Publisher's Summary

In this hour, travel writer William Dalrymple has lived in India since 1989, witnessing the economic boom and the cultural changes that followed. In his new book called Nine Lives he goes in search of the sacred. He tells Jim Fleming about some of those he discovered.

Next, in Tibet everyone knows who is sacred: it's the Dalai Lama who will turn 75 this year. Reporter Greg Bruno traveled around India and Nepal to investigate how Chines influence is shaping the lives of Tibetans far away from home.

Then, Hip Hop often concerns itself with everyday life, but these days there is at least one young artist who believes hip hop can change the face of devotional music. MC Yogi tells Anne Strainchamps how his music changed when he discovered yoga.

Finally, Stephen Batchelor wants contemporary Buddhists to re-think the life of the Buddha. The former Buddhist monk tells Steve Paulson that his close examination of early texts about the Buddha reveals a man concerned with the present world, not the world to come. [Broadcast Date: July 7, 2010]
