Thought for the Day

The following talks are taken from BBC Radio 4's "Thought for the Day" series. Most are by Vishvapani, a Triratna member and are given from a Buddhist perspective. Occasionally relevant talks by speakers from various other faith traditions are included.

"This brief, uninterrupted interlude has the capacity to plant a seed of thought that stays with listeners during the day. Thought for the Day is broadcast during the Today programme on BBC Radio 4 every morning at around 7.45am."

This piece is by Bishop Tom Butler who describes how quite early in his ministry he served for five years as a priest in Zambia in Central Africa and encountered some of the first cases of HIV AIDS. He talks of the essential need for compassion within the NHS. The Dalai Lama, when asked what Buddhism meant to him, what was his religion, replied..... Compassion!
