Notes:  Interview Date: 8/26/1992 "This interview is a snapshot of the lively ongoing thought processes of a renowned scholar of world religions. It clearly illustrates how his own spiritual vision has expanded--and likewise his classic reference treatise on world religions. He describes his discovery of Tibetan Buddhism, and his personal meeting with the Dalai Lama. He discusses the Supreme Court decision against the Native American use of peyote, and the importance of maintaining respect for the sacraments of all religions. He also updates us on his own excitement and puzzlements about new developments in science and spirituality. It's a fascinating experience to observe the development of the thought and work of this respected writer and thinker. (hosted by Michael Toms)"
