Mindrolling – Ep. 137 – Roadside Assistance with Rabbi Rami

Roadside Assistant

Rabbi Rami Shapiro joins Raghu and David and gives us a little roadside assistance for our spiritual journey.

Rabbi Rami certainly reflects the Mindroller’s central theme which is Neem Karoli Baba’s edict of “All One” – there is only One emanation of the Divine.

Rabbi Rami says, “To me, religions are like languages – no language is true or false: all languages are of human origin – each language reflects and shapes the civilization that speaks it. Judaism is my Mother tongue, yet in matters of the spirit I strive to be multilingual.”

He explores his realizations sitting Zazen and awakening to grace.

The Mindrollers have a lively back-and-forth with the Rabbi around the idea of the Jewish uniqueness of being at home with paradox. Argument and doubt are central themes of the Jewish mystical tradition.
