For those of you who are familiar with William Woollards excellent book, The Reluctant Buddhist, and have been listening along on the podcast, you will have noticed something. The experiences from Chapters 5 and 6 were missing. This is because William really wanted to have someone else read them, and that someone tonight is the wonderfully warm and loving person that is his wife, Sarah.

So reading The Story of Joanna from Chapter 6 and The Story of Sally from Chapter 5 of The Reluctant Buddhist is Sarah Woollard.

Then we have music from Heather Sullivan. She sings Stronger from the Podsafe Music Network. Stronger is from her album Bound on ITunes.

We find out what happened to Jason this month, we have shout outs from around the globe and we read a letter from an SGI member, Frank Ametefe in Ghana, Africa. Jason made an error in attributing the poem Karen reads, to Marian Wilson, when in fact it is Marian Williamson. If we have offended anyone, please accept our most sincere apologies.

We finish with another track from the Podsafe Music Network by Angelique Kidjo called Gimme Shelter featuring Joss Stone. And you can find this track on her album Djin Djin on ITunes.

We have some great shows lined up for you and are so excited about all the different developments that are happening. Look at for a new look to the website that is coming soon and also for a new colour of our t-shirts, Stone Blue! If you are looking for the tshirts you can get them from our tshirt shop which is generously powered by the wonderful

Thank you so much for your constant support and encouragement. Have a truly wonderful week!

We have been working on tonights show for a long time. SGI-UK asked us to help them put a show together about their view of the spirit of study within SGI-UK.
Subjects include:

  • A brief explanation about Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism
  • An explanation about SGI-UK’s Study program
  • A dialogue on going through the study program
  • Experiences from new members and old about taking the study exam.

Finally we have some shoutouts and some great music from the one and only Cat Malojian. On tonights show we play Made in America from Cat Malojians new album, The Dawn Chorus.
Thank you to everyone who made tonights show possible including everyone who chanted for Jason to get well enough to leave hospital. Both Karen and I are sincerely grateful! Have a truly fantastic week!
