First Year Anniversary!

| March 8, 2018 | 2 Comments

Wow, it’s hard to believe a year has already passed since publishing my first video on YouTube! In the interim we’ve had a busy time going through some of the dharma of early Buddhism, with a focus on contemporary practice and experience. Here’s a look back with some thoughts on the channel going forward.

Links to some past videos:

The Eightfold Path
The Four Noble Truths
Dependent Origination
Considering Karma
Buddhism and Stoicism
Buddha and Jesus on Wealth
Buddhist Economics
Meditation 101
Sticking with Practice
Spiritual Materialism
Spiritual Bypassing

    Hard to believe it’s been a whole year, for sure.

    This is a really outstanding contribution to understanding Buddhist ideas. Great explanations of the basics for curious beginners, but also manages to make those of us who imagine we know something reexamine what we believe.

    Thanks, Doug.
