On Day 10 of our 12 Days of FBA fundraising event we offer you another two absolutely excellent unreleased talks from the Free Buddhist Audio archives!

The main talk is a very special recording of Sangharakshita in a talk given to the European Chairs’ Assembly in 2009 called “The Teachers of the Past”. Sangharakshita makes clear his intentions around the creation of a Refuge Tree for the Western Buddhist Order, specifically drawing a distinction between the inspirational value of historical Buddhist figures and their actual teachings.

Our second talk comes from Vajragita and is entitled “What a Mess”. She gives a beautiful, insightful, humorous and personal talk about dukkha (suffering) and some of the ways we can respond to it practically. A down-to-earth and thoroughly enjoyable listen!

Did you know that this is just the tip of the iceberg for unreleased talks in the Free Buddhist Audio archive? There are many more talks that are stored on hard drives, waiting for editing and release. And many, many more that still exist on tape that still need to be digitized! And the archive is always changing - new talks from the community are continually coming in that need to be edited and mastered for release.

In order to do the work involved in getting these archives released we need to be able to bring our existing team members full-time and bring on more people.  And in order to make that happen, we need your support and donations!

Make your regular monthly or one-off donation today and help us to make the rest of the archive accessible for all online! Thank you!
