Useful Dhamma Talks on Youtube

Postby christopher::: » Sun Jan 10, 2010 9:57 am

I've been working with Joseph Goldstein's dhamma talks the last few months, and they've been EXTREMELY helpful. I noticed however that none of his talks are on youtube, so this past week I've been working on putting something together, excerpts from one specific talk that I'm finding to be helpful, and that I think others will find useful (and interesting), to put up there.

Satipatthana Sutta - part 32 - Factors Of Awakening: Tranquility (2008-04-11)

Does anyone know how I can contact Goldstein (or someone at IMS) to let him know I'm putting these up, to make sure he approves and gives permission?

Also, are there talks by other teachers, already over on youtube, that you would recommend?

Write to Joseph via IMS. He'll want to see/hear what it is that you put together.

Thanks for the advice, Tilt, i will do that. I created and uploaded one short video successfully. I'll send the link to IMS and ask them to forward a message to him. He might want me to remove it, add or change information on Youtube, possibly disable embedding, change the images, etc.

Here's how it looks/sounds embedded.



I had to use a different image for each minute to keep track of where I was in the project, but after creating each one I can go back and change it to maintain just one simple image.

Best listened to with your eyes closed anyway, lol...

There is a group on youtube called Dhammatube, that posts videos of monks giving dhamma talks and the like. Another person you should look up is Ajahn Brahmali (Or just Brahm.) He posts his One hour dhamma talk every Friday I believe. They are also available for free on iTunes as podcasts as well.

My teacher has this series of videos on youtube.

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

I am putting together a theater of general Buddhist videos at

http://avery.morrow.name/awake/buddhatube

Please keep an eye out for me for any excellent dhamma videos on YouTube. I will add the ones already listed here.

:namaste:

edit: Dhammatube has a LOT of videos! It will take me a few days to pick out which ones to put on my site.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Dhamma Tube http://www.youtube.com/user/dhammatube
These clips show a lot of the sometimes raw inside of the world of meditation practice. Many clips are autobiographical experiences with meditation, meditation techniques or meditation teachers, some take stands on controversial points. While some of the people interviewed are well-known teachers, many are unknown publicly.
