John Peacock's "Buddhism Before the Theravada" Part 4 – EP5 Dharma PhD

Welcome to Dharma PhD! In this episode we talk about John Peacocks' talk, "Buddhism Before the Theravada, Part 4". We talk about how our experience is troubled because we misunderstand how our minds work (avijjā) and how much of our daily activities are actually more habit than will (sankhāra). A few things referred to: Dr. Judson Brewer (drjud.com) and his book The Craving Mind. (https://tinyurl.com/y4hs8vmm) The concept of Learning in Public. (https://www.swyx.io/learn-in-public/) Hedonic Tone, also called "feeling tone" is my preferred translation of the Pāli word "vedanā". I talked about it over on my other podcast in a few episodes: https://www.buddha-bites-podcast.com/episode/buddha-bites-ep23 The Google ad we were referring to was titled "Reunion". (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHGDN9-oFJE) A random Tumblr search for you: https://www.tumblr.com/search/grogu/recent. Michael Gazzaniga's amazing book Who's in Charge. (https://tinyurl.com/y2kyaxpa) Dr. BJ Fogg and his Tiny Habits program. (https://www.tinyhabits.com/) and finally, Charles Duhigg's The Power of Habit.
