Dhamma Talks

Study is an art. To paint a portrait an artist must have both the intention and the training. So too it is with study. We can meditate, but without study and the practice of virtue, any wisdom that arises will be rootless. To best understand the Buddha’s teachings one is assisted by practice and study done with patience and engagement. 
Meditation practice has a number of distinct techniques as does study. Below is a list of Dhamma Talks which when listened to and then combined with reading, discussion, reflection, and meditation practice will help to weave a more reliable inter-relationship between all areas of the mind.
