On this week's episode, Chad Foreman from The Way of Meditation spoke about the different paths to Self-realization. There are direct paths like Advaita Vedanta which teach us that we are already enlightened, and we simply have to find a way to realize that pre-existing truth. On the other hand, there are gradual paths which require the steady practice of spiritual techniques like meditation, yoga, and chanting as a way to prepare the body and mind for enlightenment. Chad tries to reconcile these two different methods in his teachings. Find out more by visiting his website: The Way of Meditation
