What is a Dharma Talk?

     It is a talk, usually including Q & A, given by a Buddhist teacher, who illuminates some immediate aspect of our lives through the application of Buddha's Teachings (The Dharma).
In the Soto Zen lineage, Dharma talks are only given by ordained priests and fully transmitted Roshis.
