A discussion on all aspects of Theravāda Buddhism
Do you friends know some sites with good Dhamma talks. I've been listening to Thannissaro Bhikkhu, who else is good to listen?

Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

These Dhamma talks of Than Acharn Maha Boowa have been translated by a Thai Bhikkhu into English.
“Tasmātihānanda, attadīpā viharatha attasaraṇā anaññasaraṇā, dhammadīpā dhammasaraṇā anaññasaraṇā.”
"Sen vuoksi Ananda, ole saari itsellesi, ole turva itsellesi, eläkä etsi muuta turvaa. Pidä dhammaa saarenasi, turvaudu ainoastaan dhammaan, eläkä mihinkään muuhun"
— Maha-parinibbana Sutta: Last Days of the Buddha (DN16)

Talks by monastic and lay Theravadin meditation teachers
What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.
SN I, 38.
Níl sa saol seo ach ceo
There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.
