Russell Simmons will be featured in an extensive article in the November 5, 2012 issue of Forbes Life. Here's an excerpt:
"The Bhagavad Gita and yoga sutra texts on his bedside table are believably well-worn. Simmons meditates cross-legged on his bed for 20 minutes each morning. He’s on the board of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.
He has some big-time fans. 'Russell is naturally able to have great insight into life,' says Donald Trump, who has worked with him closely on various charity projects. Says Bob Roth, executive director of Lynch’s foundation, 'He is the leading voice in the world for a younger generation that is basically devoid of role models and leadership when it comes to the importance of kindness, compassion, interreligious harmony, and interracial harmony.' Roth meets monthly with Simmons to work with him on meditation and credits him with getting Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and Ellen DeGeneres hooked on it as well."
