The 12 Days of FBA: 5,000 Talks and Counting!

The 12 Days of FBA: 5,000 Talks and Counting!

Our gift to you, now and all year round, is over 5,000 talks that are free to access, from an ever-widening circle of practitioners on topics ranging from mindfulness to early Buddhism to the Bodhisattva Ideal to the environment to Zen and the art of living well. You’ll find thoughtful reflections, experienced instruction around meditation and ethics, and always beautifully considered responses to what’s happening in the world around us. You’ll meet beings of many kinds, opening up their lives with grace, compassion, energy, and wisdom.

The team behind Free Buddhist Audio are deeply inspired by the Buddha Ratnasambhava, whose wisdom manifests in supreme giving to everyone equally. Associated with this great golden Buddha are the wish-fullfilling gem that relieves all sorrows, and the windhorse, who carries the Three Jewels on its back. In our way we like to think of FBA on the Internet just like that: giving precious wisdom to everyone who seeks it, with the strength and speed of the wind.

If you love the Dharma and appreciate what we do to bring it to everyone for free online, please support us now with a donation. We’ll put it to great use in the world! Give the gift of the Dharma for 2020 – help us keep this treasure trove of Dharma Jewels abundantly flowing for the benefit of all beings.
