Zen practices for daily life

6/13/2024
Welcome to another episode from our podcast season on 'Ancient Wisdom For Modern Living.' Each episode aims to provide practical insights and actionable advice, helping listeners incorporate ancient wisdom into their daily routines to achieve greater balance and wellness. This episode provides a comprehensive look at how Zen principles can offer valuable guidance for living a mindful, balanced, and fulfilling life. In this episode, host Anshu Bahanda looks toward the ancient practice of Zen Buddhism with two esteemed guests: Professor Ruben L. F. Hábito, a Filipino Zen rōshi of the Sanbō Kyōdan lineage, and Shozan Jack Haubner, a Zen Buddhist priest known for his humorous takes on monastic life, having spent many years in a monastery. Hábito discusses the Zen koan (story) of the monk who carries a woman across the river. After helping her, he continues on his journey, but his fellow monk is troubled, later asking, “Why did you carry that woman?" The first monk replies, "I left her at the river. Are you still carrying her?” This story underscores the essence of Zen presence—letting go of the past to remain steadfastly in the now. Zen Buddhism is a Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism that emphasises the value of meditation and intuition. Hábito also explains the core concepts of Zen, focusing on the practice of Zazen, a form of seated meditation, and offers practical advice on how to start practising Zazen. Jack Haubner shares insights on integrating Zen practices into daily activities. He also discusses the role of humour in Zen practice and how it can be used to cope with life’s challenges. Haubner's anecdotes from monastic life provide a relatable and lighthearted perspective on applying Zen principles in everyday situations.

Taoism and the art of balance

5/30/2024
Welcome to the first episode of our new podcast season 'Ancient Wisdom For Modern Living'. Each episode aims to provide practical insights and actionable advice, helping listeners incorporate ancient wisdom into their daily routines to achieve greater balance and wellness. In the opening series of the season 'Lessons From Ancient Philosophies,' host Anshu Bahanda will look back on timeless teachings, and talk about adapting them to address current personal and global challenges. The series will feature guests who are experts on topics such as Taoism, Zen Buddhism and Sufism. In this episode, Anshu Bahanda delves into the ancient philosophy of Taoism with Professor James Miller from Duke Kunshan University in China. Taoism is a philosophical and spiritual tradition that originated in ancient China all the way back in 500 BCE. Miller explains the core concepts of this ancient Chinese philosophy, focusing on Wu Wei (effortless action), which advocates for aligning with the natural flow of life rather than forcing one's will upon it. The discussion highlights how Taoism emphasises the importance of balance in all aspects of life, drawing parallels with other ancient philosophies such as Hinduism and Stoicism. He elaborates on the Taoist approach to conflict resolution, which involves deflecting aggression and seeking harmony rather than engaging in direct confrontation. He gives insights into how Taoism addresses ecological balance, underscoring the interconnectedness of human well-being and environmental health. This episode provides a comprehensive look at how Taoist principles can offer valuable guidance for living a balanced, harmonious life in this century.

In a world brimming with possibilities, why should hate be anyone's message? This finale episode isn't just a conversation; it's a rallying cry for everyone to play a role in ensuring that no one is denied happiness, fulfilment, or acceptance because of their community, gender, skin colour, body type, or sexual preference.

Her candid recounting includes moments of self-consciousness, even at a Black Lives Matter event, illustrating the pervasive nature of these biases.

As the founder of BOLD, India's first LGBT modelling agency, and the managing director of Mitr Trust, Rudrani works tirelessly to create a more inclusive and fair environment for LGBTQIA+ individuals. This episode explores how biases, whether based on skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, religion, community, body types, or anything else, can be challenged and changed through everyday actions. From mindful language use to supporting inclusive brands and fostering diversity in the workplace, every small step counts. Join us as we explore why hate should never be a life's message, and how each of us can contribute to a world where everyone can live happily and fulfillingly, free from prejudice and discrimination.

S7 E6 | Preparing Kids for Financial Success

11/7/2023
In an era that's minting teenage entrepreneurs with hefty bank accounts, instilling an early understanding of money's true purpose is more important than ever. This episode features the insights of Soha Gawaly, the managing director and co-founder of Strategic Investments Group and a trailblazer in the hedge fund industry. Soha offers actionable tips and creative techniques for teaching children about financial literacy, from engaging in money games to encouraging artistic expressions like piggy bank painting. She also emphasises that money is a tool and should be treated as such—a means to achieve our ends, not the end itself. We're reminded of the wisdom in ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ author Robert Kiyosaki's words: "It's not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for." This episode builds on that philosophy, aiming to equip our children with the mindset and habits for long-term financial wellness. As part of our season on Financial Well-being, "Preparing Kids for Financial Success" is an essential listen for parents, educators, and even children of all ages. This isn't just a podcast episode—it's a vital resource that schools should showcase and families should experience together. Don't miss out on the chance to lay the foundation for your child's prosperous future.
