  2. Dear Rev. Bridge,

    Thank you for spreading the Dharma coast to coast with your recent visit to Ekoji Buddhist Temple. I have never been truly grateful for how your podcast and website do not truly reveal your pleasant interpersonal engagement which goes a long way in teaching the Dharma. It was a pleasure to meet you in person. Thank you for your visit!

  3. Just want to thank you both for the podcasts. I’ve been listening to some of the much older recordings again. Truly wonderful dialogue.
