In the third talk in our ‘Religion without God’ series, we have some big questions. When you don’t believe in an afterlife, what vision can there be around death and dying? What did the Buddha mean when he taught about karma, re-becoming and rebirth?

Here Candradasa uses Buddhist scripture, vision literature, and poetry to tease out a sense of the Buddha’s awesome vision of what life is, and how that might affect our ideas of what happens after death. Big ideas, big visions to sit with - all pointing to a practically beautiful experience of seeing things clearly in this life…

I’ve been enjoying this series. When I try to “play all” this talk thru the browser (in FF and Safari, actually) it stops around 3:36 both here and on the fba site. Will download, but thought I’d let you know. Probably so popular it’s challenging the server. ;)

Ha ha - yes, Mary, undoubtedly server load! ;) Thanks - will investigate…

Works ok he on iPad, Mary, though I am having trouble on the FBA version using ‘play all’ (individual tracks work ok so it might be HTML5 audio pre-load/caching). Can you send an email with browser, OS details, etc. and we’ll check it out? Thanks!

Yes, FBA did finally load on iPad - Safari is particularly slow with HTML5 audio streaming things and I’d honestly recommend Chrome for that. But both contexts did work eventually

I’ll try again from home tonight and send details if it’s still a problem. I’m glad to hear it played when you tried!
