Ask a Monk: Q&A Video Series on Buddhist Living

Postby Winston » September 29th, 2011, 6:47 am

Check out this YouTube channel by a Western monk in Sri Lanka. He answers a lot of difficult questions from the Buddhist perspective, and is very fair and balanced in his answers. You can also see a calm serenity on his face and even emotionless voice, which is typical of a devout Buddhist practitioner. For anyone interested in applying Buddhist concepts to life, this channel will be very helpful to you. There are videos covering all aspects of life.

Here are some sample videos on his channel.

Here is an interesting video the monk did where he compares the pros and cons of living in a modern technological society vs. a primitive tribal one, and how a Buddhist practitioner should approach both. His comparison is very interesting. He notes how tribal life has far less stress than city life, and concludes that the most important thing is to avoid unwholesomeness.
