    What the World Needs Now: Triratna's Gift

    Mind is the most remarkable thing in the universe, it is the greatest treasure. We’re still discovering the mysteries of the human mind. Buddhism says again and again, what you think and what you do matters. Everything you do matters.

    Live from Buddhistisches Tor Berlin, Maitreyabandhu unfolds the theme of What the World Needs Now on a day celebrating our Dharma community's contribution to the world. Triratna Day, April, 2022.

    After the Enlightenment: The Bliss of Emancipation

    After the Enlightenment: The Bliss of Emancipation

    Parami focuses on the significance of the seven weeks after the Buddha’s enlightenment and draws out the relevance for us today. When we experience the freedom from something that has held us back the energy that is released is extraordinary and requires time for absorption.
    This talk was given on Buddha Day at North London Buddhist Centre, May 2018.

    The Star of Healing: Illuminating Awareness

    The Star of Healing: Illuminating Awareness

    In a talk for Buddha day, Ratnaprabha takes us through the realisations that came to the Buddha during his all night meditation under the Bodhi tree, culminating in the vision of the morning star, the Star of Healing. Its light was the first sight of the Awakened One, a light symbolising the illumination of awareness itself.
    Talk given at the West London Buddhist Centre, 2014.

All episodes restored

Hi Pixel5by5. Sorry to hear you lost access to old episodes of the podcast! It's not that we changed things just for the sake of it - we had to in relation to issues with our podcast provider and a need to separate out the two feeds for our two podcasts. We can see that witin iTunes access does indeed seem to be limited to the last 300 episodes. However, all are accessible under ‘See all episodes’ within the iOS version of Apple’s Podcast app - and in other podcast apps. We'll look into the iTunes-specific issues but, for now, would recommend using another app to listen.

Impermanence sure, but argh! Where are the eps?

I absolutely adore this podcast, but someone just got the bright idea to “update” it, and killed 164 episodes worth that I had saved to my phone, that I listen to with regularity. I lost classic dharma teachings like “We have wine, but no cups” that repeatedly made me laugh, inspired me, made me think deeply, produced real moments of insight, and gave me comfort in hard times. I appreciate all these new eps, but why on the Buddha’s green Earth would you delete all the others going back as far as 2010? Please bring them back from oblivion! I was using them for mind training in the spiritual desert that is Los Angeles. Also, please give us full talks, not a mere 3-15 minutes of mostly intro & outro music. I used to sit & listen to multiple long talks & it was a source of sustained bliss. In fact, if you would like to earn money for the sangha, sell full talks or series of talks we can buy and own permanently on iTunes.

Linsey! ,
