These are valuable documents, giving a wilderness perspective on basic Dhamma topics. This is distributing the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, in line with how the Buddha himself taught that his teachings should be offered. After graduating from Oberlin College in with a degree in European Intellectual History, he traveled to Thailand, where he studied meditation under Ajaan Fuang Jotiko, himself a student of the late Ajaan Lee.
He was made abbot of the Monastery in Ordained as a Buddhist monk in , he spent the remainder of his life wandering through Thailand, Burma, and Laos, dwelling for the most part in the forest, engaged in the practice of meditation. He attracted an enormous following of students and, together with his teacher, Phra Ajaan Sao Kantasilo Mahathera , established the Kammatthana Tradition that subsequently spread throughout Thailand and to several countries abroad.
He passed away in at Wat Suddhavasa, Sakon Nakhorn province. Phra Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo Ajaan Lee was one of the foremost teachers in the Thai forest ascetic tradition of meditation founded at the turn of the century by his teacher, Phra Ajaan Mun Bhuridatto.
His life was short but eventful. Known for his skill as a teacher and his mastery of supranatural powers, he was the first to bring the ascetic tradition out of the forests of the Mekhong basin and into the mainstream of Thai society in central Thailand. A true forest monk at heart, Ajaan Fuang left Wat Asokaram in in search of greater solitude more conducive to meditation, and ultimately ended up at Wat Dhammasathit in Rayong province, where he lived as abbot until his death in He also studied briefly with Ajaan Mun.
He returned to Thailand in , and died in Buriram on April 5, after a long illness. Talks The Basics collection is a graduated series of minute Dhamma talks addressing many areas of the practice.

Internet connections are often interrupted, and the download managers in web browsers are bad at resuming downloads.
These do a much better job at resuming interrupted downloads and leaving you with uncorrupted files. Some of these download accelerators are available as extensions to your web browser. Others are stand alone applications. An excellent free one that works on Windows, Android, and Linux is Uget. What is an RSS feed? An RSS feed is a simple list of new content to this site that your browser or feed reader will automatically check for updates.
Then that list will be accessible from, ususally, your browser toolbar as a dropdown menu. How do I subscribe to the RSS feed? This feed is RSS 2. Books Are there any accessibility options for the vision impaired? Which ebook format do I need? The epub format works for most e-readers, such as Android, iPhone, iPad, Nook, Sony, Adobe Digital Editions, desktop and laptop computers, among others. But not Kindles! Kindles use either the azw3 or mobi format.
The azw3 is a big improvement over the mobi, and Kindles can finally benefit from the intended formatting and fonts.
Amazon, however, does not yet? The mobi format will continue to be made available until Amazon fully supports the azw3. What are the disadvantages of the pdf format? The pdf format is the old standard and should be supported by all devices. The primary disadvantage of pdfs relative to epub, azw3 and mobi, however, is you cannot enlarge the font size without the text overflowing off the edge of the screen.
That can make it quite challenging to read on small devices. Additionally, with the large ebooks, ones with 1, or 2, pages, your device might freeze or struggle to scroll through the pdf.
I want to read the ebooks on my desktop or laptop computer. Which format should I get? The epubs have the intended fonts and formatting because of the capabilities of the epub format itself and because the ebooks from this website were created originally as epubs. The mobis, on the other hand, are just push-button conversions from the epubs using the Calibre application.
While the mobis are fully functional, no additional effort is put into correcting their formatting for the Kindle. The original formatting and fonts are available on a Kindle by using the azw3 format, which is almost identical to the original epub version. Is there any free software so I can read ebooks on my computer?
There are a number free reader apps. Purely for reading epubs, Adobe Digital Editions has a slick interface. Calibre is a more comprehensive option which allows for converting to other formats.
These might be of interest if you also have one of those devices for purposes of syncing. Kindle-for-PC reads mobis but is not recommended. How can I get paperback versions of these books?

Audio How do I stream listen to the mp3 audio files?

Because hard drive space is expensive on a hosted web server, it was costly to store those large archives for the downloading convenience of a small number of users. In any case, there are advantages, since there is a much smaller chance of ending up with a corrupt file downloading ten MB archives than a single 1.
