Does anyone know of a good sangha that video broadcasts services on the Internet?

ktc2ktc2 R'lyeh New

I am located in a place where there is no sangha within about 150 miles. Can anyone recommend a sangha that broadcasts its services over the Internet so I can watch from home? I'm new to Buddhism and am looking for a place to learn, even if I can't be there in person.

    There are countless podcasts on youtube; which tradition do you follow, or do you wish to 'spread your options'...?

    I can't personally think, or know, of any sangha that does 'live' broadcasts, but there are very many different teachings available as videos, if that's any help...

    There's also a really good website if you'd like to explore Theravada teachings, called AccesstoInsight. The font of information there is literally virtually bottomless...

  • Tibetan gelug the knowledge base on Buddhism and Asian classics institutes email them on online teaching.

    My geshe has a past the founder but is a good teacher

    Even if you are not particularly drawn to Theravāda Buddhism, I would second Federica's suggestion. AccesstoInsight & SuttaCentral IMO are the best digitized sources for authentic Buddhist scripture that I know of in English.

    You might be further interested in Śrāvastīvihāra (Shravasti Abbey), which has a wonderful web presence linked to the superb Venerable Thubten Chodron Bhikṣunī. Their YouTube page is here: https://www.youtube.com/user/sravastiabbey

    I believe Ajahn Brahm streams some of his talks live and answers questions via email from around the world in them. I don't know where to find them, but some searching should be able to find it.

    Yes, Ajahn Brahm (Theravadan tradition) live streams many talks from his Monastery in Western Australia

    And Venerable Thubten Chodron (Tibetan tradition) does the same

    https://thubtenchodron.org/live/

    Can recommend both!

  • As well as video consider audio, even if not 'live', for example:

    Maybe this helps, it's an online sangha meeting twice per month::
