Podcast Episode 62: Hatred, Ignorance, and Looking to the Weekend

Welcome back, this is Daily Buddhism audio show number Sixty-Two recorded April 28th, 2013. My name is Brian Schell, and I am the your host for the show. You can find the text as well as all links mentioned in this program and all past episodes on the website at


If you aren’t signed up for the email newsletter, just go to and fix that oversight right now. It’s free and easier than ever to sign up. Note that after the long absence, I threw out the old email list. Rather than deal with people who had forgotten about me, I decided to start over, so if you used to get the email, sign up again; it’s all fresh and new.

If you enjoy the podcasts, and the website, and the emails, and the Tweets, and the Facebook posts, then don’t forget to buy the book! My book, The Five-Minute Buddhist was recently released on Amazon, Nook, iTunes, and as a paperback. It’s essentially the “Best of Daily Buddhism.” You can get it in pretty much any format you want. Just go to and follow the links. If you’ve already picked up a copy, please leave a review on whichever site you got the book from.
Please note: I’m getting the podcasts caught up from WAY back. The following posts never made it into the last podcast in 2009. These are topics from that time period. Over the coming weeks, I plan to record podcasts for these “retro-topics” until we get all caught up. All these topics are still on the website, and there is no reason whatsoever why you cannot leave your comments on them at any time. I’d love to hear what you’ve got to say!

    Just want to say that I’m glad you are back with new podcasts.
    I’ve just downloaded a sample of your new book on my kindle. Will take a look at it tomorrow morning, when the excitement of the Malaysian Elections get out of the way. 🙂
    Can’t say I’m Buddhist, but I agree with many of the concepts explored on some of the shows. Thanks for the wise writings and podcasts!
    A suggestion: Is it possible to record the podcasts stereo? Right now I can only hear your voice in the left earphone 🙂 The music sounds stereo over both earphones, though.

  • Can you please explain the concept of having kids according to the teaching of Buddha. As per my understanding according to the 4 noble truth to end the suffering we should eliminate the cause of suffering. If the suffering of attachment is caused by children shouldn’t we be not having them in the first place ?

    Please comment….
