Talks by Stephen Batchelor

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.

Amongst White Clouds Movie

Probably my favorite Dharma film – see the Review section.  You can see it in full for free at the link above.

Yale Open University Courses

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.
