A very merry christmas to you! This last weekend we recorded tonights lecture in the kitchen of the amazing Jackie Evans from Gower and Swansea West District in West Wales. We had a wonderful welcome and met some great people! On our return we finished the show and are delighted to bring you tonight, a lecture on Nichiren Daishonin’s writing, Letter from Sado.
The lecture is quite long and was recorded very late at night, so you might want to listen to it in parts! Subjects include:
Time is the biggest contribution we can make
I solemnly swear that I want to do good
Temples were an investment
The loss of each individual life matters
Clinging on to life
An ungrudging spirit
Use problems to become happy
Earnest resolve
Refuting mistaken teachings
Doing the right thing
The heart of a lion king
We play two tracks from the Podsafe Music Network, Panacea by Bill and Merry Christmas Angel by the wonderful Vittoria Conn.
Thank you so much for your continued support of the show, we really are very grateful.
Have a truly wonderful new year!
