    Launch of The Buddhist Vision and the Dhammapada

    Launch of The Buddhist Vision and the Dhammapada

    Here is a recently re-discovered little lost delight - Sangharakshita and Subhuti launching each other's books and clearly enjoying themselves. Sangharakshita's in fine humour - and it's great to hear him read and quote from the bible! Is that a twinkle in his voice? 
    Talk given at Triratna [FWBO] Day celebrations in 2001.

    Kasyapa and the Flower

    Kasyapa and the Flower

    In a striking and inspiring talk, Paramananda tells the life story of the Buddha's disciple Kasyapa: the Buddha uniquely said that Kasyapa would have gained enlightenment even without his help. The crescendo is a mysterious transmission when the Buddha held up a lotus and Kasyapa smiled, regarded by Zen Buddhists as the start of their lineage. Paramananda discusses what 'transmission' could mean for us. This talk was given at West London Buddhist Centre, 2017.

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.

Spit lord emperor of saliva.

Can we get less slop and slurp in the microphone for gods sake. Its impossible for this man to pronounce a syllable without slurping.

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.
