Buddhist scholar and Chaplain Danny Fisher, joins us to explore various stories, or narratives, that run through the Buddhist world. There are a variety of different kind of stories in the Buddhist tradition, including those that are more traditional and those which are more modern. Included in those narratives are Buddhist hagiographies (traditional teaching stories about important figures), historical narratives, and more modern narratives. Listen in as we try and piece apart what some of these stories are, and find out how the stories that we believe in affect us as individuals and communities.

Buddhist Geeks 213: The Stories We Tell Ourselves (w/ Rev. Danny Fisher)
In this week's Buddhist Geeks podcast, Vince interviews the hardest working Buddhist blogger around - Reverend Danny Fisher. I have had the pleasure and good fortune to interact with Danny online over the years - he's a wonderful human being who, to me, embodies the Buddhist path of compassion and humility. Strangely, I think this is the first time I have heard his voice.
