Get dhamma audio talks where you want them, when you want them via the new BSWA podcast

For those who love dhamma talks - especially those by Ajahn Brahm - I have a good news.
There's now a new audio podcast set up by the Buddhist Society of WA that is publishing dhamma talks nearly everyday! The aim of this podcast - which is already getting nearly 70,000 plays per month! - is to make it easy to access dharma talks on any device, any time.

How does podcasting make it easy to access dhamma talks?

You don't even need to understand how it works. All you need is a podcast app on your iphone, android phone or on your personal computer and follow the easy instructions below to have a dhamma talk automagically delivered to you each day.

Here's how to subscribe via the Podbean app
1. Whether you've got an iphone or android phone, go into you app store and search for "podbean".
2. Download the app (it's free!)
3. Search for "Buddhist Society" or a similar term (I'm pretty sure searching for "Ajahn Brahmavamso" will work too)
4. "Follow" this podcast. You'll see a regularly updated list of talks on this channel.
5. Start downloading or playing the talks you want to hear.
If you're using another podcast app already, try step 3 above and see if the podcast has been broadcast on that network first, because I've been informed that other podcasting apps also have this podcast in their libraries.
You can also go to the BSWA podcast website - http://podcast.bswa.org - and search for talks by topics listed on the right hand site. To listen to any audio talk, just press the play button for the talk you'd like to listen to.

For those of you who are tech-savvy and want to get the podcast via your own app, here is a podcast URL you can use:
Or to get the podcast via iTunes:
Hope this helps you all bliss out! :)

Satipaṭṭhāna and Samādhi, by Ajahn Brahmali

One of the most common unquestioned assumptions among Buddhist meditators is that satipaṭṭhāna is synonymous with vipassanā. This assumption, it seems, often is a result of reading the Satipaṭṭhāna Suttas in isolation without carefully considering the context in which satipaṭṭhāna is used throughout the suttas. (1) When the broader view of the entire Sutta Piṭaka is taken into account, it becomes clear that such an assumption is, at best, only partially correct. In this short study I will investigate the various contexts in which satipaṭṭhāna appears and in particular consider its relationship with samādhi.

Ajahn Brahm at Cambridge - Prof Bernard Carr

I first met Ajahn Brahm (or Pete Betts as he was then) when we were students together in Cambridge 45 years ago. The story of our meeting is now well-known and even recorded in a YouTube interview with Ajahn. I was a member of the Cambridge University Buddhist Society (CUBS), recruiting new members at the Societies Fair in October 1969. He was keen to join immediately but apparently I urged restraint and suggested that he wait until after the first talk to confirm that Buddhism really was his ”cup of tea”. However, he rejected my advice and joined immediately.
