Latest Episodes

143 - Eye Of The Beholder

In this episode, I will talk about perception and the role it plays in how we experience our reality. Reality is in the eye of the beholder. “Dependent on the eye and forms, eye-consciousness arises...The meeting of the three is contact.” With contact as a requisite condition, there is feeling. What one feels, one perceives. What one perceives, one thinks about.

142 - Wisdom and Fear

"Some see something to fear where there is nothing to fear, and some see nothing to fear where there is something to fear." In this episode, I will talk about fear from a Buddhist perspective. Fear is universal but there are perhaps some fears that are skillful and others that are unskilful.
