SoulTalk with Kute Blackson

Aug 15, 2023

In this week’s episode of The SoulTalk Podcast, we have a special guest joining us ~ Robert Thurman, a respected figure in Buddhism and Tibetan culture. Robert shares his spiritual journey, which began with a feeling of being a “stranger in a strange land” during his childhood. His quest for deeper meaning led him to meet the Dalai Lama and become a follower of Buddhism.

Robert delves into the concepts of reincarnation according to Buddhist teachings, the dream-like state called “bardo,” the after-death life, and rebirth. He explains why the soul’s progression depends on its level of openness and compassion, and how enlightenment is the ultimate state of control. Also, he touches on topics related to consciousness, the unconscious mind, and the infinite nature of life.

Tune in and get ready to embark on another captivating episode as we dive deep into the realms of spirituality, enlightenment, and life’s true purpose.
