"Nagarjuna Institute of Exact Methods is a center of Buddhist Learning, which serves the needs of the Buddhist community in the Kathmandu valley. It aims at enlightening Nepalese people about their own form of Buddhism, its philosophy and practice."

This is a pretty interesting site, but as this blog's focus is online Dharma resources, I'd like to specifically point readers to their collection of links for downloadable e-books, fairly small, but really interesting.

Kadampa Center Online Dharma Collection

If I haven't mentioned this, there's a collection of audio files at the Kadampa Center website, featuring companion audio for the FPMT's Discovering Buddhism series, amongst other titles. Check it, if you're so inclined.

Discovering Buddhism: Mind and its Potential (Kadampa Center) (November 13, 2006)

Via the Internet Archive (fantastic resource, by the way), here's a collection of audio files which are a part of the FPMT's Discovering Buddhism series. Here's the text from the Archive page:
Mind and its Potential is the first course in the Discovering Buddhism series presented by Kadampa Center. Discovering Buddhism is a 14-course series of introductory Buddhist theory and practice designed by the Foundation for the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).

Examine what is "mind," its nature and function, and how it affects our experience of happiness and suffering. Come explore the differentiation between mind and brain, mind as the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. In addition, learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and create a positive and joyous mind.

Kadampa Center, affiliated with the FPMT, is located in Raleigh, NC. For more information on the Center, see; for more information on FPMT, see
