    Knowing for Yourself ~ The Buddha ~ Kalama Sutta AN 3.65 - Theravadin Pali Buddhism

    Knowing for Yourself ~ The Buddha ~ Kalama Sutta AN 3.65 - Theravadin Pali Buddhism

    This is a reading for contemplation of the Kalama Sutta. The instructions to the Kalamas  is renowned for its encouragement of free inquiry; the spirit of the sutta signifies a teaching that is exempt from fanaticism, bigotry, dogmatism, and intolerance. As Thanisarro says, "The reasonableness of the Dhamma, the Buddha's teaching, is chiefly evident in its welcoming careful examination at all stages of the path to enlightenment. Indeed the whole course of training for wisdom culminating in the purity of the consummate one (the arahant) is intimately bound up with examination and analysis of things internal.."

    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) ~ Serenity ~ Taoism

    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) ~ Serenity ~ Taoism

    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) was a Taoist sage, living sometime before 250 B.C. He is credited with writing- in part or in whole - a work known by his name, the Zhuangzi, which is one of the foundational texts of Taoism. The text is ranked among the greatest of literary and philosophical masterpieces that China has produced.  Its style is complex—mythical, poetic, narrative, humorous, indirect, and polysemic.  Much of the text of the Zhuangzi espouses a holistic philosophy of life, encouraging disengagement from the artificialities of socialization, and cultivation of our natural “ancestral” potencies and skills, in order to live a simple and natural, but full and flourishing life.

    The 24 Gurus of Dattatreya ~ Advaita-Vedanta

    The 24 Gurus of Dattatreya ~ Advaita-Vedanta

    A reading for meditation of the 24 Gurus of Dattatreya - translated by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. 

    Dattatreya is considered to be the incarnation of the Trinity- Brahma, Vishnu and Siva – a Trimurti Avatar. The Philosophy propounded by Lord Dattatreya is found in the ‘Avadhuta Gita’ which is a Vedantic text expounding non-dualism. Dattatreya, in the eleventh chapter of Srimad Bhagavata lists his 24 Gurus and considers himself a simple student of the whole creation.  The young Dattatreya is famous in the Hindu texts as the one who started with nothing and without teachers, yet reached self-awareness by observing nature during his Sannyasi wanderings, and treating these natural observations as his twenty four teachers. This legend has been emblematic in the Hindu belief, particularly among artists and Yogis, that ideas, teachings and practices come from all sources, that self effort is a means to learning.

This podcast is nothing if not a gem

Perhaps, for me this far and now, THE gem.
Most of the best concepts I’ve know and felt in My life, and from a variety of noted sources, presented, without hyperbole, in the most palpable, sensitive, expressive, honest style.

Superb!

I’ve recently had the good fortune of coming into contact with this podcast and I’m blessed to have done so. Truly I thank you.

So good for Busy Brain

There’s something about these meditations that just work so well for me when my monkey brain is going a million miles a minute. That whole “ugh! I don’t WANNA meditate” feeling is perfectly remedied by this podcast. I just flip it on with no Pomp or circumstance, no meditation cushion, no mudras, but somehow it arrests me into that state regardless (and pretty consistently). Thanks for the inner peace. Namaste 💗
