A Buddhist Podcast – Reply to Sairen-bo

September 21st, 2008

Tonights show is a lecture on Nichiren Daishonin’s letter called ‘Reply to Sairen-bo’.The theme is once more on the mentor disciple relationship . Themes include:

  • Trapped for 3 score years and 10
  • The disciple chooses the mentor
  • What is Buddhahood?
  • Devil kings and demons
  • I don’t want to spend my life in the toilet of mankind
  • What qualifies the mentor?
  • Creating a whirlpool of joy.

In honour of 25 years playing music, we play, from the Podsafe Music NetworkHoward Jones and his song Building our own Future. We are also lucky enough to have a great track from Peter Robinson called Roar of the Wind for the men of the South of England.Originally we had planned to play the second half of William Woollards Chapter 1 tonight. However, we wanted to include an interview that we are working on but we did not manage to get it done in time! So the next show will include the second half!Thank you for listening and for your encouragement comments and kind emails. Your support is really welcomed, have a great week.

  1. Jason and Karen,

    Fantastic job tonight! I happen to check your site tonight hoping that you had found the time to post another show and *poof* fortune rains down on we your dedicated listeners!

    As usual you have given us the gift of wisdom, as well as brightened our day (or nightly dish-washing ritual) with some wonderful music and of course, Karen’s magical shout-outs. You touched on some things tonight that I have been considering ranting a bit about on my site (the demons in particular), and it was all wonderfully inspiring!

    I hope the entire Jarrett family creates a wonderful week, and as usual, the Williams family in Northfield, Connecticut sends their warmest greetings!
