The Tree of Wisdom

Nagarjuna was an Indian philosopher and he is often referred to as “the second Buddha” by Tibetan Mahayana traditions of Buddhism. The She-rab Dong-bu (Tree of Wisdom) is a metrical translation in Tibetan of the Sanscrit ethical work entitled Prajnya Danda, written by Nagarjuna who lived in the fourth century of the Buddhist era (about 100 B.C.). It is a commentary of manners or moral maxims having 260 verses composed by Nagarjuna. This brief audio book lasts 1 Hr. 30 Min. and is narrated by Chris Masterson over at LibriVox. We can't promise you all of the pronunciations are correct, but hey, it's free! Learn some Eastern philosophy with the teachings of this great Indian philosopher.

Perfect Just As You Are

Spiritual practice, Pema Chödrön teaches, has nothing to do with self-improvement, since, as the course’s title claims, you’re already perfect right now. The limitless qualities of loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity are your deep-down, ultimate reality, and those are qualities that can’t be improved upon. If you’re not feeling particularly kind, compassionate, joyful, or equanimous at the moment, take heart: the Four Limitless Ones are there like seeds, waiting to be cultivated through practice - and, being limitless, they’re rich enough to be worked with for a lifetime. This intensive program of study and practice provides the tools you need to access these radiant states and to nurture their growth for sake of all beings, including yourself.

Shambhala Publications on Audio Download

For more than a third of a century, Shambhala Publications has been devoted to the magic, craft, and business of books. Shambhala has specialized in books that present creative and conscious ways of transforming the individual, the society, and the planet.

The notion of translating spiritual insight into action in the world is embodied in the company's name: "Shambhala" is a legendary Central Asian kingdom that symbolizes an enlightened way of life harmonizing the inner and outer worlds. Thus, the Shambhala worldview enables them to publish in a wide variety of subject areas, including psychology and the sciences, the arts and creativity, business and economics, and health and healing. But it is religion and philosophy that remain the heart of their publishing program.

Here you'll find audio programs from teachers like Pema Chodron, Ken Wilber, Sakyong Mipham, the Dalai Lama, and Thich Nhat Hanh along with superb translations of classic spiritual works such as The Art of War, Siddhartha, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, and The Way of the Bodhisattva.

Audio Books by the Dalai Lama

Audio Books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama

LearnOutLoud.com is honored to be able to present everything available on audio from His Holiness the Dalai Lama. You may wish to start with "The Art Of Happiness", which mixes Buddhist tradition with common sense to illustrate how one can defeat feelings such as anger, anxiety, depression, and other destructive emotions. We also suggest "How To Practice: The Way To A Meaningful Life ", an accessible reference guide for life's hard decisions. It will teach ways of opening your heart, how to refrain from hurting others, how to retain mental wellness, and more. These teachings are divided into distinct steps and are designed for people of all faiths to learn from.

Finally there's "Advice On Dying", in which the stages of death are described so beautifully that we come to see death as the ultimate journey into transformation rather than an end. In this way the Dalai Lama shows us how to prepare for that time and, in doing so, how to enrich our time on earth, die without fear, and influence the stage between this life and the next so that we may gain the best possible incarnation. All of the books listed below share the common thread of His Holiness' excited spirit and sense of playful calm. LearnOutLoud.com's list of audio books by the Dalai Lama offer a new world of spiritual and mental awareness that will center your heart and prepare you not only for the day to day grind of the world, but also help you live a fuller, happier life.
