America Meditating talks to Russell Simmons, business magnate co-founder of Def Jam Recordings.

Simmons talks about his life as a vegan and meditation enthusiast. He says that “in America, the discussion about yogic philosophy or yogic science has been growing consistently, and that wave of consciousness has propelled me for the last twenty years. He mentions Minister Louis Farrakhan as an inspiration, saying that “it took a really street type of organization to really reach out to the kind of ignorance that I operated from… that’s what the Nation of Islam has done for millions of African Americans.”
