The down to earth real nature of these talks is amazing. I am able to connect with the speakers and the message with every listen. Ajahn Brahm’s jokes are top notch.

I appreciate all the talks from the monks and nuns, but Ajahn Brahm deliveries the best dharma talks. But he’s a busy monk so I take what I’m giving. And I’m thankful for every dharma talk.

It’s a shame. I’ve listened to this podcast for a long time. Your Islamic guest speaker likening sexual orientation to drugs and alcohol to avoid agitation of the heart was a cruel statement, in my opinion. Not something I expect to hear on a Buddhist podcast.

I am so grateful for Ajahn Brahm and his dharma talks. I’ve learned so much and when I forget what I learned he’s there to gently remind me. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu! - love from Phoenix Arizona!

I’ve been listening to talks from the BSOWA since 2012. Ajahn Brahm, Nissarano, Brahmali, and others have become fixtures in my life who I always come back to for wisdom to remind me of the truths of life. After growing up in an emotionally and physically abusive family, the monks’ years of talks...Read full review »

Makes Buddhist teachings and philosophy accessible to those new to it. Good for anyone who wants to understand Buddhism even on a non-religious basis.

People who practice Buddhism are supposed to let go of worldly pleasures, I’m addicted to listening to these monks and nuns!
seekimcee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/21
More people need to know about these! So helpful and informative in learning and practicing Buddhism and learning about life in general.

I have been listening to this podcast for probably more than 5 years now, although my listening has decreased in recent years. I discovered this podcast when I was a troubled high schooler dealing with anxiety and depression (although I didn’t know it) and this podcast, and particularly Ajahn...Read full review »

Ajahn Brahm alongside the other monks of Buddhist Society of Western Australia have played a major role in my processing of everyday life and moving past pain, guilt, thought, materialism, and much more. I highly recommend you spend some time reflecting with these lovely humans!

I’ve been listening to Ajahn Brahm for years. This man’s teachings are worth the listen.

My first podcast review ever. The BSWA as a whole has been such a gift, such a blessing to me over the past few years. I have become a better version of myself. My compassion and efforts of kindness and gratitude has grown. The talks have both allowed me to accept the present, and yet work for...Read full review »

He’s a font of knowledge; a little corny sometimes, but his meditations and instructions are very helpful. Ajahn has a different approach to teaching meditation- relaxation is paramount. I love it.
Mattrrfuge via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/18
Best podcast to understand why you and others do the stupid things and continue to do more stupid things. Also how to stop this cycle.

I have been listening to Ajahn Brahm for almost 3 years now and when the podcast started it became a daily routine to listen to his talks. They calm me down, they make me laugh and they help me gain perspective. Thank you so much for everything - all of you who are sharing this on the internet.
nadineich via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 10/23/17
I listen to many podcasts but this is my first on Buddhism- and quickly became my favourite. There is so much wisdom in each easy-listening podcast. The hour seems to fly when I'm listening to his stories and jokes. He talks about the many common issues of life- stress, anxiety, relationships,...Read full review »

I was introduced to BSWA back in 2003 and downloaded talks regularly. I could not get enough! I even bought "Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung?" By Ajahn Brahm because his stories are so interesting, entertaining, and helped put things into perspective. Was very happy when his talks...Read full review »
