The Podcasts

Tonights show is so full! Tonights lectures is based on guidance that President Ikeda gave earlier this year about the four points for victory. The four points are Prayer, Action, Unity and the Oneness of Mentor and Disciple. This lecture is about the second theme, Action! The main points of the lecture include: Developing our own individual attitude to faith Taking responsibility for the happiness of where we live The roar of the tiger of death Take the initiative and make new friends We reveal buddhahood in our behaviour The old man in the park What is the Buddha's great teaching? Living with my mentor Three powerful enemies If not you then who? We have a poem from Rabindranath Tagore called The Stream of Life. The music to accompany this poem is the Indian National Anthem, the words of which were also written by Rabindranath Tagore. We have a question, and a lot of shoutouts from around the world. We have music, courtesy of Promonet tonight! We have Be the Change from the album Elephant Power by MC Yogi. We also have Atlas from the album Arabesque by Belly Dance which you can buy here at ITunes! We are proud members of the Ioda Alliance! We would also like to express our thanks to Anji Bee for her help in finding music for this show. Anji has a great podcast and we are both big fans of her band the Love Spirals.

Have you ever wanted an explanation of where this Buddhism came from to give to your friends or family to help explain your practice? Well that is what the substance of tonights show is! William Woollard reads Chapter 3 from his extraordinary book, The Reluctant Buddhist! We have shoutouts and the music tonight comes from Beth Thornley. Its not like us to only play one artist, but we liked both of the tracks! So from Beth Thornley we play Mr Lovely and Birmingham. As usual we are very grateful to the Podsafe Music Network for providing us with the ability to play this music on our show. We are working on two new shows which will be appearing in the next few weeks! Thank you so much for listening to the show and for all your wonderful feedback. Have a great week and take care of yourselves and the people around you.
