By: 5 Minute Dharma
The 5 Minute Dharma podcast launched on December 3, 2012 and has seen tremendous growth. With over 65,000 total downloads in 2013, 5 Minute Dharma was one of the fastest growing Buddhist podcasts of 2013. It looks like that trend will continue in 2014.
5 Minute Dharma is designed to be a simple, non-scholarly introduction to Buddhism. Therefore technical words are kept to a minimum, and when they are used they are explained in everyday English. This goal of keeping it simple matches the goal of keeping it practical.
5 Minute Dharma is available not only on computers, but also on tablets, smart phones, and Internet TV. You can find it in almost every directory, including iTunes, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, TuneIn, Blubrry, Miro, and YouTube.
Dr. Jay N. Forrest is the host and producer of the 5 Minute Dharma Podcast. Jay is a non-sectarian Buddhist teacher and practitioner who has been trained in both Zen and Vipassana meditation practices. Jay has hosted a number of podcasts, including the Linux User Podcast and the Gnostic Podcast.
