A Buddhist Podcast – Eileens Lecture

November 28th, 2006

Welcome to tonights show!
Tonights lecture is called, The Vow and it is given by our guest lecturer Eileen Beckmann! The women of the SGI are so incredible! I really hope this is the start of many lectures! We are so grateful to Eileen, thank you so much.
Music tonights is from Geoff Smith and Matthew Ebel. Geoff sings Some Christmas Hugging which you can find at either thegeoffsmith.com or music.podshow.com. Matthew Ebel sings a song that definitely rips at your heart, Tennessee Never Cried and you can find Matthews music at music.podshow.com.
Recent developments and improvements at Podshow mean that you can now support these artists by buying the tracks if you like the music!
We’ve got shout outs from all over and a great experience from Andre de Wit from the Netherlands.
The cover art for tonights show is a photograph taken of Karen and I at PodcastconUK by  our great friend CC Chapman, the grand meister flash of Managing the Gray, Accident Hash and U-Turn Cafe.


  1. Thanks for reading out my experience, guys! I just hope that it will inspire others not to give up. Ever! Keep up the good work. Let’s really sread Kosen-Rufu.

  2. I ‘ve just finished listening to the podcast and am struck by the courage Eileen and Andre demonstrate. It is really inspiring. Life is like a roller coaster ride: sometimes we’re up and sometimes we’re down. It’s helpful to hear how people handle their ups and downs and how their practise informs their lives. Great music, too.

  3. Hi Jason…

    It was good to meet you at Trets. Well done with the podcasts! I’m forwarding the link to my local sgi contacts.

    I wonder if you’d care to have a look at the ‘buddhism’ page of my website, which is linked above – it’s an attempt to explain the basic principles of our buddhism in everyday language, and I’m very interested to get feedback etc.

    best wishes

    PS I’m also thinking of doing a podcast and wonder if you can point me to any generic info on how to go about it… ta!
