In this podcast, we will explore the reasons why a sage leaves society and the benefits of becoming a hermit. Being a recluse is an intrinsic way of life in the great Eastern spiritual traditions. We’ve had countless yogis, sadhus, and sages, which is best illustrated with how Lao-tzu left the world to return to nature. Typically, in the modern world, people condemn such action because of the belief that we should all contribute and be part of a society that, as Jiddu Krishnamurti said, is profoundly sick. Why do we defend such a society? Why do we believe our contribution is necessary if the society itself is something we have no faith in? What will we learn about ourselves if we are radical enough to become a recluse and follow the path of the hermit sages? Find out!
