Have you wondered where the LMB Media Lab went? Starting in January of 2014, the videos that used to be distributed on hard-copy DVDs have been migrating over to the online video streaming service called Vimeo.
For over a decade, Dorje (Jason Greenberg) and others worked in a department here called the Media Lab, carefully recording, editing, and distributing Dharma teachings on DVD and CD. Venerable George Churinoff, who lived and taught at LMB for some time, was instrumental in figuring out the technicalities of what software to use and what kind of DVD printing machine to get. Dorje was assisted by Nicholas Eyes behind the computer up in the Media Lab trailer.
But times have changed and people are now getting their media through online streaming. Alas, many computers sold nowadays do not even have a DVD/CD drive! Also, the shipping costs were prohibitive for people living outside of the United States. And for other reasons, we could no longer afford to run the Media Lab.
So, we decided to start uploading the general, unrestricted videos to Vimeo, where you can watch and/or download them for free. We haven’t done anything yet about the audio recordings from year’s past. As for the restricted videos, such as those requiring an empowerment, we will hold onto the master recordings and perhaps make those available upon special occasions in the future.
For now, please enjoy the unrestricted videos on Vimeo. If you find the service useful, you are invited to make a donation on the Vimeo website by clicking on the button there that says Tip this video.
