Starting in 2011, the Oslo Buddhist Studies Forum will have podcasts of speeches and discussions placed online. In January  Stuart Lachs spoke on “When the Saints Come Marching In: Modern Day Zen Hagiography,” which can be found here. On Tuesday FEBRUARY 15th 2011, 16:15-18:00, Dr. Ulrich Pagel (SOAS, London) will speak on “Commercial Pressure in Collision with Buddhist Morals: Monastic Attitudes towards Tax Evasion in Ancient India” and it looks like there will be more to come throughout the year. A similar kind of interesting podcast and blog can be found at the Columbia University Center for Buddhist Studies Weblog and the Buddhist Studies Seminar page, which has an amazing archive of interesting talks given over the past few years.
