Editorial Reviews

Eastern Mystics is a 4-Disc DVD set containing a series of engaging interviews with Dr. Huston Smith and mystics from the Buddhist, Hindu, Advaita and Taoist traditions. The mystics address profound questions about the meaning of life and love, Ultimate Reality, the path to spiritual awakening, and the way to true peace in the world. They encourage us to look beyond our apparent differences, to realize the one truth that unites us all, and most importantly, to manifest that truth in our daily lives. They offer us the opportunity to become part of the movement to bring peace and harmony to our own lives and to the world in which we live. They exhort us to discover "The Sacred Ordinary."

Format: DVD
This set of four beautifully produced DVDs offers a deep and timely message for everyone who is currently practicing, searching for a spiritual path, or simply interested in comparative religion. It is a precious and surprisingly rare opportunity to be able to listen to recognized masters from different spiritual traditions explain the nature of their practice and discuss how it has changed their lives. We live in time when bloody conflicts over perceived ownership of spiritual truth are all too common. The distinctions drawn between believer and heretic, saved and lost, too often become battle lines. As distances shrink and interdependence with other cultures grows commonplace, a more tolerant view of religious beliefs is critically needed. These DVDs give us an important and persuasive rebuttal for such narrow thinking, while giving confidence and encouragement to those interested in pursuing a mystical path themselves.

I am so sorry that I spent money on these DVDs. They are thoroughly disappointing. I was so excited to think that I would have something that I could watch, enjoy, and learn from for endless hours of replaying. Instead it was almost impossible to sit through any one piece of this video melange. The lecture format is horrible. A talking head answers questions that are flashed on the screen in written form for a few seconds. The content of the responses is not good, is not particularly educational and it would be surpassed by simply going to any of the topics and searching on google for free video on the Internet. My impression is that this set is an opportunistic project to make money with as little real work or effort designing and creating the videos as possible. I cannot believe, given how precious our money is right now, that I blew so much on this set. I could have bought so much more and learned so much more. It makes me sad that other people who do not have great deals of money to waste would make the same mistake that I did.

This series stirred lots of things for me and was fascinating to hear the paths talked about so deeply. Huston Smith is wonderful and old and frail with deep innocence and wisdom. There are truly realized teachers and they are not here...they are talked about here, and are felt and honored here. So a listener sparked by these discussions can go further towards a master or path discussed here.

"Eastern Mystics" is an extraordinary set of four DVDs containing the full-length interviews with the mystics featured in the award-winning "With One Voice" documentary, as well as an added interview with world renown religion scholar Huston Smith. We also meet for the first time the documentary's producer and interviewer, Matt Flickstein, who personally introduces each of the mystics. Extraordinary interviews with extraordinary mystics and scholars of Eastern spiritual traditions.

An remarkable opportunity to sit and hear in depth what these teacher's individual experiences were, what their paths have been like and how their traditions point to peace, both inner and outer. To experience these different traditions at the deepest level in one place is an amazing gift. In this time in our country and our world, these messages need to be heard by all.
