A Buddhist Podcast - Introduction to The Talking Revolution

Podcast cover
Read more

Peace and goodwill to everyone! Tonight we have the introduction to a new book called the Talking Revolution written by two members of the SGI from the UK, Peter Osborn and Eddy Canfor-Dumas. Its an exciting book that has just been published on Amazon. It is a practical approach to communication. I think one of the biggest challenges in explaining Buddhism to the modern world is the need to explain how to apply it in the way we interact with ourselves and others. This book, although brief, will start a talking revolution. We are going to serialize the book in audio on this podcast over the next few weeks.

As an indulgence to how I felt when I was putting the show together, Jody Gnant was kind enough to give us permission to play Great Day again on the show.

In the second half of the show we have a recording of a Skype conversation between Jason and the two authors of The Talking Revolution. Let us know what you think about the sound quality as we are working on developing the content for a regular segment! Happy New Year!

A Buddhist Podcast - The Drum at the Gate of Thunder

Podcast cover
Read more

Tonights episode is the first of a few lectures on a letter Nichiren Daishonin wrote to Sennichi-Ama known as The Drum at the Gate of Thunder.

As the first lecture in some time, Jason talks about Buddhist study and goes into some depth on the background to this letter. He starts to explain some of the first passages and then, realizing he has run out of time, rather abruptly ends. Seriously, he has already started writing the next part! The podcast finishes with a wonderful song by the incredibly talented Jody Gnant, from the album Pivot, Great Day is one of Jasons all time favourite tracks! Check out her Jody's website!

Thank you so much for listening, have a wonderful week!

ABP – The Case for Buddhism – Negativity and Anger

Podcast cover
Read more

Well, this one might come as a surprise! After reading the news last week and thinking about the news of this week and next, I thought I would try and get a lead on it with two brilliant talks from William Woollard on Negativity and Anger. William reads from his book The Case For Buddhism

I felt both of these chapters would be a compliment to one another and something to hold in mind as we go through these turbulent times. To keep our spirits up, Robin Lukas sings "Smile" from her album Beyond Paradise Edge.

More coming soon! Have an amazing week.

ABP - The Case for Buddhism Chapter 5 - Ethics, some music and experiences

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to another episode of A Buddhist Podcast! Tonight William Woollard reads Chapter 5, Buddhism and Ethics from his book, The Case for Buddhism. Its a great chapter that I’ve learned a lot from. Williams use of accessible language makes this a great book to give people who know nothing about Buddhism.

We play a fun track by Robin Lukas called How are you? I love it! As soon as there is an official final version, we will post links here! After getting some emails from listeners with huge challenges I decided to talk about my experience of taking on challenges and lose grief to help me become a better person. So lots of voices tonight and a couple of experiences too. The artwork for the episode is the last picture I had taken with my uncle, Barry Brooks who recently passed away. Barry introduced me to this practice.

Thank you to everyone for your support. The show continues to evolve!

Lots to learn

I appreciate the sincerity of this show. I also appreciate the podcasts focus on Buddhism. Reading about Buddhism can be stultifying at times, and there is a humanness to this delivery that makes me take it in more. Thank you.

Amazing podcasts !
