The All - talk on the six sense spheres by Joseph Goldstein

The All

"Investigating the sense spheres as the basis for understanding everything we know and how we know it." Dhamma talk given on April 10, 2012 at Insight Meditation Society's Forest Refuge.

This is probably one of the best Dhamma talks I've come across so far. This talk will be on repeat on my Ipod for days.

I am larger and better than I thought. I did not know I held so much goodness.

downloaded, thanks. Joseph Goldstein rules.

I've just listened to it. Very simple and clear, a really well-balanced mix of Suttas and practical advice. I've downloaded it and will be listening again.

Many thanks for sharing this with us.

Joseph's new talks are really good. I haven't gotten around to studying the suttas so I really appreciate hearing the teachings explained in clear, simple and practical ways.

Yes, I've really appreciated that talks from him are being posted again, after quite a long gap...

Hi Mike,

Yeah I think he went on a sabbatical last year. It sounds like he learned a lot during his self-retreat.
