Live from Forest House near Rivendell Retreat Centre in the UK - we’re not sure a podcast setting gets any more mythic than that!
Our friends Mandarava and Nagasiddhi are running an online Home Retreat for us - with amazing puppets, original artwork for the event, and an abundance of magic images illustrating tales from the life of the Buddha. And you are invited!

Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy (Who is the Buddha?, What is the Dharma? and What is the Sangha?) is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Buddhism.

A self-proclaimed ‘doctrine follower’, Nagasuri challenges herself to speak on the basis of her faith in the Buddha, and does so with moving eloquence. Personal, full of devotion, she shares over 30 years of being in contact with the Buddha and explains how the grace of the Buddha’s blessings has opened her heart time and time again.
