2014-06-04 Paradox of Dharma 61:32
  Eugene Cash
Things are not what they seem Nor are they otherwise - Buddha This talk explored the role and dynamic of paradox in Buddhist teaching and practice. We looked at the paradox inherent in the experience of the three characteristics -- anicca (impermanence), dukkha (suffering) and anatta (self and not self). As we relax with the paradoxical experience the three characteristics become portals to awakening.

2014-03-06 Sutta Series: Capala Sutta: The Buddha's Advice for Overcoming Sloth and Torpor (AN 7.58) 51:19
  James Baraz
Do you ever get sleepy while meditating? In this discourse, the Capala Sutta from the Angutarra Nikaya, the Buddha catches one of his main disciples, Ven. Maha Moggallana nodding off. He then offers him seven strategies for overcoming "sloth and torpor". Identifying with the drowsiness can actually be a doorway to the wisdom of anatta or the selfless nature of reality.
