The book, The Feeling Buddha, almost fell off the shelf in my hands while I was browsing in a book store. It totally reframed my relationship to Buddhism. I was teaching a Basic Buddhism class and giving Dharma talks at a local Tibetan (Drinking Kagyu) center at the time, and tended to weave passages from the book in every talk. ;) It will help you make sense of Dharmvidya's / Brazier Sensei's teachings in Not Everything is Impermanent and in the Vow 22 program.

Hi Greg, yes The Feeling Buddha really does set out in detail Dharmavidya's (David Brazier) reading and interpretation of the Four Noble Truths teaching. Now you have encountered this later short text you will no doubt see that his thinking has developed in small ways, though the core thesis, still as challenging as it was when the book was first published, remains a convincing one to many people. This chimes with the quote you discovered at your doctor's office and leads me to consider the universality of the truth that the Shakyamuni sought to re-present in the language of his time.

I started reading the first few pages and discovered that I might want to read "The Feeling Buddha" first. In any case the discussion around the difference between the Four Noble Truths and Four Truths for Noble Persons hit home. As was the idea that maybe the goal isn't to avoid suffering, but learning live in it when it arises. Along those lines I noticed a saying on the wall in my doctor's office today, "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

I have added a reading from Part One: "Inner Peace" which explores the subject of  accompaniment, some of the parallels with the therapeutic relationship and the role of a spiritual master. Namo Amida Butsu

I have just added this mornings recording 'Three Core Principles' which looks at the three 'kayas' and how they apply to the core of all spiritual traditions, and the relationship between the ordinary being 'bombu' and the ultimate or immeasurable. Namo Amida Bu

Thank you for the feedback Francesca, I am glad the sound is clear. Yes I too am dipping into it in a non linear fashion and happening upon many gems along the way.

I've just listened to 'We are Ordinary' and at 50% volume it was fine and I wasn't using headphones. Great reading too. I'm enjoying the book although I'm reading it in a non-linear way which is interesting. It's the sort of book that I feel I can come back to again and again. Thanks Jnanamati.

Thanks Richard. I am discovering how easy it is to make mistakes when reading in this way, so a good exercise in being focussed. Hopefully there will be a chance to see you when I am in England next week. NAB

I liked " We are Ordinary "

Well read Jnanamati.  Great to hear your voice reading Dharmavidya's words.

It's a great book that I am probably reading too quickly - so it's good to read it again, along with your voice running alongside as I do so. NAB.
