Unlimited Resource of Wisdom and Inspiration

I’ve been studying Vedic wisdom for quite some time and discovered Dr Svoboda about a year ago. He has such a clear and beautiful way of explaining stories from the Vedic culture. Many of these stories I had heard before but it didn’t really click until I listened to the here. There’s timeless wisdom presented in a relatable fashion, sometimes with humor and always with reverence. This has become my favorite go-to podcast.

One of the best for all things Vedic

I started studying with “Robbie” back in 1991 while I was a student at The Ayurvedic Institute. I’ve always loved his teaching style of humor and profound wisdom. He makes amazing sense explaining complex, deep concepts of Ayurveda, Samkhya philosophy, and Jyotish. Really valuing this podcast.

Fascinating

Having known of Dr Svoboda through my interest in Ayurveda over long years, and his place as a revered and very knowledgeable pundit on the topic, I find it fascinating to learn of his beginnings. I see that he was precocious, open, curious, perceptive and determined even as a young man. It takes something to weather new landscapes, cultures and systems to quench one's thirst for learning or to follow one's heart. I myself am from India & Mumbai, but in Dr Svoboda I see somebody more well-versed in all things India. I take away many inspiring and life affirming nuggets whenever I listen to Dr Svoboda. Much gratitude and awe _()_
