Amazing catalog of Buddhist teachings, talks & meditations

Thank you to Dharma Seed for compiling such an incredible catalog of talks & meditations.

Some functions that would be helpful would be a “favorites” section so one can easily star talks they’ve listened too. Additionally a “wishlist or listen later” section w would be great as I often am browsing through talks and see a number of them that I would like to listen to at a later point.

Amazing resource

So many amazing teachers and talks at our fingertips with this app.

If I could request additional features I would suggest “Playlist” tab that we could easily add talks to by clicking a “+” symbol on individual talks as we are searching and browsing.

And the ability to reorder this Playlist because not all talks show up in the app in the order they were delivered. Such as when one teacher delivered five talks about the 5 Aggregates but it was over the course of several weeks and the talks aren’t labeled the same but can still be found with persistent searching.

It would also be great to be able to click on the retreat itself and see all of the talks for that retreat even by different teachers.

A default set of talks for the complete beginner would be great too. Also the app could include direct ways to contribute dana.

Thanks for considering and for making these available.

Love this app

I’ve come to use it regularly when I want to listen to talks about meditation practice and other life wisdom. The selection is amazing and continually growing.

I’d love it if this app provided a 15-sec rewind or fast forward function, like on Apple’s podcast app, that way I can relisten to parts I didn’t fully hear or want to think deeply on. The current time selector is too coarse; I end up rewinding by two or three minutes.
