H.H. the Dalai Lama, the most prominent contemporary figure in Tibetan Buddhism, teaches regularly on a variety of topics ranging from entry level lectures to profound oral commentaries on seminal texts covering subjects such as Wisdom, Compassion, Ethics, Nature of the Mind, Buddhism and Science, and Meditation and Psychotherapy. His office does a great job making the teachings available through its official webcast. Now they are available in a podcast here as MP3 audio files encoded at 64Kbps mono. If you rather see video, check out the “Dalai Lama Video Teachings” podcasts (available in Standard Quality and High Quality).

His Holiness explains how the basis of reality (the two truths) and the practice of the path of wisdom and method (the two accumulations) lead to the fruit of enlightenment (the two bodies of the Buddha). To practice wisdom and method effectively, we need the power of single-pointed, focused concentration so His Holiness details the methods for developing this calm abiding meditation and its application on the path.
