Listening to the Dalai Lama is both difficult and rewarding. While his accented English takes a while to get used to, his teachings, for those interested in Buddhism, especially the Tibetan tradition, are essential. This recording, made at the Beacon Theater in New York, is of better quality than many of his recorded talks, allowing listeners to follow more easily. In some parts the Dalai Lama speaks, and in other parts an interpreter translates his words. In this three-hour talk, the Dalai Lama uses humor and wit to explain the basics of Buddhism and the rudiments of Buddhist practice. This is an invaluable recording.
