Dalai Lama: Introduction to Buddhism | [His Holiness the Dalai Lama]

Dalai Lama: Introduction to Buddhism

When the Dalai Lama paid a visit to Emory University, he offered an introductory lecture to Tibetan Buddhism. The lecture is not exactly what you’d normally get in the university classroom. The talk is not entirely linear. And he spends some time speaking in English, then speaks in his native tongue (with the help of an interpreter). But, he can talk about Buddhism with the authority that few authors can, and there’s a reason audiences come to see him in droves.

    "A great talk on Buddhism"

    Here we listen to the Dalai Lama talk about Buddhism and it's history. We learn that the Dalai Lama has a great sense of humor and doesn't care where anyone comes from. Its a good thing that he had a translator available to him because he does struggle with english. Here we learn about the Tibetan Buddhism and their basic believes. Here we also learn why the Tibetans have never translated their teachings verbatim into english. This is a great talk to listen too.

    "Poor sound quality"

    Poor sound. Difficult to follow the translator. Not an enormous amount of information and wisdom provided even for the somewhat brief length of the recording.

    "nearly unintelligible - don't waste your time"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I listened to this lecture 3 times. It is only a little over an hour. It is incoherent and unintelligible. I would recommend against a purchase.

    "Understated Excelence"
    What did you love best about Dalai Lama: Introduction to Buddhism?

    Expected more of a book presentation but appreciated the unpretentious presentation.This will be listened to multiple times, distilling the ideas & plucking the pearls...


    What other book might you compare Dalai Lama: Introduction to Buddhism to and why?

    This is a casual talk to a group of followers. Not quite a Sermon on the Mount but certainly definite kernels that will grow with further audits.

    "wife again"

    no wonder i never have any credits left? who can say a bad word about the Dalai lama. His Excellency is the cats ass! I would dislike the Chineese 50% less if they didnt convince the entire population that the Buddhist Tibetans proved them into taking over their county. Because Tibet is some choice real estate. you need breathing oxygen to get half way there.The Chinese propaganda machine has convinced the population that 7 years in Tibet is all lies. Its a true story written by a german climber. just ask brad
