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. Things really get going about 23 minutes in.

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. Difficult to follow the translator. Not an enormous amount of information and wisdom provided even for the somewhat brief length of the recording.
I like listening to him speak and the translations that come after. It was relaxing for me and I don't think you can possibly get everything out of the lecture the first listen through.
Expected more of a book presentation but appreciated the unpretentious presentation.This will be listened to multiple times, distilling the ideas & plucking the pearls...
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.
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.
Someone else reading it. Not from a lecture. The audio quality was not very good. His speech pattern was not easy to follow.
His speech pattern, he spoke slowly.
His speech was not easy to follow
Say something about yourself!
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
