The wisdom of faith with Huston Smith

In an extended interview with Moyers, Huston Smith explores the six great world religions and his experiences with them. In the Hinduism and Buddhism of India, he examines art as a spiritual technology, and uncovers the multiphonic chanting of lamas in Tibet. Confucianism in China emphasizes social relations with empathy as the key to enlightenment; while Christianity and Judaism show how the truths of an ethnic religion can break out into a world religion. With Islam, he examines the misunderstood concept of submission to Allah; and, in the final program, he blends the ideas of his lifetime of experience and study to distill what he has discovered of the wisdom of the human race.
