We have some very exciting news that we are going to tell you about on the next podcast! Speaking of which, we will be interviewing the author of the book, “The Buddha, Geoff and Me”, Eddy Canfor-Dumas on the next show. If you have any questions you would like us to ask Eddy, please send them to jason@thejarretts.com by the 4th July and we will do our best to make sure we get them in!

Burning to tell you the news!

On another note, Casey and Quinn are getting married this weekend, so we send our sincere daimoku for their happiness! Maybe we should do a show on the Buddhist view of marriage, what do you think?

Welcome to tonights show! Tonights lectures is about overcoming the negativity that rises up whenever we want to change the direction of our lives.
Some soundbites…
1. Are you the protagonist or are you in the audience?
2. Problems are the exercise for our spiritual life
3. A pile of obstacles!
4. You are gorgeous, but I need to do Gongyo first!
5. A pile of devils!
6. So what did Nichiren do about problems?
7. What happens when the disciples stand up?
8. An axiom of faith to be passed on not hidden.
9. Thats what friends are for!

It is a long show and we pull no punches about challenging the negativity that meets us fist for fist when we want to create change in our lives and
the world around us!
Picking the music for tonights show was a challenge too! Our great friend Vittoria Conn is preparing a final release mix for her new song Turnaround but we werent able to get to it in time for the recording! Never mind! We’ll do our best to get it to you next time! However, we have some really appropriate music from the Podsafe Music Network. We play ‘I would Love’ by Lee Coulter and ‘Into the Groove’ from the one and only Ziggy Marley!
Lots of shoutouts across the world tonight! Taplow Court Open Days and Live Arts Festival 2007 are upon us, Sundays from 27 May – 29 July, plus National Heritage Day on the 9th September. Its open from 2pm to 5.30pm and there is a wonderful exhibition – The Happiest Days of Their Lives? – Children through the Ages at Taplow and Beyond. Admission Free.
