Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation
a lecture by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.
delivered at the University of Colorado, Boulder

This talk was originally written in response to an invitation from multiple sponsors at Yale University. Various versions of this talk were given at Northeastern University, New York University, The University of Washington, Seattle; The University of British Columbia, Vancouver; the University of Colorado, Boulder; Harvard University, and Brown University, as well as at Dhamma Patapa Vipassana Center, Georgia.

This particular version of the talk was recorded at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is meant as an introductory talk that uses no technical language, and that contains explanations that require no previous biological knowledge. (Please understand that due to recording problems, the question-and-answer session ends abruptly.)

Another recording of this talk from the University of Washington, Seattle is geared more towards a university audience. It is a little more technical, and may perhaps be appreciated more by someone familiar with biological understanding. It looks upon meditation from a biological standpoint.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions if you are not sure how to use this page.

What is Podcasting?

Think of a podcast as a radio show. Each show consists of a series of individual episodes that you can listen to how you want - on your PC, using your MP3 player, or with just a web browser - and whenever and wherever you want.

You can listen to these episodes one at a time (say using your web browser) or you can 'subscribe' to the entire podcast series using software on your PC. When you subscribe to a podcast, all new shows will be automatically downloaded to your computer as they are published. And if you have an MP3 player, the next time you sync your device, your podcasts will be downloaded for listening on the go.

Do I need an iPod or an MP3 player to listen to podcasts?

Not at all. You can listen to podcasts directly from your computer. If you want to take it with you, any MP3 player or iPod will work.
