What’s a Dharmabyte, you ask? Why, it’s a little bite-sized piece of Dharma! A pithy few minutes from one of over a thousand full-length Dharma talks in the Dharmachakra digital archives. Hand-selected by our team twice a week, they’re great for inspiring, reminding and sharing with friends. And, as ever, it’s all completely free!

Subscribe to our Dharmabytes Podcast to receive these Dharma-jewels twice weekly - every Monday & Thursday - The Gift of the Dharma – delivered wherever you are!

Take a Dharmabyte with you on the train, in the car, on your daily walk. Digest it with your breakfast, sip it with your morning coffee or tea. Pass it on to others… These little nuggets are sure to inspire meaningful reflections throughout the day.

This week we offer “When Reality Knocks on the Door” a Dharmabyte selection from the talk “What is Enlightenment?” by Jinapriya. This is a quietly passionate talk on the quicksilver nature of the Enlightenment experience – impossible to pin down, utterly transformative. When Reality knocks at the door are we able to own painful experience and surrender?

As well as a classic from Sangharakshita, circa 1966: “Come and See for Yourself,” an excerpt from the talk “Introducing Buddhism” delivered to teacher-training students. Here, Sangharakshita explores tolerance and the freedom to grow and shows that there is no place for God in Buddhism. The full talk serves as an excellent general introduction to Buddhism.

At Free Buddhist Audio we are passionately committed to maintaining free access to our talks, so that you and other practitioners can tune into the Dharma whenever you want, wherever you are, for as long as you like. We’d like that to be the case for generations to come…
