Excellent online resource for Colloquial Tibetan

Postby JKhedrup » Sun May 25, 2014 7:32 am

In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Some of the speakers have terrible Chinese accents.

there are none not included in the dimension of the knowledge of the Great Perfection.

For the stories that go along with the cartoons, I agree with you. It is like the XZTV channel. However, I thought those probably wouldn't be of interest to most people here, as they are not really beginner level, but at the same time people with a good basis would probably want to listen to something else.

However, the pronunciation of the letters, numbers, simple words (http://www.dhumra.com/family/) and the recorded stories without the cartoons is excellent. The recorded children's stories are easy to understand and read very slowly, so would be great for anyone with an intermediate level. You can find those on this part of the site: http://www.dhumra.com/music-stories/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I propose the site for people really starting at the very beginning with the alphabet and interested in learning basic words for the most part. Thought intermediate level students will enjoy the "Music Stories" section I think.
