You can download many talks on Buddhism by Batchelor here. I think that no Westerner has approached Buddhism with such creative flair as Batchelor. His talks are my favorite Dharma talks.
Probably my favorite Dharma film – see the Review section. You can see it in full for free at the link above.
I must say that I feel I’ve gotten a lot from these courses. There’s nothing about Buddhism, but there’s a lot about religion and philosophy. Gaining knowledge and inspiration from these first-rate speakers definitely aids one’s understanding of how to approach religion and sociology critically. I would recommend in particular the courses on the Old and New Testament, Milton, the Middle Ages and Ancient Greek History.
