Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
How would you recognize an authentic saint? Do they exist only in the books we read long after they've passed from this life, or do we hear about them only after they have been publicly recognized for their good works? Or are they quietly working among us? Meet Swami Shuddhandanda Brahmachari, a living saint, who tries to keep a low profile. This eloquent "holy man" with the mindset of an economist, tells us the story of his journey and life's work in the villages and slums of Calcutta. Known as a "reluctant guru," Shuddhananda speaks candidly about the dangers of "guruhood," his unique approach to charitable work and the social transformation, which is taking place in the 700 villages he serves on an amazingly small budget. "I don't believe you need a lot of money to do good work. What you need is a vision and the spirit to do it." He believes that creating wealth in the minds of the poor as well as good health care can reverse poverty. (hosted by Michael Toms)
