A Lecture About Relativity

Wow. This thirty minute lecture starts off a bit fuzzy; the speaker, Amrit Desai, had just woken up. But give it some time. This is one of the clearest, freshest, most efficient and accessible explanations of Indian philosophy you'll ever find. There's very little jargon, though one word to know is "prana", Sanskrit for the animating energy of the body.

I ought to acknowledge that the part about plants having auras ("they've proven it scientifically!") is highly embarrassing. And his explanation of karma could have been a lot better. But the part about relativity and happiness is just superb; beautifully expressed. Also, there's a certain vibe; see whether you're in anywhere near the same mindframe after watching that you were before...
