"Meditation in the Tibetan Tradition: The View, The Path, and the Result" Public Talk by Dr G. T. Halkias Halkias 「藏傳佛教禪修:理解、途徑與成果」黑爾其亞士博士公開講座

Tibetan Buddhism is characterized by a diverse corpus of contemplative practices that draws from over one thousand years of Indian historical developments in Buddhist philosophical discourse and experimentation with contemplative techniques. In order to offer a general and useful overview of meditations this lecture will resort to emic categories of classification in order to come to appreciate how Tibetan scholars and practitioners have organized and understood the rich Buddhist heritage they have inherited. 西藏佛教取自印度超過一千年佛教哲學話語及禪修實踐歷史發展之多樣禪修實踐文集。

The Way to obtain Benefits through Practice of Buddhism - Public Talk by Ven. Prof. N. Gnanaratana Thero

It is recorded that at the end of Buddha's first sermon, many beings including five ascetics had been able to realise the truth. This indicates that even the first sermon was enough to get the final result of practicing Buddhism. Today, many people spend thousands of hours in reading books and listening to sermons but seem to achieve no intended advancement. This talk discusses what is wrong and shows guidance for right practice.
