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!

Welcome to another episode of A Buddhist Podcast! Tonight William Woollard reads Chapter 4, Buddhism and the Problem Paradox from his book, The Case for Buddhism.

I chat for a while about my life and share a recent understanding I’ve developed about a writing from Nichiren to a disciple going through challenging times!

We play a wonderful track that matches my summer, Chianti and Olives by the amazing Robin Lukas. You can buy the track on Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby.

Feels great to post this, have a fantastic week and take care of the people around you. Thank you

Welcome to the first show of 2018. We start tonights show with a chapter from William Woollard’s book, The Case for Buddhism. It sits alongside chapter 3, a useful chapter about Nichiren Daishonin, the Buddha who’s teachings we follow. This is such a great book to give to friends and relatives who want to know more as it explains concepts in easy to understand english and is jargon free! I loved editing Chapter 4 and I hope you get as much out of it as I did.

We play two tracks from the wonderful Robin Lukas, Smile (Robins track) from her album Beyond Paradise Edge, and Walkin’ By Myself from her Album, Robin Lukas. Thank you for supporting the show and for putting a smile on my face Robin!

The show is going to evolve and change but not overnight! Have a wonderful week everyone. Thank you everyone for your support

A few weeks ago we had the good fortune of having William Woollard, Matt MacMillan and Karen and myself sat around our kitchen table. We read two lovely experiences about relationships with mothers, one from two sisters in India, Bipasha van der Zijde & Bishaka Dalvi. The other experience was from Kelvin Lam. We swapped stories and experiences and played music from the Podsafe music network including, Levi Blues by the Dala Girls, Mine Again by Black Lab and Yael Naim with New Soul. The editing took some time and I was able to get the file ready to the digital work on the plane to Brisbane, where when we land I hope to post online! Thank you very much everyone for the many birthday wishes you were kind enough to send and for all your good wishes about our forthcoming move to Vancouver. We are continuing to study hard and have started writing the lecture for the next show, so bear with us as we embark on the next crazy adventure. I think its about time we shared an experience of how we have done this, what do you think?

Its a terrific lecture and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it!
A good friend of the show sent us an email and Karen and Jason talk about their reactions and thoughts to it. During the editing, Jason wished he had said more about gratitude in his answer, but then that will be coming up in a lecture soon! Let us know what you think of this section, if its popular we might do some more!
We have music from the podsafe music network tonight. Firstly, we play David Ushers track, The Music, from his successful album Strange Birds. We close with a wonderful track from Adrina Thorpes album, Halflight and Shadows called Everything Changes.
