The Great Buddhist Blog Swap. ~ via J.A. Pappas

Buddha Toy

Today, the below blows will feature a new writer from a different Buddhist (or yoga) blogger.  Our hope is to exhange ideas and to see the Dharma through someone else’s eyes. Since we usually post from our own sphere of comfort and tend to get complacent, letting someone else run the show for a while puts the ego into the backseat where it belongs.

Feel free to peruse the mindfulness with the links below.

Here are the participants:

Nate at Precious Metal writing for Justin at American Buddhist

Adam at Dharma Brewing writing for Marnie at Enlightenment Ward on Spiritual Tourism and Commercialism

Jon at Be Compassion writing for at C4Chaos

Danny at Rev. Danny Fisher writing for Richard at My Buddha Is Pink

Justin at American Buddhist writing for Danny at Rev. Danny Fisher

Marcus at Marcus Journal writing for John at Zen Dirt Zen Dust on Buddhist Self-help.

Dwan at Budding Buddhist writing for Genju at 108 Zen Books

Genju at 108 Zen Books writing for Nate at Precious Metal on Sustaining Practice

Marnie at Enlightenment Ward writing for Dwan at Budding Buddhist

Jonh at Zen Dirt Zen Dust writing for Rohan at 21 Awake on the surprising results of Zen practice

Rohan at 21 Awake writing for Adam at Dharma Brewing

Shane at Zenfant writing for Marcus at Marcus Journal

Richard at My Buddha Is Pink writing for Shane at Zenfant

Jaye at DigitalZENDO writing for Marguerite at Mind Deep

Marguerite at Mind Deep writing for Jaye at DigitalZENDO

Also keep a look-out for Kyle at The Reformed Buddhist, since I believe there may be a post waiting there in all of its profane glory. Also, check in with Nate over at Precious Metal Blog since this was his glorious idea and you should let him know how awesome it is.

  1. Thanks, John.

    Your blog lists are very interesting to me because, while Yoga will always be my thing, I want to become more familiar with Buddhism as well. And I'm finding that my Buddhist friends (both cyber and neighborhood) are often interested in learning more about ancient Yoga philosophy as well.

    Not surprisingly the two are actually most similar at their point of inception–the time of Buddha and Patanjali. In fact the most recent interpretation of the Yoga Sutras I read, by Chip Hartranft, who is also expert in Buddhism, suggests that the Buddhist-like nature of the Yoga Sutra has been masked somewhat by later translations and commentaries that were written to conform to later Tantric and Hatha Yoga influences.

    In addition, of course, Yoga and Buddhism have influenced each other back and forth throughout their histories, continuing right down to today.
