Retreat Dharma Talks at Dharmagiri

Being Dharma Month Long at Dharmagiri, South Africa

Being Dharma, taught by Kittisaro & Thanissara, draws from Theravada, Pure Land and Chan practice to explore the journey - as taught by Ajahn Chah - from "hearing the Dharma, learning, understanding, practicing and seeing the truth of the Dharma, to Being Dharma."
