The Listen Page
Welcome to MSB's Listen Page. We are delighted to have the opportunity to share the teachings of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche and the Mangala Shri Bhuti lineage with you, in both live and recorded formats. Here you can register for the weekly live LINK teachings, download talks from the Foundational Teachings series, or listen to guided meditations on "arousing bodhicitta." We also have a wealth of Dharma teachings available through the MSB Store, where you can peruse the "Recommended Teaching Sets," perfect for beginners and experienced practitioners alike; access the recordings archive; or find other specially selected teaching sets and talks.
Many of MSB's programs are streamed live and are open to the public. To find out more, visit the MSB Store.
Every Sunday, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, Dungse Jampal Norbu, or a senior MSB student offers a live-streamed talk at 10:00 am Mountain Time (USA), open to the public free of charge. To register for The LINK or view the upcoming schedule, visit the MSB LINK site.
Talks available for download on the Foundational Teachings page address basic Buddhist topics such as loving kindness, our universal longing for happiness, an overview of the mind's natural capacity, and an introduction to the egolessness of self. We are pleased to offer these teachings free of charge.
The recordings offered on the Guided Meditation page introduce the basic techniques for shamatha meditation and contemplations on the Four Immeasurables. Rinpoche has emphasized these two practices as the starting point of the path, and of one's daily practice as well. These recordings are designed to support students of all levels in their personal daily meditation practice. We are pleased to offer these teachings free of charge.
Three sets of additional Recommended Teachings are offered to the public through the MSB Store, where you can read detailed descriptions of each set. These teachings cover a variety of topics chosen especially to provide students with an in-depth look at guiltlessness and shenpa, generating bodhicitta, lojong or mind training, and the basic tenets of the Buddhist philososphy of Madhyamika.
