Very good way to start your day
I have been playing these lectures and meditation sessions most mornings on the way to work and I have found them a wonderful way to start the day. If you're interested in Buddhism or meditation, do yourself a favor and check these out.
Yes... this is profound!
Gil is such a great speaker and they have wonderful, insightful guests too. If you are interested in Buddhism, you should give this a listen. ...peace...
Priceless Medicine for those who may need it...
I would like to thank Audio Dharma for their contribution to this world. This may not be for everyone, especially those who live in bondage to fear or xenophobia, but for open minded folks who are searching for order out of the chaos of the world, this program is priceless. Those of you who are just browsing may think that the speakers might sound too hippy-ish or new age, but in fact they are just stating the facts of human existence.
