The most recent English Q&A’s from Sayadaw’s retreat in the Czech Republic are available on the Bhavana.cz website. The audio titles are in Czech but the interviews are all in English.

Recordings of Sayadaw’s retreat at SBS Malaysia June 2013 can be downloaded here.

We are also working on dicing up longer Q&A’s into 2-6 minute, single question segments with tags and blurbs for accessibility and ease of use. For example, a two-minute clip “Quality Mind, Quality Decision” deals with the background behind indecision and on seeing many different angles and its relation to the quality of mind. You can find these on ashintejaniya.tumblr.com.
