Welcome to Dharma Seed, dedicated to preserving and sharing the spoken teachings of Theravada Buddhism in modern languages. Explore and take nourishment from these heartfelt teachings.
Since the early 1980's, Dharma Seed has collected and distributed dharma talks by teachers transmitting the Vipassana or Insight practices of Theravada Buddhism, the oldest Buddhist tradition still actively pursued in the 21st century.
Until now, the recordings have been available only on tapes and CDs. For the first time, this website makes them freely available for download or streaming as digital audio files (MP3s). New recordings are being added continuously from contemporary dharma teachers, both those well-known and those still known only to those who have attended their retreats.
May all beings find true liberation from suffering.
We are a small non-profit organization supported through your donations. We deeply appreciate your help in making these priceless teachings available to all who need them. You will also find opportunities on this site to support the teachers themselves through dana, the practice of generosity that has supported the teachings for 2,500 years.
