Thanks, I just wanted a quick overview of the perceived importance if Saturn in human life, and ur 20-min Saturn episode was perfect. Listening to that episode for 20m on an overcast Saturday at 30years old - perfect :)

Well done, the most coherent podcast on Vedic Mythology around!
Edv108 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/26/14
this is so much fun to listen to. It's usually really hard to really get into stories in a foreign language because either you miss out on a lot because you have to use a translation, or you just don't understand what's happening. He does a great job of giving you both at once

Hello Ben, I have been hearing the podcast for quite some time. The effort put in making the podcast and the result are both laudable.

If you are Hindu personally or take an interest in Hinduism and the Vedic traditions, this podcast is worth checking out. I found it to be a charming guide to the tales of the Vedas and to the sounds of Hindu religious practices.

KayJog via Apple Podcasts · India · 10/02/11
I find these podcasts very divine & informative. The mantra chanting & music is very soul-lifting. Continue the good work. Be blessed.
Henry-James via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/11
Wonderful. Never thought that such a deep understanding can ever be found in the West about the ancient Indian scripts. Modern India & Indians should listen to this.
PNayak via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/04/11
Though raised as a Hindu, I learnt more about Vedic mythology through this podcast. Well researched. One minor suggestion would be if the Vedic character names were pronouced as they should be.

In my personal opinion, this is one of the best podcasts on this subject. Greatly informative.

To deliver the essence of Hindu mythology with tastefully presented snippets in an enchanting tone of voice free to listeners is nothing short of a yeoman service. Makes my commute to work a little more enjoyable and helps me start my day with a smile.

Ben Collins has a beautiful voice which radiates compassion and wisdom. The podcasts are thoughtful and professional, and he obviously has a deep knowledge of the Vedas. I would also recommend his Jyotish Conversations podcasts.
Bhagavati via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/15/09
I really enjoy listening to this podcast - the stories are enlightening and uplifting, presented with humor and humility. The mantras portion is filled with many hard-to-find recordings of Vedic mantras. Great job, Ben and looking forward to new episodes.
Nocturne09 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/09
