Podcast Episode 6: The Eightfold Path

And welcome back to the Daily Buddhism. I’m Brian, your host, and today I’m going to introduce you to Buddha’s eightfold path.

But first, I need to discuss some podcast business.

First, I want to welcome all the new subscribers from iTunes. It seemed to take forever, but our podcast is now listed on iTunes and the number of listeners has exploded. Welcome to all of you and keep in mind that this is still a fairly new podcast, and it’s still going to be pretty easy to catch up on all the previous shows. Just open iTunes, click on this podcast and click on the ‚ÄúGet All‚Äù button to download all the previous episodes. You can still get completely caught up with everyone else in less than an hour. Of course, all the text of everything said in the podcast is available both on the website, www.dailybuddhism.com as well as in the daily emailing.

Secondly, this will be the last podcast for a couple of weeks. I’m going out of town until May 5th. Just like before, Internet access is going to be difficult. The daily emails will stop temporarily and so with the podcast. It can’t be avoided, but rest assured, this will most likely be the last extended break for the Daily Buddhism. We’re mostly through the very basic introductory material now, so when I do return, we’ll get back on track and into the interesting stuff fairly quickly. Stay tuned; subscribe to the podcast and sign up for the email list from the website and you won’t miss a thing.

OK. Last time we talked about the Four Noble Truths, and the fourth Noble Truth told us that the way out of suffering is the eight fold path, Buddha’s ‚Äúcure‚Äù for the suffering of this world.
