Teacher and translator Ken McLeod and Tricycle Contributing Editor Richard Eskow got acquainted at the 2011 Buddhist Geeks Conference in Los Angeles. (In 2012, the conference will be in Boulder.) They enjoyed their talks so much that they decided to meet up after the conference and continue talking, and they were gracious enough to share it with us. Part 3 of their conversation is below.

In this third and final installment, they discuss the idea of “the enemy.” As Ken McLeod says, “We regard someone as an enemy when they elicit in us feelings that we cannot tolerate.”

Listen to Part 1 and Part 2 of this discussion.
