In a profile at The Sydney Morning Herald Herbie Hancock talks about his introduction to Buddhism, how his practice has informed his sense of purpose, and his latest undertaking The Imagine Project.
From the article:
He's a dapper man who generally looks 20 years younger than he is, but there's a weariness in his eyes and voice after hours banging the drum about a project he describes as his most difficult.
“I guess . . . it's a combination of my age and the practice of Buddhism. What I've learned is, in order for something to have value it has to in some way work towards serving humanity, otherwise it's self-serving and shallow and disruptive.”
