Traveling a lot this weekend? Long drive, plane or train ride? You can use that transit time to listen to the Dalai Lama talk for more than four hours with neuroscientists and Buddhist scholars on the topic of craving, suffering and choice. Part one. Part two. [iTunes links] If you're stuck at home, you can watch the video. The video link has the full list of participants.

iTunes U has some seriously great free (as in beer) material.

WTF "iTunes links"?? Are you also inviting me to Thanksgiving dinner in your EasyBake oven? "Seriously great."

I'd much rather watch this on a long trip.

What's an 'itunes'? Firefox can't open link. WTF? Some kind of proprietary BS?

erm...I don't understand the murmurs of discontent.

the link is precisely what Kattullus says, as far as eye can tell.

I also use Firefox, have an iTunes account, the podcasts are free.

If you click on the links you will automatically be redirected to iTunes. Download what you want, and there's yr mp3, or, obviously, you can then upload them to yr iPod or whatever.

maybe my humor radar is off?

of course if you simply just don't dig on the Lama why even look at this link?


anyway, sweet find.

I'm with anthill, gum and Goofyy. This would be a good post if there were mp3 links. iTunes? Dude trhat sos aweosme!

Thanks homunculus for that news, fascinating.

Dawson: Actually, I clicked the link, and got some message saying there was no associated application (Ubuntu). The one time I tried to go to the itunes site, it wouldn't allow me because I was in South Africa. So, I am actually ignorant of how this should or should not work.

Assuming that it is, indeed, some proprietary format, I am disturbed that His Holiness would limit the distribution of his message to such a format. I am disturbed that an itunes account would be required.

Oh, and I am, in fact, quite interested in hearing what he has to say, so cut the nasty attitude and acquire some compassion.

why does he allow everyone to always refer to him as "his holiness"? Buddhists are supposed to be humble.

forgive me Goofyy. my selfish self broke dharma and brought discord to the sangha. my samsara longs not for nirviana, but for bodhichitta, or perhaps it was an obscuration. I apologize for my lack of empathy, yet rejoice that your theurang has reveled a rare cosmic karmic opportunity for my allusive ana.
Hollywood is persecuting me, you see.
