Podcast Episode 17: Families and Buddhism

Podcast Episode 17

Welcome back, This is episode 17 of the Daily Buddhism, and I’m your host, Brian Schell. Before we get started recapping the week’s material, I’ve got a couple of quick announcements.

A few weeks back, I announced that I had audio recordings of the entire Tao te ching available for purchase on the Taooftheday.com website, and starting today, I now have a 2 CD set of the Dhammapada available on the Daily Buddhism site, once again recorded by yours truly. It’s available directly from the website and there’s a link over on the left hand side of the screen, under the heading ‚ÄúPages‚Äù I’ll also include a link in the show notes. Starting this week, we’ll be taking a look at the Dhammapada, in my opinion the single most important ancient text in Buddhism. We’ll talk a little bit more about the Dhammapada later in this episode.

And now it’s time for me to make another call for donations. Call it a ‚Äúpledge drive‚Äù if you prefer. Although I’ve gotten a few donations, I can’t say that I am overwhelmed. I absolutely want to thank the people who have sent in donations. I’m still trying to pay off the microphone I bought way back around episode 7, and I had also hoped to get a voice mail number like some other podcasts have, but I don’t see that happening without additional support. Sooner or later, I’ll need to pay for web hosting for another year. The link to donate is there on the site, it’s easy to find. I always enjoy your emails and letters of encouragement, but you know‚Ķ c’mon guys, out of literally thousands of listeners, this begging shouldn’t be needed every week. I’ve got a specific target goal that I need to reach, and then I can stop pestering‚ĶI mean begging, every week.

OK, and now on with the show!
