this book with her commentary and that was one of the things that kept me coming back for 45 episodes. I also appreciated the classroom discussion setting and the questions the attendees asked were also helpful to clarify issues for me. Listening has certainly shifted my consciousness for the better and has encouraged me to explore other related materials mentioned in the podcast that I was curious about. Keep it up and know that you have a friend listening with you each week.
