Huston Smith: The Primordial Tradition (excerpt) – Thinking Allowed w/ Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from a 30-minute DVD.

Huston Smith, Ph.D., author of Forgotten Truth, delineates the common threads that run through spiritual traditions of all cultures.

Similarly, the notions of the soul and spirit persist regardless of their lack of relevance to a modern, materialist world view.
