Thanks Fuji, I do enjoy listening to Ajahn! or HHAA as they call him in the talk :)

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

I wanted to burn it to a CD, but the message I get is that it is too large.

Any ideas?

It's more than 80 minutes, so you'll have to burn it into 2 CD's.
Thank you for the link.

Here you can find many talks of Ajahn Amaro
http://www.audiodharma.org/teacher/5/

And here, in the amaravati website, there are also many of them, but they are not properly 'ordained' but author.
