1/ As one of the #buddhist6 (lol), I can’t recommend Sharon Salzberg highly enough for anyone who wants to dig deeper into Buddhism. I’ve seen her many times. She’s great for beginners because she makes the concepts and practices extremely accessible. There are lots of videos on YouTube, she has a podcast called “the Metta Hour,” and she’s written a lot of books. Her book “Faith” is one of my favorites and one I’ve heard her recommend often to people.
@maryg987 I was a fan, as well, but I don't use iTunes to listen to my podcasts, so maybe I don't count...? 😬
@maryg987 I use Podcast Player on Android. It's simple and up-to-date.
@maryg987 I haven't read Sharon Salzberg, but loved a book by Sylvia Boorstein. Are you familiar with her?
Hi @TrelaH - a little bit. She and Sharon have done workshops together, but I’ve never seen Sylvia.
@maryg987 I’m another one of the #Buddhist6. I studied under a Tibetan Lama. He told me that I couldn’t take refuge under him if I believed in a God, so I started looking at other aspects of Buddhism via the Love Serve Remember network like you did. I really like Lama Surya Das as well. His podcast is very insightful to the Dharma.
@justincalebbryant Lama Surya Das is great. There are a lot of great teachers. After the Sharon recommendation, I just picked a few who immediately came to mind.
@maryg987 weird question, but do you happen to head over the Ram Dass Fellowship?
@justincalebbryant - it’s not a weird question. That’s me! :)
@maryg987 I thought so! I’m over the Charleston Satsang. I had no idea that you were a Liturgists! How cool!
@maryg987 I loved the Buddhist episodes too! 😂 I’ll add this book to my list.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
