DharmaWorks Recordings

Lama Choedak Rinpoche

Dharma teachings and events held by Sakya Losal Choe Dzong have been recorded since about 1985. The recordings are made by students on a voluntary basis.

Prior to 2005 recordings were only available on audio cassette tape. However since the beginning of 2006 recordings are available on audio CD and as MP3 and some of them are available as DVDs. All audio cassette recordings will eventually be converted to MP3 format and some may be given priority if requested.

The wide range of teachings in the DharmaWorks catalogue displayed here is divided into two parts:

  • RONGTON SERIES - These recordings are in-depth teachings on a wide variety of Buddhist philosophy topics and include teachings given by Lama Choedak Rinpoche on Tuesday evenings for the Rongton Buddhist Training College, Canberra. The Training College has been running during the school term since 1997. In addition there are recordings of detailed teachings from residential retreats and workshops.
  • GENERAL INTEREST - public talks, Sunday dharma talks and other shorter teachings of more general interest 

Most of the recordings are from the teachings of Lama Choedak Rinpoche, and there are also recordings by other teachers including His Holiness the Sakya Trizin, His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, His Eminence Luding Khenchen Rinpoche, His Eminence Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, His Eminence Gyana Vajra Rinpoche, and the late Venerable Khenpo Appey.

Recordings of teachings from many deity yoga retreats are available to students who have received the appropriate empowerments. These include Chenrezig, Medicine Buddha, Vajrapani, Vajrayogini, Vajrasattva, White Tara, Hevajra and Ngondro.

The catalogue was updated on 12 March 2012 to include many teachings from 2009 to 2011.
