Vegetarianism: an Interview of Abbot George on Australian Radio
About a month ago (September 2016), Bianca Lagonik Vlahos of Adelaide, Australia, became a vegan for a multitude of reasons. She researched the topic exhaustively and found several articles about aspects of vegetarianism on our website (See Spiritual Benefits of a Vegetarian Diet and Humans: Are We Carnivores or Vegetarians by Nature?) She is a radio announcer and producer at PBA-FM in Adelaide, and decided to contact Abbot George about doing a radio interview on the subject of the "connection between the Clarification of Morals & Ethics in relation to the food we eat."
So a few days ago we arose before 3:00 a.m. to prepare for the Australian radio interview which was to be at 6:45 p.m. Australia time. Bianca was an excellent host, having prepared well for the topic, and the interview was a success, going over time because of the interest of the host and listeners. Because of continued interest, there will be a follow-up interview in a couple of weeks. Below you can listen to the interview.

Memories of a Spiritual Giant
Abbot George relates his encounters with the God-man, Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, with vivid and amusing detail. This is a podcast well worth listening to both for the portrait of Swami Sivananda and for the teaching which Abbot George draws from his time with this saint.
