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.
