Welcome to a different kind of show. In response to a number of listener requests we have put together the Summer Spesh, a show that brings together some of the listeners favourite music from previous shows, some inspirational quotes, some poetry and an interview between Peter Osborne and Eddy Canfor-Dumas, the author of The Buddha, Geoff and Me. Music from tonights show includes:

Vittoria Conn singing Mirror

Building Our Own Future by Howard Jones
Bill singing Panacea
Eoghan Colgan with Planetary Woman
Selsted Church of England Primary School with Save Our School
Supersuckers with Some People Say
Matthew Ebel singing Drive Away

All the music from tonights show is from the Podsafe Music Network.
We will be back in a couple of weeks with a a lecture on The Persecution at Tatsunokuchi Gosho. Next week is episode 4 of The Buddha, Geoff and Me. Thank you for listening!
If you have a question or an experience you would like to send us, write to karen(at)thejarretts.com or jason(at)thejarretts.com
If you get a moment, and you would like to, it really does help spread the word if you could write us a review on ITunes. Have a great week!


  1. Hi,

    I just happened across your site. I think you might enjoy seeing my site, since it’s primarily Buddhist inspired. It’s called Isle of View. net. It sounds like “I love you.” It’s visual images & acronym insights, like:
    J.O.Y. – Just Open Yourself. There’s also a free database to give everyone their own personal acronym. Example: JASON – Just Awaken Sweet Openness Now. Please check it out. Thanks, Russell McDougal

  2. Great show, guys! Such a good summertime concept. The music and inspiring quotes will make for hours of fun listening in the car.

    As always, the sound quality makes for really enjoyable listening.

    Also, thank you for explaining “podsafe music” in depth. To the uninitiated, it could mean “won’t melt your earbuds.”

    All the best,
    Donna in Sacramento

  3. Hello Jarretts! Great show. And thank you for the story as well!
    Thank you again for your podcast. I’ve recommended it to quite a few people who find it really really helpful. Our district is struggling a bit and while we are working on it, I’ve encouraged some of the newer members to listen in on your podcast to hear more about the practice and they have found it very inspirational.
    If you are looking for future topics, maybe could you cover what the gohonzon says? I look at it every day for hours and I don’t really know what it says. It’s not just a pretty picture. It says something! I’ve downloaded info from the website, but it’s slow going.
    Thank you so much for your efforts.

  4. Hi Jason, well done on this concept of yours.

    It’s so refreshing as it complements the existing activities and it’s something personal that members can listen to at their own time.

    It’s having an impact amongst members and friends practicing here in Australia and Singapore.

    Keep up the good work of “the voice does the Buddha’s work.”
