DVD by Mystic Fire
April 02, 2002
..."This set of four videos collects a series of lectures on the Four Noble Truths given by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama in 1997 in England. The lectures were a landmark event, bringing together for the first time in the West a nonsectarian Buddhist and lay audience for over six hours of emotional and intellectually challenging engagement with these central teachings of the Buddhist canon. The impressive intellect and scholarship of His Holiness is everywhere evident in these tapes as he traverses the expansive body of Buddhist scriptures and commentaries. One also catches glimpses of his mischievous sense of humor and, of course, his inspiring compassion."

DVD by Wellspring
220 minutes
July 02, 2002
Take refuge in the three jewels, the three precious gems: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. The Buddha means the teacher of enlightenment; the Dharma means the teaching, enlightenment itself. It means reality, nirvana, which is reality--that's the nice thing, that actual reality is the goal. The Sangha is the community through history of beings who are trying to implement the Dharma, who are trying themselves to become buddhas." Robert A.F. Thurman is professor of Indo-Tibetan studies in the Department of Religion at Columbia University and one of the West's foremost scholars of Tibetan Buddhism. He is the translator of The Tibetan Book of the Dead and the author of Inner Revolution and Circling the Sacred Mountain.
