"New" Dharma Study

Following on from Ken's suggestion that we go back and have a look at the Four Noble Truths & Eightfold Path I've put my favourite talk on the above onto the "Dharma Studies" page. I'm trying something different in that the link will play automatically in your Media player.

This talk is by Steve Armstrong, who has studied the dhamma and practised insight meditation since 1975. He was a monk for five years in Burma under the guidance of Sayadaw U Pandita where he undertook intensive, silent practice of insight and lovingkindness meditations. He studied the Buddhist psychology (abhidhamma) with Sayadaw U Zagara in Australia and presents it in practical and easily understood terms. He continues his practice under the guidance of Sayadaw U Tejaniya at the Shwe Oo Min Meditation Center in Rangoon. He lives on Maui and has been leading meditation retreats internationally since 1990.


  1. Stumbled across your site and saw your links to the 4 Nobel Truths. For what it's worth, one of the best lectures on the internet on this subject (IMO) is a 4-part series by the Dalai Lama on YouTube. Go to YouTube and search for "Dalai Lama - The Four Noble Truths." Then sit back and enjoy.

  2. Thanks for that one, I've put these talks up in the Video Bar at the top right of this blog.
