On Practicing The Buddha’s Teachings – Feb 2nd 2014

February 2nd, 2014

Welcome to the first show of the year! Tonights Jason lectures on the writing, On Practicing The Buddha’s Teachings. His lecture is based on President Ikeda’s lectures series from The Teaching for Victory. Some of the theme for tonight include:

  • From provisional to true
  • How did Buddhism get so confused
  • Former, middle and latter day of the law
  • An accursed time
  • Changing our minds
  • The banner of our behaviour
  • Archers of the mystic law
  • Three carts and the burning house
  • Shakabuku, compassion and reason
  • Using struggles to become happy

We have an great and inspiring experience that covers 40 year of faith from Roxanne Rae in Oregan. We also have music from Nic Saunders who kindly allowed us to play a piece from his Weald and Downland Suite, its called The Water Mill. From the Podsafe Music Network we have Geoff Smith playing Gravity and Death Cab for Cutie with Title and Registration. Thank you so much for continuing to listen and support the show. Have an amazing week!

  5. Hi Karen and Jason, wonderful podcast! great to hear you and well done for your momentous move. So pleased to hear it’s working for you. Hope all went (is going) well in South Africa (where I moved from – to France – many years ago). A country which needs lots of chanting and healing. Mind you, don’t they all? Take care and keep going and growing and letting us knowing. Carol

  8. Dear Jason and Karen

    You are amazing!

    Since I’ve found your podcast whilst searching for something to read on repaying debts of gratitude I found your podcast! !

    And since then I’m completely hooked onto it. I’ve downloaded all your shows. Listened to Buddha Geoff and Me over 2 days couldn’t stop till I’d finished!
    I’ve got my headset on the train traveling to and from work, at the gym, whilst cooking, doing house work!
    Thank you thankyou thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you’re doing to make this possible.
    I’ve shared this with friends and other members from my group.
    It’s so easy to understand. You’ve made it so interesting.
    You both have lovely warm friendly voices.
    Thank you

  9. Hi Jason, hi Karen. I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the podcasts. I have been listening to the older ones and working my way up to the present. I am only in 2007 I think. Anyway you are both inspirational. Recently there has been much discussion about concentrating on bringing youth into the practice and I think your podcasts are one way. I hope to find and develop other strategies. Just wanted to say HI and thanks for all you do. Keep up the good work. Chanting and praying with you in the USA.

  11. Hello,
    I came across your podcast and became mesmerized with a sense of peace an assuredness about my life.
    I am only 3 weeks into the podcast but listen for 30 minutes as I drive to work and then 30 minutes home. I work in the operation groom and it has brought me a rod to hold onto as I ride the turbulence of the intensity of personalities and surgeries where we border on life and death with our patients.
    I look forward to your continued support and simplicity in sharing all I have studied for so many years.

  12. Hi Jason & Karen

    Thank you for your hard work in producing this podcast. I wonder if you would be able to invite people to be guests on the show? (Google Hangout or Skype)
    And I have not heard anything from you since your last podcast in February 2014, being too busy I guess?
    Hope to hear from you soon.
    Happy New Year 2015 🙂

  14. Hi Jason, I don’t know if you remember me, I used to be a MD District Leader in San Diego, CA. I have been listening to your show and recommending your show seems like forever. I am in Tennessee now and I have been asked to do a short presentation on Buddhism to a High School group. I was listening to this podcast (On Practicing The Buddha’s Teachings – Feb 2, 2014) and your short explanation of Buddhist history is perfect. I was wondering if you might share your notes with me? It would be a great help. I hope you and Karen are doing well. I miss your show. Peace – Michael
