We are back, and with a new cohost! Catherine has become a nun, and so will be spending the next few years offline as she goes through monastic training.
Meet Bertin—a college student from Australia and our new regular member on the podcast.
This season, we will be reviewing some foundational Buddhist concepts while building up to the larger theme of the Land and Water Dharma Service, which is happening in Australia this March. A lot of times, these long services seem grueling and unnecessary, but with a bit of Buddhist background, they become incredibly profound modes of practice. So today, we will start with a very familiar concept—the Four Noble Truths.
I apologize in advance for my low quality microphone—I will be sure to resolve the issue in future episodes.
