Talks by Phiroz Mehta

Explore what it means to be truly human

After hearing Phiroz Mehta speak at the Buddhist Society, the Venerable Paññāvaddho said to him, “You have an unusual gift for putting things across. You should form a group to help people understand the background to Buddhism.”

Always a man of humility, Phiroz was reluctant: “It is true that I can manage to present things, but this gives people a mistaken impression. They think I know a great deal, but in fact I do not.”

Eventually pursuaded, Phiroz began holding meetings at
his London home, Dilkusha, and had the foresight to
record his talks on tape.

In this section you can listen to them,
download them for offline listening,
and purchase them on CD.
