Mogul Russell Simmons visited Houston’s Rice University On Thursday to discuss the virtues of spirituality presented in his new book, Super Rich: A Guide to Having it All.

Speaking to a crowd of approximately 200 students, he touched upon the upside of yoga meditation and how it can help someone reach higher levels of enlightenment. "Nobody is going to read my book and turn into a ball of light," Simmons explained, “but it will definitely help you be a better person."
