Wisdom Dharma Chats

With Host Daniel Aitken

Wisdom CEO and Publisher


Have you ever wished there was a talk show that featured all Buddhist guests?

Would you like to take part in intimate conversations with some of the most interesting minds in the Buddhist world? Would you like to be the first to hear what they’re currently working on, what their practice looks like, what they’re thinking about these days? Would you like the opportunity to ask them questions and receive their guidance on how to live a more inspired life?

If so, we’d like you to join us for Wisdom Dharma Chats. Taking place on Wednesdays over Zoom, the Dharma Chats are a special live video version of the popular Wisdom Podcast (which has 1 million downloads and counting). We think you’ll leave the Dharma Chats feeling energized and newly inspired to practice and follow your own spiritual path.

Each Wisdom Dharma Chat takes you on a fascinating exploration of Buddhism and meditation as our guests share stories and discuss life-changing practices, timeless philosophies, and new ways to think and live. These chats are followed by a Q&A session in which you can ask your own question to our guests. Episodes have featured guests like Robert Thurman, Ven. Robina Courtin, and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. See below for this week’s special guest and to watch previous episodes! 

"Join us for our next Wisdom Dharma Chat with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche!"


A Wisdom Dharma Chat with

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche


Join us and our special guest, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, on Wednesday, October 27 at 8 p.m. EDT (note: not our usual time) for a special app launch episode of Wisdom Dharma Chats, a live video version of the Wisdom Podcast with a Q&A session.

We’ll be celebrating the launch of the new 84000 app (learn more here), which provides a dynamic collection of Buddhist sūtras encompassing teachings on everything from meditation techniques to epic and inspirational journeys and narratives; from profound presentations of philosophical logic to short stories illustrating the workings of karma.

Rinpoche and host Daniel Aitken will discuss the app along with broader themes of technology and Dharma, including

  • why technology and Dharma are not as incompatible as some believe;

  • why the transmission of Dharma is in itself a form of technology;

  • Rinpoche’s thoughts on the future of Dharma;

  • and much more.

By signing up for this event, you agree to receive emails from Wisdom Publications. We look forward to having you with us!
