I came across a pretty nice podcast the other day. I’ts done by Rev. Kusala Bhikshu. Rev. Kusala is a Buddhist monk who plays a mean blues harmonica and does interviews of other monks and nuns, and talks to Catholic School children about Buddhism.The interview with the Abbott gets into stuff you don’t often think about, like how does the monestary provide health care coverage for the monks?
I’ve always been fascinated by monasticism, especially Buddhist. (Probably watched too many Kung-Fu movies as a kid.)
Anyhow, if you’re into that sort of thing, it’s worth a listen.
