Welcome to episode 28, A Sound Within, featuring Buddhist musician, poet, translator, and world traveler, Louise Landes Levi. She has translated renowned mystic writers such as Mirabai, René Daumal, and Henri Michaux. She's released over a dozen books of her own poetry, like Guru Punk and The Book L. Having studied with Annapurna Devi, Ali Akbar Khan, La Monte Young and others, Levi is a skilled sarangi player in the North Indian tradition. Now in her 70s, she continues releasing more music than ever before. And always her work has been guided by spiritual discipline, most notably in the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition, studying directly with Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. Through this episode we'll pass through 1960s psychedelia, North Indian raga, Tibetan Buddhism, and more. Welcome to the Sacred Conversation.
