In this podcast, we will explain how Eastern spirituality and Western psychology understand the “I,” the persona. Both have completely different perspectives of the individual based on their diametrically opposed cultural and religious worldviews. These differences are extremely important for understanding how to overcome suffering. One path provides a way of dealing with our suffering within the social and cultural boundaries we find ourselves in and the other questions these boundaries by suggesting the society and culture themselves create suffering and cannot be alleviated by conforming to the indoctrination that caused suffering in the first place.
