French Dharma Resources

Post by 明安 Myoan » Tue Oct 21, 2014 5:52 am

Does anyone have favorite Dharma resources in French that they would like to share?
I'm especially hopeful for Zen and Pure Land readings and/or audio, but anything would be welcome.
Of course, Thich Nhat Hanh's monastery is based in France, so that's a good start: http://villagedespruniers.net/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Merci d'avance :twothumbsup:

You may also be interested by Dzogchen Teachings? ... why not to try Namkhai Norbu's books http://www.amazon.fr/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0 ... Caps%2C343

The Theravada sister-site has a page of non-English resources but, strangely, hardly any in French.* This page, http://dhamma.ru/sadhu/106-french, does get a mention there and may be useful.

*Yes, strangely. Lots in German, some in Finnish, Indonesian, Romanian, etc.

Thank you, all.

Here are some things I've found:
a website about Zen:http://www.zen-occidental.net/index.html
a French Sangha with lots of information: http://dogensangha.fr/index/
quite replete Pure Land site: http://www.amitabha-terre-pure.net/
various schools: http://www.bouddhisme-france.org/

I've also found quite a few Dharma talks on YouTube. I'll try to share some of my favorites after watching more.

One to get us started, at least
