East Meets West Part 1


East Meets West Part 2


Please join us for a special evening with two truly extraordinary individuals. On Tuesday, April 19, two worlds beautifully collide as Dr. Cornel West (Class of 1943 Professor at Princeton University and acclaimed author and speaker) and His Holiness Radhanath Swami (Bhakti Yoga master, director of the Radha-Gopinath Ashram, and acclaimed author and speaker) sit down together and share their thoughts on the Divine, the mysteries of love, and the role that spirituality plays in activism. Deeply heartfelt and soulful, they will each discuss personal transformation, by drawing upon their own amazing journeys and candidly sharing the lessons they learned along the way. A Q&A session will follow the dialogue, and a reception will follow.


The Richardson Auditorium Box Office will be open at 5:30pm. Theater doors open at 7:00pm. The program begins promptly at 7:30pm. In accordance with auditorium policy, the doors will be closed once the program has started and ushers may refuse entry to guests who are late. We strongly encourage you to arrive early; if you are traveling from off-campus, please factor in time required for traffic and parking concerns. Seating will take place on a first come/first serve basis, and every effort will be made to accommodate guests with special needs. Please be aware that because of the restrictions of the venue, this program may not be suitable for young children or children who are unable to remain seated quietly for an extended period of time.

Please note that we cannot guarantee availability of tickets for the day of the event. 


East Meets West will be held in Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall. Richardson Auditorium is Princeton University’s premiere performance venue for a wide variety of events presented by the Department of Music, as well as student and community organizations. Richardson is also home to the annual Princeton University Concerts series, featuring world-class professional musical artists. In addition, the hall is often used for the recording of chamber, orchestral, and solo instrumental and vocal music, and is the site of many official University ceremonies, lectures, and assemblies, from Freshman Orientation to Reunions activities. It is housed in Alexander Hall, one of the most historic and recognizable structures on the Princeton campus. For more information, including directions and parking information, please visit the Richardson Auditorium website.
