Inspirational Dharma Talks - helpful archive for New Buddhists
To get straight to the point I took on board some comments from regular contributors of this forum and the fact that a thread was probably rightly dumped because someone seeking answers to basic questions on Buddhism may be discouraged by the general banter of this forum. I therefore propose this thread.
The aim is to deliver content (video or audio) to people seeking serious answers to serious questions and delivered by serious practitioners of any tradition. However, they should be capable of being understood by beginners.
There are rules, which I respectfully ask everyone to respect or their comments will be flagged for removal:
1. No verbal discussion or comments other than voting button (I suppose the lol button might be used as a disapproval button, but think how your image may be damaged before using it)
2. Dharma talks must be just that - talks about the various aspects of dharma.
3. Before you post a talk consider whether it's content has been covered in a previous one - this may require you review some of the similarly titled posts before you post. Duplication of a talk just shows that you have not considered previous posts.
4. For ease of scanning through the posts I would suggest the following format:
Title of talk
Teacher presenting the talk
A brief synopsis of the talk and what insight it provided you and may offer the beginner
Perhaps your personal comments at the end. However, the aim is for beginners to hear seasoned teachers of Buddhist dharma.
I would suggest 'meditation' and 'four noble truths' as initial introductions.
