09 - Kirtan (with Stina and Niels from Kirtan Copenhagen)
Stina and Niels organize regular Kirtan sessions with friends and friends of friends. They communicate through the Kirtan Copenhagen Facebook group and have performed in festivals. One year ago at their house in Mandrem, India I recorded two Kirtan sessions and an interview with Stina and Niels. The audio of the sessions was not so good and therefore I delayed uploading this chapter because I like so much what they do that don't feel so happy with the result. Nevertheless here it is, hope you can enjoy and from here all my gratefulness to Stina and Niels for organizing these events and sharing the time and their passion for Kirtan with us.

06 - Indian traditional philosophy (with Ira Schepetin - Atma Chaitanya)
Ira Schepetin is an scholar of Indian traditional philosophies and in particular Vedanta. I had the pleasure to ask him a couple of questions about the relationship of Yoga and indian traditional philosophies. Of course he didn't have time to cover the topic in depth but he gives some glimpses in this conversation which can be useful to start in the topic. He mentions the differences between Vedanta, Yoga (the philosophy) and Buddhism in several fundamental aspects. There are several of Ira's speeches in youtube like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usu_cLGXLg4I really hope next season I get more time to learn more from Ira.
