Dharma Discourses

eeee

Of the many branches of Buddhism today, it is Theravada that includes the traditional Vipassana Meditation techniques taught by Guatama Buddha. Typically once a year, a seeker would go on a meditation retreat for days, weeks, or months of intensive practice. In the evenings, “discourses” or “dharma talks” would be given by a senior teacher – often a monk or nun. Dharma discourses are a conversation: Conversation with the wisdom of a past tradition, spoken from the heart of these nuns and monks who are transmitting not a religion but ‘methods’ that enable a person to evolve to their full potential as a human being.

In reading Dharma discourses, I received the most benefits either during self retreats, or in normal daily work routine situations, to put everything aside at the same time each evening, light a candle, meditate or do some yoga, maybe a bath, and really settle the mind/body.  I dive into reading of the wisdoms being transmitted through printed media.

Below are two collections of dharma discourses. There are thousands more available

The first set was given nightly over a ten day meditation retreat. The second is a series of four talks given weekly during a month long retreat.
