List of recorded dharma talks: Please add!

Postby dimeo » Sat Dec 07, 2013 10:56 pm

I was just thinking wouldn't it be great if we all regularly contribute to a mega list of our favourite recorded online dharma talks? There's just simply TONS of videos and audio recorded and shared online. We could each add a link and a short summary or review of the talk we're recommending from a good teacher.

Here I'll start:

"Turning Pain Into the Path" by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche - April 13, 2010.
When life gets difficult, one can easily become lost in agitation and confusion and feel helpless or hopeless. Yet, these uncomfortable experiences can also be used as a doorway to inner peace, to a sense of clarity and completeness. In this talk Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche explains how you can transform your pain into a path of personal development.

I downloaded the PlayerFM app on my phone, and they have a ton of sermons given by a particular (Theravadin) center in California. It's a great resource for beginners of the western persuasion :P

I've always enjoyed Rev Kusula's talks on urban dharma. Org. I don't agree with everything he says but he is still a good listen.

Sorry for the necro post...
The guy that really got me to start practicing Buddhism seriously is a huge fan of Rev Kusula. He really appreciates Rev Kusula's knack for presenting the teachings in a straightforward style, using language that's easy to understand. I downloaded all his podcasts that were available at the time. I liked him at first, but once he got beyond the introductory teachings and got a little deeper into doctrinal matters, let's just say I was less than pleased with what he had to say. In fact, after roughly 30 episodes of his podcast, I just couldn't listen to him any more. One of the most flagrant examples I can think of was his treatment of Rev Noriaki Ito in a one-on-one interview. Any time Rev Ito started to talk about interpreting the teachings of his school subjectively in order to apply them to his life (being influenced by certain Western Theologians), Kusula would cut him off. Any time Rev Ito got into Mahayana doctrine, Kusula would cut him off. Throughout the podcast series, he makes a bunch of statements that are pretty dismissive of the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions. That was pretty surprising to hear coming from a Thien (Zen) monk. He's pretty much Thien in name (and meditation practice) only. Doctrinally, he's an unabashed Theravadan. Have no clue why he didn't/doesn't take Theravadan Bhikkhu vows instead (though I think the less-strict nature of his Thien vows probably explains it). I know I probably should keep quiet on this issue (especially given your statement on not agreeing with everything he says), but I don't know that I could in good conscience recommend him to anybody interested in learning more about Mahayana/Vajrayana teachings. A lot of things he says (after the basic introductory information) are likely to cause more doubt and confusion than good, I know they certainly did for me.

I really enjoy Khandro Rinpoche's talks:

A foolish man proclaims his qualifications,
A wise man keeps them secret within.
A straw floats on the surface of water,
But a precious gem placed upon it sinks to the depths

Note that, in the higher tantras, there is talk of a self and an I, even though in the lower teachings the absence of self and the absence of I is what is always proclaimed. - Tony Duff

I suppose you're right, that's my mistake. I like his talks but then I've studied enough to know if he says something that is more personal interpretation than anything.

City of Ten Thousand Buddha's recorded dharma talks are great. I also enjoy listening to the "audio book" versions of Master Hua's teachings.

Sravasti Abbey has a youtube channel with tons of talks, both short (10 minutes or so) and longer (an hour or more). Most are by Venerable Thubten Chodron, but some are by other nuns at the abbey or visiting teachers.
