LYWA Online Recordings and Podcasts
The core of the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive is the collection of audio recordings of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, dating back to 1971. The recordings range in quality, but as we are able to prepare them for online publication we will make them available through our website.
Recordings are categorized by topic and can be accessed using the "Audio" menu item above. Where available, we have included the unedited transcript for ease of listening.
All audio recordings are available in MP3 format. You can either download the file, or listen via "streaming" (listening without having to download the file). The "Listen Online" link at the top of a page which includes audio launches an audio player that should work for you no matter what kind of computer you use.
Information about our monthly podcast
A podcast is another way of publishing audio online. Whereas the recordings found on our website pages are easy to download and listen to on your computer, podcasts enable you to do this and more.
Podcasts can communicate with software that makes it easy to download and listen to recordings on your portable Mp3 player (like an iPod) -- iTunes is one example of this. iTunes and other software packages like Juice can also be run on your computer and provide an easy way to search, organize and listen to podcasts.
The best part about podcasts is that you can "subscribe" to a podcaster (like Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive) which means that every time we publish a new audio teaching, it is downloaded automatically to your podcast software. How to do this depends upon the podcast software or service you have chosen, but in most cases it's a single click.
Subscribing, downloading or listening to a podcast requires an address to the location of our podcasts file that you enter into your podcast software:
If you are able to find Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive through your podcast search or directory, then you won't need this address. But if you can't find our listing, you should be able to plug this address in to your software.
If you have questions about any of the above, please email the webmaster. Enjoy!
