Summary:Huston Smith explains how the intertwining of opposites is key to understanding the great religions of China: Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. He focuses on Confucianism, and explains that Eastern religions provide "an emphasis on direct experience and a method for attaining that." He contrasts this with Western Christianity, and discusses important aspects of his own life. Includes a special video introduction by Bill Moyers.
