This site contains downloadable audio files (MP3) format of H.H. the Dalai Lama's teachings on Padmasambhava's Garland of Views: Esoteric Instructions (Man ngag lta ba'i 'phreng ba). This text, the only one actually attributed to Padmasambhava's authorship, is a commentary on the thirteenth chapter of the Secret Essence Tantra (Tib. gsang ba'i snying po'i rgyud; San. Guhyagarbha Tantra), the central Mahāyoga tantra for the Nyingma (rnying ma) School of Tibetan Buddhism.These teachings were given at the University of Miami September 20-21, 2004. There are audio files of the Tibetan with English translation by Geshe Thubten Jinpa as well as audio files of Mandarin Chinese translation. There is also a file of the Dalai Lama's public talk on September 22: "World Peace through Inner Peace." (Steven Weinberger 2004-10-01)
