Best Dharma Talks

Postby sattva » Thu Nov 12, 2009 7:37 pm

Hi all!
I have a question. Because of my eyesight or lack there of, i find reading difficult. i do enjoying downloading and listening to Dharma talks. What teachers do you think give great Dharma talks? Although this is in the Discovering Theravada forum, i am open to all traditions. Who is your favorite teacher to listen to?

Hi Sattva!
Have you discovered Bhikkhu Bodhi's Majjhima Nikaya lectures?
http://www.bodhimonastery.net/courses/MN/MN_course.html

They go with the suttas in the Majjhima Nikaya but if you didn't want to read them, they would stand on their own.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

'I strongly recommend the talk titled The Insulting Truth...It certainly spoke to me anyway. ( from Ajahn Munindo's list ).

I find Gil Fronsdal's talks to be very good.

You can find a full list of all his talks here:
