Nectar of Immortality: Soma, the Eternal Universal Energy of Peace, Bliss, and Delight
In this Pandit Vamadeva Shastri (David Frawley) brings his depth of knowledge in the fields of Ayurveda, Yoga, and the Vedas to this conversation with Yogacharya O’Brian about Soma—the power of rejuvenation and immortality. The secret of Soma holds profound implications for the body, mind, and spirit and our ability to transform our lives through spiritual awakening and rejuvenation.

The Yoga Hour: Living the Eternal Way offers inspiration, insights and time-tested practices from the ancient system of Kriya Yoga philosophy and practice for spiritually conscious, fulfilled living in today’s world.
From the ocean of wisdom of the Vedic rishis, or sages, flows a stream of inspiration to powerfully transform the way we live every moment of every day. This hour of keen insight into spiritual principles touches upon the most practical aspects of our lives such as work, relationships, health and diet. Yet even while emphasizing the practical, it speaks to our deepest yearnings to fully awaken to Self- and God-realization in this lifetime. Every seeker who yearns to know the Truth and to live in harmony with it will find The Yoga Hour to be a trusted place to listen, to reflect, to stretch the mind, and to open the heart.
