I discovered this Russian philosopher a couple of days ago on YouTube and was amazed at some of the things he had to say.
Turns out he was pretty well known in Russia and many of his lectures are about Buddhism. Sadly, the lectures are in Russian and nobody bothered to add subtitles.
So if there's any one of you out there who can speak Russian, interested in hearing what Piatigorsky has to say, and then sharing a few key ideas with me and the community, he's/she's welcome.

Moist videos can be found under the Russian spelling of his name (пиатигорскй?, not sure).

    =) yeah, not of old Piatigorsky, though.

    OP, my computer's down so I don't have my Russky font, but Piat--igorskii would be spelled with 3 letters in Russian, not 4, if you see what I mean. Spelled like the first three letters of the word for "five". I'll take a look at those vids when I get the chance, thanks for the tip. They sound interesting.

    You're right, I think it's spelled пятигорский.

    Thank you, that's one of his few lectures in English.
    But even then, I can barely understand him.
    Love his style.
