Great listening

I recently began meditating and attending service at International Buddhist Meditation Center where Kusala is the head monk. I always enjoy his Sunday Dharma Talks as well as our conversations before or after group meditation. I just found out he has this podcast as well and I have enjoyed learning more about Buddhism from him! I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in Buddhism. He knows a lot about Buddhism, and his delivery is great.

Dharma talks

I am so grateful to have found these talks. I have been studying and practicing for many years but the plain spoken, intelligent, insightful and humorous approach in these talks have helped me to find my path and to understand the teachings in new and deeper ways. Thanks so much! Be blessed with peace love and joy🙏🏻

This podcast is my reset button

Rev. Kusala’s understanding of Buddhism is profound yet approachable to lay persons and diligent Buddhist alike.

His dharma talks share the basics of Buddhist principles; every day life situations and examples of how to apply these principles; his own insights and pearls of wisdom (after 40 years of practicing meditation) of what it means to have a human life form in this world of existence; and most importantly they remind the listener to maintain a sense of humor throughout their spiritual journey.

I have had the privilege of learning from Rev. Kusala’s dharma talks for over a decade and continue to find them useful.

As a mother of two small children, my meditation practice is currently non-existent. However, this podcast helps me to hit the reset button. It allows me to feel more heart centered in my spiritual journey.
