"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.

Changes to Resources layout

Now that we have completed our look at the Brahma Viharas I've taken the opportunity to reorganise the various Study Resources hosted on the site.

Firstly there is now a new "page" where I have archived the talks on the Brahma Viharas. The intention is to do this for all subsequent courses and indeed to post materials for the "current" course here as well. I have also moved the downloadable Meditation Timers and the link for the Dharma Talks Catalogue to this page.

So from now on just click on the "Resources" link under "Dharma Studies" at the top of the left hand Green Column.
