Condensed version that it is of the Mahabharata, the company that does the production of this does a very good job. It all feels very animated and brings it to life.
A great companion book would be Krishna Krishna by Indra Parthasarathy which is available on audible. Using the platform of the Mahabharata it really brings the person who Krishna is to life as well as giving some great commentary on the Mahabharata.
While all the characters are brought to life, Draupadi and Krishna were my personal favorites.
The ending provoked tears of joy at the conclusion... Jaya! - Spiritual victory
The delivery by John Daido Loori Roshi is great. Just as all dharma talks, be present with the words and everything else is secondary.
Shakyamuni Buddha and his struggle which mirrors our own.
It's a lecture. He breaths life into the Buddha.
Only the first few hours and only if already introduced to non-dualism.
No, research her...
Narration was good for what this is but I can see how some may not like it.
I didn't make it to the end but 20 hours in and then skipping around the end. There are better books about practicing non-duality, but this does offer a few tools early on.
The subtle trap of this text is the way it eventually talks in circles. Saying the same things in different manners and different angles. You're better off with the Sri Bhagavad Gita, The Teachings of Ramana Maharshi, true Buddhist teachings and similar titles. This book still creates a barrier for any true non-dual practice because it never seems to point you towards the Atman (or Brahman or One that is) which is our true nature. So give it a listen if you still need a few tools other wise pass it up and stick with the essentials of Advaita.
