Kunal Nayyar: Staying Present & Knowing Yourself

Mayim's reunion with Big Bang Theory co-star explores Kunal's childhood and path to becoming an actor - including getting punched in the face by Mark Harmon on NCIS. While Kunal is known for his acting, his instagram account Buddha in Jeans shares deep spiritual wisdom which Kunal brings with him to this episode. He discusses the importance of seeing past perception and shares how his experiences of anxiety and debilitating panic attacks led him to hypnotherapy and a modern day path of self-discovery.

Theme Song Written, Produced, and Performed by Ed Robertson. Mixed by Kenny Luong.

Having A Roommate Taught Me Self-Love
My roommate taught me how to love myself, how to cohabitate, and how to be alone. As you can tell by my hair, this video was filmed a while ago. Since then, my roommate Jeff has since moved into his own place—it was time. Yes, it was sad, but it was always part of his plan, and I'm so happy for him! I'm glad for the time Jeff spent living with me, and for everything he taught me.
