About a month ago, Bianca Vlahos of Adelaide, Australia, became a vegan for a multitude of reasons. She researched the topic exhaustively and found several articles about aspects of vegetarianism on our website (See Spiritual Benefits of a Vegetarian Diet and Humans: Are We Carnivores or Vegetarians by Nature?) She is a radio announcer and producer at PBA-FM in Adelaide, and decided to contact Abbot George about doing a radio interview on the subject of the “connection between the Clarification of Morals & Ethics in relation to the food we eat.”
So a few days ago we arose before 3:00 a.m. to prepare for the Australian radio interview which was to be at 6:45 p.m. Australia time. Bianca was an excellent host, having prepared well for the topic, and the interview was a success, going over time because of the interest of the host and listeners. Because of continued interest, there will be a follow-up interview in a couple of weeks. Below you can listen to the interview.

“An extraordinary work of theological commentary, The Gospel of Thomas for Awakening is as informed and informative as it is inspired and inspiring. —James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review
“From the very beginning there were two Christianities.” So begins this remarkable work.
While the rest of the Apostles dispersed to various areas of the Mediterranean world, the apostle Thomas travelled to India, where growing evidence shows that Jesus spent his “Lost Years,” and which had been the source of the wisdom which he had brought to the “West.”
In The Gospel of Thomas for Awakening, Abbot George shines the “Light of the East” on the sometimes enigmatic sayings of Jesus recorded by his apostle Saint Thomas, revealing their unique and rich practical nature for modern day seekers for spiritual life.
Ideal for daily study or group discussion
The Reverend Gerry Nangle says: “The chapters are quite short, each based on one or two sayings, making them ideal for daily study and contemplation or suitable as material for group discussion. This book can be read once or twice for its rich factual content, or many times for the spiritual challenges it raises within the reader’s own mind and heart.”
While many books related to the Gospel of Thomas deal with historical or theological issues, Abbot George’s approach is remarkably practical, dealing with how Jesus’ words can be applied to make your life better and more spiritually rich. This is a must have book for spiritual aspirants, whatever their background.
Cheryl Bruedigman, Author of What If We Are the Angels? says: I am grateful to Burke’s efforts and to this book. It has supplied a missing link for me and filled in some of the gaping holes that popular Christianity does not fill. It has cleared the path in my struggle to understand much wisdom of the more difficult Hindu teachings. It helped to demonstrate the commonalities of both, and help me to reach a new height in my own personal understanding. I highly recommend this book. I will study it for years to come.
