His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Teachings and public talks by His Holiness can be viewed online here.


Thubten Chodron

Ven. Chodron is the founder of the newly established Sravasti Abbey, where monks and nuns will train and practice the Dharma and make the precious teachings of the Buddha available to others throughout the world. Fantastic teachings from a fantastic teacher. Highly recommended.


Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archives

The Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive (LYWA) is the collected works of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Kyabje Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche. The Archive was founded in 1996 by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, its spiritual director, to make available in various ways the teachings it contains. Distribution of free booklets of edited teachings is one of those ways.


Lam Rim Radio

This web site hosts many free audio files of teachings given by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama and other formidable teachers. These are great to record on CD's for your listening enjoyment to and from work. From this site you can also access Lam Rim TV


Teachings from Kurukulla Center for Tibetan Studies

Excellent site includes live broadcasts of many teachings as well as an archive of downloadable files.


Asian Classics Institutes

An effort to make a comprehensive course of Buddhist studies more readily accessible world wide. Classes are available on-line. Classes include all the written material, complete lectures, homework, quizzes, and exams for those who wish to complete a certificate. In keeping with the tradition that the Dharma should be offered at no cost, all courses are completely free. CAUTION: Since the Guru is so important in Tibetan Buddhism, it is recommended that one examine their teachers thoroughly before studying under them. Geshe Michael Roach is a very controversial figure. Examine the situation and make up your own mind before embarking on study under him or any other teacher.


Berzin Archives

excellent source for all things Tibetan Buddhist.

I. Alexander Berzin, born in 1944 in Paterson, New Jersey, received his B.A. degree in 1965 from the Department of Oriental Studies, Rutgers University in conjunction with Princeton University; and his M.A. in 1967 and Ph.D. in 1972 from the Departments of Far Eastern Languages (Chinese) and Sanskrit and Indian Studies, Harvard University. From 1969 to 1998, he resided primarily in Dharamsala, India, initially as a Fulbright Scholar, studying and practicing with masters from all four Tibetan Buddhist traditions. His main teacher was Tsenzhab Serkong Rinpoche, the late Master Debate Partner and Assistant Tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He served as his interpreter and secretary for nine years, accompanying him on several world tours. He has also served as occasional Dharma interpreter for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
