A series of videos has been produced from Tan Dhammavidu’s 2015 public talks in Hong Kong

It is the first time Tan Dhammavidu’s talks had been filmed, and the first time had given his talks, outside of a Thai Buddhist centre.

He gave instruction on Anāpānasati and Buddha Dhamma. There was also group Meditation practice, question & answer sessions, & even some Suka, helping offset all the talk about Duka.

The videos have been uploaded onto YouTube and are available to view for free.
