Dalai Lama: Introduction to Buddhism

Publisher's Summary

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.

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.
