All episodes restored

Hi Pixel5by5. Sorry to hear you lost access to old episodes of the podcast! It's not that we changed things just for the sake of it - we had to in relation to issues with our podcast provider and a need to separate out the two feeds for our two podcasts. We can see that witin iTunes access does indeed seem to be limited to the last 300 episodes. However, all are accessible under ‘See all episodes’ within the iOS version of Apple’s Podcast app - and in other podcast apps. We'll look into the iTunes-specific issues but, for now, would recommend using another app to listen.

Impermanence sure, but argh! Where are the eps?

I absolutely adore this podcast, but someone just got the bright idea to “update” it, and killed 164 episodes worth that I had saved to my phone, that I listen to with regularity. I lost classic dharma teachings like “We have wine, but no cups” that repeatedly made me laugh, inspired me, made me think deeply, produced real moments of insight, and gave me comfort in hard times. I appreciate all these new eps, but why on the Buddha’s green Earth would you delete all the others going back as far as 2010? Please bring them back from oblivion! I was using them for mind training in the spiritual desert that is Los Angeles. Also, please give us full talks, not a mere 3-15 minutes of mostly intro & outro music. I used to sit & listen to multiple long talks & it was a source of sustained bliss. In fact, if you would like to earn money for the sangha, sell full talks or series of talks we can buy and own permanently on iTunes.

Best at complexities. Unique. Special.

Others gloss over complexities and write wordy tomes but these lectures go right to the heart of complex issues: death and the Buddhist, what is mind? This is a fabulous set of lectures, but not for those who prefer their "mystery". The more I listen to, the more I value this set of lectures. Do not be put off by seemingly excessive intellectual complexities. The subjects discussed are, by their very nature, complex.

Three Visions of the Buddha

I loved the talk on the Three Visions of the Buddha. I wish we would hear more from this particular speaker. Not only are his talks well thought out, but very well presented. I would really like to learn more from him. Please encourage more talks from this particular speaker. Thank you very much.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, an unconditioned thought."

A reflection of the quality of the practice of real western buddhists. Real western people engaging in real western practice, no dilettantes here. Buddhism is not simply its cultural trappings as many practioners might have you believe. Culture provides context for our own lived experience in the present, it should not provide pretext. Humorous and insightful, an absolute jewel amidst the rubish of dharmatunities. Heh. And I want Abhaya to be my Grandfather.
