This podcast is pragmatic, secular and makes complicated Buddhist principles easy to understand.

Yeshe is a Buddhist monk. He is from England and teaches meditation, Buddhist philosophy and mindfulness.

Yeshe spent several years in a monastery in the foothills of the Himalayas teaching young monks basic Buddhist philosophy and meditation. He now offers teachings freely to all in a manner that is unpretentious and clear. He does not demand students to blindly accept what he says, but instead invites them to examine their own minds and experiences to discover the validity of Gautama Buddha’s teachings.

Yeshe quietly demonstrates Gautama Buddha’s teaching on compassion through the charitable trust ‘Sangye Menla’ that he founded in 2008 in Chandigarh, Northern India. The trust provides medical assistance and care to people from the Himalayan region in India.

    Sense Of Self - The Buddha Dharma Series

    Sense Of Self - The Buddha Dharma Series

    In Buddhism, one of the most difficult teachings for people to understand is anatman or non-self. The doctrine states that in humans there is no permanent entity that can be called a self or a soul. This denial of “any Soul or Self” is what distinguishes Buddhism from other major religions, such as Christianity and Hinduism, and gives Buddhism its uniqueness. This sense of being a permanent, solid, autonomous self is an illusion. The problem is this illusion is so ingrained into our ordinary experience. We have a sense of a permanent, individual self, but that is all it is, a sense, a feeling.

    Four Immeasurables: Open Hearted Joy - The Buddha Dharma Series

    Four Immeasurables: Open Hearted Joy - The Buddha Dharma Series

    The fourth immeasurable is open-hearted joy. What we are appreciating is the happiness someone else is experiencing. With this quality we feel real joy at their happiness. This practice is the perfect antidote for envy and it deals a killer blow to jealousy and pride.

    Happiness is fleeting, so to begrudge what little joy people can find in their lives is a very unkind quality. What we need to do is rejoice when happiness comes another’s way.

    Four Immeasurables: Compassion - The Buddha Dharma Series

    Four Immeasurables: Compassion - The Buddha Dharma Series

    Compassion is the third of the four immeasurables and it is an understanding that the world is full of suffering, and a heartfelt wish that this suffering will come to an end or at least lessen—for ourselves and others.

    Through compassion, the fact that everyone is suffering remains vivid in our minds. Everyone is suffering, so everyone deserves it. Keep in mind that compassion is for the person and not their behaviour. If we think like this, we will be able to cultivate compassion for all human beings.

    Four Immeasurables: Kind - Heartedness -The Buddha Dharma Series

    Four Immeasurables: Kind - Heartedness -The Buddha Dharma Series

    The second of the four immeasurables is kind-heartedness. This is not about how we feel, but about how we relate to these feelings. It invites us to drop our habitual patterns of reactivity and to free ourselves from emotional habits which serve neither ourselves nor anyone else.

    Sometimes our goodwill only covers people that are useful, pleasing or amusing to us. This is not how we should divide groups of people; we have to see people through the eyes of kindness. We must open our hearts to everyone. Not every thought radiates kindness to others, so how can we cultivate kind-heartedness? A great place to start is by listening to this podcast and doing the meditation.

    Four Immeasurables: Equanimity - The Buddha Dharma Series

    Four Immeasurables: Equanimity - The Buddha Dharma Series

    When we look at the world, we can clearly see how hard it is to attain a balanced mind, as we are continuously in a flux of rises and falls. These lift us up one moment and fling us down the next. This is true for everyone; we are all the same. So, if that is the case, why do we discriminate against others? We are all in the same boat, all trying our best to ride the same waves of life.

    Equanimity is where we do not distinguish between our friends, the people we dislike or strangers, but regard everyone as equal. What we are trying to do here is remove the boundaries between ourselves and others by discarding our discriminations.

    Eight Worldly Concerns - The Buddha Dharma Series

    Eight Worldly Concerns - The Buddha Dharma Series

    We all have concerns and this is just part of being human. But there are eight concerns that bring us unnecessary suffering because we become attached to them or are adverse to them.

    The ones we call desirable are gain, status, praise and pleasure. The four we call undesirables being loss, insignificance, blame and pain. It doesn’t matter if we see them as desirable or undesirable, they are all ultimately causes of our suffering.

Clockymanfishy ,

Only podcast I listen to everyday without fail

Thank you so much Yeshe. There were so many other Buddhism guide podcasts but yours easily stood out amongst them all. Your gentle soothing voice, the simple and direct messages, your wise delivery, the relaxing pace of your speech... This all made your teachings even more powerful. I've been recommending you to many of my friends, if you're ever feeling discouraged, please know how much impact you have on me every single time I listen to your teachings. Thank you, much love and light.
