We’re making some progress on Dhammadinna’s 1993 talk Dimensions of Refuge. I’ve got about 15 minutes of side A cleaned up to deliver to Danamaya today for transcription. I’ve already begun transcribing the rest of side A, with the understanding that Danamaya or someone else will check my transcription alongside the audio. We think it will make sense to provide the full transcript when we’re done, but only the audio parts that are really listenable.

Side B is mostly corrupt, but I’ve provided a listenable portion here. In it, Dhammadinna is describing Bhante’s qualities. At the end of the clip you can hear the degeneration of the tape start to kick in just slightly for a second or two. Once you get a taste of it, you’ll understand why the dog left the room while I was dubbing the cassette, but you’re spared the worst of it here, and can enjoy Dhammadinna’s comments on her teacher.
