And welcome back!


I’m Brian your host and welcome to the Daily Buddhism podcast number thirteen. Remember that you can find all back issues and episodes of the Daily Buddhism emails and podcasts at Be sure to never miss anything by signing up for the daily email while you’re there.


And I will take this opportunity to remind everyone about the companion podcast concerning the Tao Te Ching. The ‚ÄúTao of the Day‚Äù covers a chapter of the Tao every weekday. We’re currently about halfway through the Tao, but that’s OK, all past shows are still available and easy to download. If you’re interested, stop n over at or do a search on iTunes for Tao (that’s spelled T-A-O in both cases).


If you found the show through iTunes, I’d appreciate it if you posted a review of the show there. If you have any comments or suggestions about the show, send me an email at If you would like to discuss anything we cover, there are a few ways to do that:


  1. Post comments on the website. Every daily email article is also posted there, so you can post your questions, comments, or thoughts about that topic right there.


  1. If you have a private questions or comment, send me an email at


  1. And now something new: Due to suggestions from listeners and readers, we now have a message forum. You can post your own questions or topics there, and anyone can respond to them. If there’s a topic I haven’t covered, you can start your own topics there. It’s called the ‚ÄúArcane Things Forum‚Äù and there’s a link there from the website,

And now on with today’s show. This time, we’re going to cover The Eight Auspiscious Symbols.
