I love this man's presentation. Yes, the sound is a little off, but his message is spot on! Thanks

I find little value in this man's jibber jabber. Would hope to learn from a non Buddhist point of view.

I really am interested and tried to listen to this lecture style video, but the sound quality is buzzy and the words come out indistinct.

Hi MOODYSH,

I'm so sorry you are having trouble with the sound quality. I've sent you an email from info@gaia.com to try and get more information so you can stream the video better. :)

I hope we can resolve this soon!
