    In this episode we give the down low on the Dalai Lama.. a little bit of his history and such.  We more poignantly highlight his views on meditation as a rehearsal for enlightenment.  We discuss the idea of a sudden vs a gradual approach to enlightenment, self-improvement and other forms of realization.  We create a new term... SHENGASM! and talk about love as a tool to connect to the Supreme Source.

    Hardware v Software; Round 2

    Hardware v Software; Round 2

    In this episode we continue our debate and discussion on the notion of human existence being viewed as a combination of hardware and software.  The body as the hardware and the Psycho-Spiritual aspects as the software.  This came up in our last episode as a sort of reference but it drove the conversation in a meaningful way and thus we wanted to do it justice and give it a little more air time as we continue our deep dive into the Supreme Source, or Kunjed Gyalpo as a continuation on the 3 aspects of Enlightenment.

    the Sourcecode: Hardware v Software

    the Sourcecode: Hardware v Software

    In this episode we continue our discussion of the Buddhist view of the deeper aspects of ourselves and the enlightened states.  We give a brief story of a historical TIbetan Buddhist figure, Padmasambhava.  We discuss pure and total consciousness as the source of all.  Ironically we spar a bit over the Hardware/Software debate of the human condition...Are we more than just our bodies? And either way how do we know?

    The Book we discuss is the Kunjed Gyalpo or The Supreme Source.

    The Platform Sutra

    In this episode we discuss some different takes on reality, God, The Holy Spirit and Original Sin.  We then move our discussion to the main topic of this episode, mainly that of the story of the 6th Zen Master and The Platform Sutra.  It was a fascinating story with some deep lessons for us all.
