On Friday, 20 September 2013, I was invited to appear on CNBC’sPower Lunch on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (you can watch it at: http://www.cnbc.com/id/101051478).

Near the end of the program, I guided almost 10 seconds of silent meditation.  Put that in context, my friends: Almost 10 seconds of silent air time, on live television, on CNBC, at the New York Stock Exchange.  I suspect I may be the only person ever to pull that off.

I think this almost ranks among the coolest things I have ever done, almost up there with speaking at the UN and the White House, being on the front page of the New York Times, meeting world leaders, getting hugs from the Dalai Lama, and eating dinner with Jimmy Carter.
