The Dalai Lama Explains Tibetan Buddhism

This may have limited appeal to most readers, but if you teach a comparative religion course or something similar, you may find this video useful. In this video the Dalai Lama gives an introduction to Tibetan Buddhism. It is definitely not a fast-paced lecture and takes a while to get into (I'm only at the 35 minute mark as I write this, but I do find it interesting so far), but it could be useful in the right setting.
I learned about this video on the awesome Open Culture blog.
