Religion, the Veda, and Cultural Integrity
by Michael Mamas

Lakshmi Interviews Michael Mamas

Michael Mamas describes religion as half spiritual and half cultural. In contrast, he explains that the Vedic tradition is not a religion. Instead, the Veda is the eternal underlying structure of existence, not just the song of life but also the science.

In the second half of the video, Michael Mamas discusses the cords of connection that must be created between cultures in order for the world to be healthy. Cultures need to be able to maintain their own integrity while also interfacing seamlessly and respectfully with other cultures.
