I've lately been studying the Diamond Sutra and came across an excellent series of video lectures:

I'm sorry if this has been posted before. I searched the forums but found no reference to it. The lecture is by Hyon Gak Sunim, an American monk who lives and teaches at the Seoul International Zen Center in South Korea. He is one of my favorite teachers, not only for his ability to communicate Buddhist texts to Western audiences, but also because of his engaging voice and often humorous delivery style.
Any way, it's quite long, but very interesting and revealing. I think he does a better job of explaining the first chapter's deep significance than Thich Nhat Hahn, whose book "The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusion" I am currently reading.
