Description

This podcast is pragmatic, secular and makes complicated Buddhist principles easy to understand.

Yeshe is a Buddhist monk. He is from England and teaches meditation, Buddhist philosophy and mindfulness.

Yeshe spent several years in a monastery in the foothills of the Himalayas teaching young monks basic Buddhist philosophy and meditation. He now offers teachings freely to all in a manner that is unpretentious and clear. He does not demand students to blindly accept what he says, but instead invites them to examine their own minds and experiences to discover the validity of Gautama Buddha’s teachings.

Yeshe quietly demonstrates Gautama Buddha’s teaching on compassion through the charitable trust ‘Sangye Menla’ that he founded in 2008 in Chandigarh, Northern India. The trust provides medical assistance and care to people from the Himalayan region in India.

In the fourth truth, he explained what path we can take to start the process of destroying the three poisons. This path is known as the eightfold path. This path is not a religious path and doesn’t require rituals, prayers, ceremonies, or even for you to become a Buddhist. It can be looked upon as a path that leads to us living a responsible life and so anybody can practise it. So, it isn’t a Buddhist practice, it is more of a lifestyle practice.

The first noble truth describes how life has suffering running through it and in the second truth Buddha gave some of the reasons for this suffering. There is not just one cause of our suffering, as there is not one cause of anything. Things come into being through a series of causes and conditions, and that is the same for our suffering. However, there are three main things that cause us emotional and psychological suffering, namely, the three poisons. They are clinging desire, anger and aversion and unawareness.

Buddha‘s first teaching was on the four noble truths, and it still remains the very foundation on which Buddhism is built. It was these four realities that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree, and they provide a conceptual framework for all of Buddhist thought. The first reality is ‘There is suffering.’ The word suffering here means a dissatisfaction, discontentment, an uneasy feeling running through our lives.

Emotional Suffering

Emotional Suffering

2019-11-1508:169

What would you say if I told you the largest part of your emotional suffering was caused by yourself? I expect you would be doubtful or even shocked, but it is true. The way we live our lives, our beliefs, biases, concepts and social conditioning all cause us to mentally suffer. By suffering I mean our minds get disturbed, we become disillusioned, dissatisfied, discontented. This often results in stress, anxiety and depression. None of these are helpful or healthy.

Learning how to stay focused on a single object, thought, emotion, feeling, body sensation or experience is going to cut down on distractions and help strengthen our minds. One of the best ways to achieve single-pointed awareness is through meditation.

So true, such people who don't know their mind and express their negativity are so precious for our practice and we should hold them dear! I am a lucky one to have succeeded to get tightly into such a relationship and with its constant challange it is true patience and compassion that have been developing! No-one in the society would never understand this work I am doing instead of enjoying myself in the relationship :)

Dear BG, Just started the course, so unsurprisingly have a question re an early point: In episode #1, the speaker (u?) tells us that there's been a dispute (or disputes) re the tranlstation from the Budhist texts into English of the term that he (& I presume most other anglophones) call, suffering. Then, deploying the term, the speaker begins his brief, clear, introductory exposition of the, " 4 Noble Truths"... However, as 'suffering' is certainly one of (& maybe the) most important words in the Budhist English Lexicon, I wonder if u might begin to explain some of the alternate, less favored &/or rejected English terms for "suffering;" as well as, for other central Budhist terms, along with the contexts & arguments surrounding the eventual choice of the current preferred terms... So far tho, if (i must confess) without any reply, I find this blogcast unpretentiously wise, calming, even brilliantly pure medicine for my physically tortured spine (ST) & slso, tho initially dating from1962-63, but especially since November 2016, for my socially & politically tortured heart. Thank u, Sholom B.
