The Tetralemma

Podcast with David Padwa 

A serio-comic tour through modern Buddhism. The story illustrates how life's completely random encounters causally create a chain-of-events on the meaning of silent words in one's mind, of thought, of consciousness, of chance and necessity, philosophical emptiness, the "middle-way", psychedelic chemicals, anatomy, mathematics, neuroscience, enlightenment, machine intelligence, and the absolute indispensable future of sex. 

Not really by Joel Ash but by old Buddhist etc friend David Padwa
Released June 23
