Description

Huston Smith’s The World’s Religions, a best-seller since 1959, has been translated into 14 languages. Thomas Moore calls the scholar “the world’s ambassador to religions everywhere, a man of passionate intellect and immense heart.” Smith is also a pilgrim who experiences the religions that he studies. He remains a Methodist but practices yoga, prays five times daily as Muslims do, has endured the rigors of a Zen monastery, and joined his daughter and her Jewish husband in observing the Sabbath and the Seder. In the first four programs Smith talks with Moyers about his experiences with the world’s great religions. In the final episode, Smith discusses his philosophy of religion, born of both his scholarship and his faith, and shows how all “wisdom traditions” share fundamental truths. The DVD version of this series also includes a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers. 5-part series, 56-57 minutes each.
