A Buddhist Podcast – The Reluctant Buddhist – Chapter 6

July 5th, 2009

Well tonight we have truly great explanation of the Buddhist concept known as the Ten Worlds as William Woollard reads Chapter 6 from The Reluctant Buddhist! We have music from the Podsafe Music Network tonight with Lee Coulter playing Booty Voodoo and Rocky Votolato with White Daisy Passing. More shoutouts from across the globe and chipper conversation from Jason and Karen who, at home in England are enjoying the wonderful summer! Thank you for listening and thank you so much for your encouragement. Have a fantastic week!


  1. William makes the 10 worlds simple to understand. Thanks for this. Loved the music tonight. Nice to hear Florence’s introduction. Hope to hear more of her.

  2. Yes! Yes! Come back to Sacramento this year! 😀 *waving ‘hello’ frantically*

    Florence sounds like such a strong youth already, let’s hear more of her. Loved the white daisies song. So happy to hear the next chapter from William; perfect timing, as I’m training two potential new members and both are struggling with the concept of the 10 Worlds–Willliam’s explanation is SO accessible.

    Congratulations to Ian and David for receiving their Gohonzons!

  5. I happen to be reading this book now, so to have it read aloud by the author was thrilling , plus this particular chapter was one that I needed to have read to me. Somehow by following along, I understood the concept like never before. Thank you so much for this site.

  6. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Joanna for her experience. A must listen for anyone who has ever experienced a loss. Thank you to William Wollard for including it on his book, to Sarah for reading it and to Jason and Karen for including it on the podcast.

  7. Thanks for the podcast, the site and your continued support to help others in their lives of enlightenment. Being new to buddism, I am enjoying the wisdom and knowledge shared by everyone in the buddhist community in the place called earth here in the universe. Thanks for this chapter, the 10 states. I have come to reflect why my life was always in turmoil, anger and chaos. When you know how to live in three states, you are pretty much not looking to change your life anytime soon. This chapter has helped convince me, life doesn’t cease to exist, buddhism just gives you extra to add to your already existing life, no more or no less. Thank you kindly. Take care.
