A Dharma talk is a teaching on Buddhism by a Buddhist teacher. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh tells us: "A Dharma talk must always be appropriate in two ways: it must accord perfectly with the spirit of the Dharma and it must also respond perfectly to the situation in which it is given. If it only corresponds perfectly with the teachings but does not meet the needs of the listeners, it's not a good Dharma talk; it's not appropriate."
We are fortunate to have many wonderful recorded Dharma talks from our teacher Fred Eppsteiner, available both on YouTube (2013 forward) and on audio. On these "Dharma Talks" pages, all talks (both individual topics as well as talk series) are listed chronologically from newest to oldest. As well, each is coded based on which of the three paths of practice (described in the FCM Study & Practice Guide) it most closely relates to. An introductory talk from Fred about the Guide can be found using this link.
Fred has offered many series of talks on a wide range of Buddhist topics, such as the Anapanasati Sutra, Shantideva's teachings on the Path of the Bodhisattva, the life of Milarepa, teachings from Zen Master Lin Chi, and many more. Please click here to visit the Dharma Talk Series page where you'll find a listing by topic of all series talks.
