Raghunath and Kaustubha's connection goes back to their teens in the New York Hardcore Punk Scene of the early 80s, through serving together as Bhakti-yogi monks in the 90's, to sharing their experiences in the world of yoga in the 21st century.

Resisting the Clickbait
the transcendental Q-tip / resisting the clickbait of mundane sound / the one part of the body to focus on for a deeper yoga practice - the ear / mantra > pranayama > asana / if we don’t consciously swim against the tide we go downstream fast / the iPhone - a little box of “foul matter” / yoga sutras on how practice becomes firmly rooted
Getting to the Root of it All
we are only seeing what we see / a universal line-up of characters / getting to the root of it all / the opulences of the absolute / Raghu aces the 10th Chapter game / ant colonies and intuition / know that all opulent, beautiful and glorious creations spring from but a spark of Krishna’s splendor

Now Here You Go Again, You Say You Want Your Freedom
owls are dangerous / our desires get in the way of our making sense of the universe / pure soul theory - we’re not born sinful / the spiritual metaphor of Dogface208's viral video / Bhagavad-gita 18.63 - deliberate on this fully, and then do what you wish to do / the attraction of Krishna’s detachment / romance - micro & macro / the metaphor of the musk deer / Bhagavatam drops the pin in the material GPS
Our Desires Get in the Way
don’t waste your time / our desires get in the way of making sense of the universe / you need a peaceful mind to perceive truth / peace comes from selflessness / misconceptions of “there is no Mara” - “we are all Mara” / no mantras, no gurus, no chanting...no yoga / Srimad Bhagavatam is the spotless Purana / to those who are attached to sense enjoyment and material opulence, “no samadhi for you!” / Bhagavad-gita 2.44
The Qualification for Perceiving Truth is Devotion
go right for the essence / if you’re broken, you’re qualified / Instagram’s measure of success / creating with the mind - the iPhone is a looking glass / empirically, I can see that people wrongly limit their idea of what is possible / Raghu’s experiments in nature / qualifications to hear & know / spirituality isn’t joining a club, it’s a practice of gradual, step by step advancement / qualifications for perception beyond the senses is devotion / we’re making ourselves vessels for truth

A Tonic For Your Spirit
I discovered this podcast after listening to one of the presenters Raghunath on the Joe Rogan Podcast ( ep 1430 ). I have been 2 years sober since July 2018 year and i can say that without doubt this podcast has been a massive source of help and support for me . It’s a DAILY podcast ! Thats right , every day these guys get up on their mics to deliver knowledge , information, entertainment and spiritual guidance handed down from the great sages through the ages . If you are touched by anxiety, depression, addiction, hopelessness, or confusion and more to the point a desire to feel a sense of true purpose and meaning to existence then i urge you to dip your toe into this podcast and see if it floats your boat . So much compassion and non-judgmental support is here for you . If you like it you can become a Patreon member for as little as a dollar a month and enjoy so much more content such as Yoga Classes and all sorts of Fascinating Lectures on Spiritual subjects . This is the first review I’ve ever written and i do it as i hope that it may lead others to subscribe and benefit as i continue to do so . Thanks for reading . Love to all . Olly
Best Spiritual Podcast Right Now!!!
I wanted to take a moment to really appreciate @kaustubha and @raghunathyogi from the @wisdom_of_the_sages podcast. Although, I was raised with the teachings of the Gaudiya Vaishnava philosophy. I never really found the time or enthusiasm to study the Śrīmad Bhāgavatam in depth. Both of you make this great epic so accessible and fun to dive into, that I can't even sleep at night sometimes in anticipation for the next episode. Thank you for keeping the wisdom real and relevant for us. Thank you for pouring your hearts into the Śrīmad Bhāgavatam.
