I'm sure many of you know about these already, but I just found them on Plum Village's under-renovation website. There are several talks by Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh from a variety of locations, including his most recent trip to Viet Nam.

Karma Kagyu Teachings

Here's another fairly extensive collection of Dharma writings. Without getting into the controversy over the 17th Karmapa, I will say that these interesting teachings are from the Karma Kagyu lineage. Topics include everything from prostrations to taking refuge in the Three Jewels to The 6 Paramitas.

FPMT Radio

"FPMT Radio broadcasts an ongoing series of Tibetan Buddhist teachings presented by FPMT teachers throughout the world, 24 hours a day. The teachings are streamed over the Internet in MP3 format and accessible to most computers with a dial up modem connection or better."

"FPMT Radio is accessible as a streaming radio station under the Religious section within Apple's iTunes. Click here ... to download the free software available for both Windows and Macintosh computers."

You can also download teachings from teachers including: Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Lama Thubten Yeshe, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Ven. Rene Feusi, Ven. Ribur Rinpoche, Ven. Robina Courtin, Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche and Ven. Sarah Thresher.

In addition, you can also download Module 1: Mind and its Potential from the FPMT's Discovering Buddhism at Home series.

Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive

Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive, if you've not been there, has a tremendous number of resources available online. You can browse their collection of teachings, including those of Lama Thubten Yeshe, Teachings by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as well as teachings by other great masters of our time. You can also browse selected teachings by topic. There are other resources available, including an online recordings library with various audio recordings available, as well as information on their podcasts. They also have printed books you can order (free or at reasonable cost) and DVDs, CDs and videos. And if you're so inclined there are also pictures of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, as well as higher quality pics of Lama Yeshe you can order.

Online Dharma in the Gelugpa Tradition

Ran across some audio teachings sponsored by the Kadampa Center of Raleigh, NC. They vary in topic from beginning Buddhism discussions, to the wisdom of emptiness. In addition, there are two written dharma lessons - one .pdf on The 10 Non-Virtues by Ven. Sangye Khadro, and also "How to Buy a Buddhist Statue," available in HTML or .pdf format tri-fold brochure.

Online Buddhist Library!

Found via BuddhaDharmaMum, a fantastic link to a wonderful consolidated collection of Dharma resources. Check it out!

Dharma Sounds Resource

From BuddhaDharmaMum, a blog called Buddhist Sounds, which is lovely in it's simplicity - it's purely a collection of video embeds of Buddhist music and chants, with brief commentary where it's helpful. Very nice.
