gift of the teachings
About Us

Dharma Seed is dedicated to preserving and sharing the spoken teachings of Theravada Buddhism in modern languages. We serve our teachers, their community and retreat centers, and the students and practitioners who are interested. We invite you to explore and take nourishment from these heartfelt teachings.

Since the early 1980's, Dharma Seed has collected and distributed dharma talks by teachers transmitting the Vipassana or Insight practices of Theravada Buddhism, the oldest Buddhist tradition still actively pursued in the 21st century. We began copying cassette tapes in the 1980s, added CDs in the 1990s, and in 2006 we moved to make all our recordings freely offered and available for download or streaming as digital audio files (MP3s). New recordings are being added continuously from contemporary dharma teachers from around the world and in several languages.

We are a small non-profit organization supported through your donations. We deeply appreciate your help in making these priceless teachings available to all who need them. You will find opportunities on this site to also support the teachers through dana, the practice of generosity that has supported the teachings for over 2,500 years.

May all beings find true liberation from suffering.
