    143 - Eye Of The Beholder

    143 - Eye Of The Beholder

    In this episode, I will talk about perception and the role it plays in how we experience our reality. Reality is in the eye of the beholder. “Dependent on the eye and forms, eye-consciousness arises...The meeting of the three is contact.”
    With contact as a requisite condition, there is feeling. What one feels, one perceives. What one perceives, one thinks about.

    142 - Wisdom and Fear

    "Some see something to fear where there is nothing to fear, and some see nothing to fear where there is something to fear." In this episode, I will talk about fear from a Buddhist perspective. Fear is universal but there are perhaps some fears that are skillful and others that are unskilful.

Fantastic Buddhist Podcast

After just the initial five episodes, I already love this podcast. Noah succeeds in presenting authentic Buddhist dharma stripped from its esoteric religious aura. I am Buddhist student in the Shambhala tradition of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and I am convinced that he would give it also at least 4 stars. Noah’s exposition is very clear and easy to follow, yet very profound and impactful. Thank you for this podcast Noah.

Best podcast ever

After 64 episodes I finally give my ratings. Thanks to Noah and his easy way of explaining Buddhism through a secular approach I can officially say I became a Buddhist and my life and view of the world literally changed. Thanks Noah!
