If you've ever waited forever for your files to download from a slow connection, or been cut off mid-way through a download -- or just can't keep track of your ever-growing downloads -- you need to download FlashGet as some of the files here can be quite big. If you are cut off mid-way when downloading, FlashGet will help you continue on from where you get cut off.
Technical issue aside, here in the Audio section, we are trying to create an environment where one can get access to many talks from the Suttas and Dhamma in general. The Buddha called his disciples savakas (listeners or hearers), stressing the importance of listening to the Suttas.
In the Anguttara Nikaya 5.202, the five advantages of hearing the Dhamma are enumerated. One of them is the attainment of Right View. Clearly, listening to the Dhamma is one of the conditions that supports liberation.
Bhante Dhammavuddho Thero has spent many long of hours in investigating the Suttas, preparing them and presenting them in Dhamma talks. And these talks are now available to you here in the Audio section in various languages.
The list of talks did not just happen, they were accumulated slowly throughout many years ---- some as far back as the late 1980s. In those days, devotees religiously taped them in cassettes. Later, hundreds of hours were spent in converting them into CDs and into MP3 format. One person even spent almost full time doing the conversion after he resigned from his job.
Should you find any of the Audio files not working as you download, please click onto Feedback and let us know the specifics (i.e the title and language of the talk) and we will endeavour to rectify it. We appreciate your feedback.
It is hoped that these talks will deepen our understanding of the Dhamma, and we thank everyone who have helped in one way or another to make this possible.
