    Buddha Basics Podcast 01 - Oodles of Buddha

    Dear All,

    Our Zen of Everything Podcast takes a new turn, as Reverend Jundo (that's me) irreverently (yet somehow reverently too) dives into the basic history and teachings of Buddhism and Zen for both newcomers and fellow 'old Zen fools.'

    Never in thousands of years of Buddhist history has there been a podcast like this, and that's not only because they did not have podcasts back then.

    I will say what needs to be said, some things that shouldn't be said, some things best left unsaid, some things said best and said right, plus all that Zen stuff that really cannot be said in words anyway. Let's be serious when it is time to be serious, but also let's laugh together and not take our Buddhisty selves (and non-selves) too seriously.

    In the coming weeks, we will cover all the fundamental Buddhist teachings, the old stories and tales, the Wisdom and Practices of our Zen Way ... 'splained in plain English, plus a few grains of salt. Guaranteed to be enlightening and timeless or, at least, fun, informative and illuminating, time well spent.

    Here's our first episode of the new series ...

    Buddha Basics 01: Oodles of Buddhas
    https://www.zen-of-everything.com/79

    This is the first episode of our Buddha Basics series, which looks at the basics of Buddhism as never expressed before, featuring the irreverent comments of Reverend Jundo, a real Zen Roshi. No Buddha BS here. In this Buddha Basics episode, we look at why there are so many Buddhas, an infinite number of Buddhas, and who's who.
    We were really torn on a name for the podcast, but settled on "Buddha Basics" because that is what we will cover. Other names tossed out included: "Badass Buddhism," "Make Buddhism Great Again," "No Bull Buddhism" "Blasphemous Buddha Basics" and more. We settled on just "Buddha Basics," although it is actually short for:




    And though our Zen way is beyond all likes and dislikes ... if you like the darn thing, please leave a positive ratings on iTunes! It really helps support the effort.

    Really good. Love the humor. Great to not be attached to even our most revered stories. And, I can likewise say that never before in over a thousand years of Buddhism has there been a comment such as this (cuz I just wrote it). Looking forward to more.

    I was waiting for Kirk to chastise you for your singing, Jundo.
    ...
    Especially since it was the Beatles.

    Thank you both, as always!

    I absolutely love the podcast, and as a newer member here it’s fantastic to hear Kirk and Jundo “live”.

    I hope everyone is well!

    I think this is the first time I actually laugh out loud at a podcast, very good episode, sounds like a series with a lot of potential

    I wish I had listened to this podcast when I was starting my journey! Though actually knowing what you are talking about makes it much more funny and informative.

    Greetings

    Just checked out the podcast. It happily reminded me of a sort of Car Talk of Buddhism. Do any of these episodes feature a "guest"?

    No, we haven’t had any guests; I’m not sure we ever will. But never say never.

    I traditional Zen lingo, the "Host" stands for the Absolute unity, the "Guest" for the relative world of separate things. They can also stand for teacher and student.

    But, in Zen, recall that the guest is precisely the host that is guesting, and the host is the guest that is hosting.

    So our little Podcast is always full to the brim with Hosts and Guests.

    An example from old Koan:

    "The head monks of two parts of the meditation hall caught sight of each other and simultaneously gave a shout.

    A monk asked the Master, 'In this case, was there any guest and any host, or wasn't there?'

    The Master said, 'Guest and host are perfectly obvious!' Then the Master said, 'All of you -- if you want to understand what I have just said about guest and host, go ask the two head monks of the meditation hall.' "

    (from The Zen Teachings of Master Lin-chi)
