Robert Thurman's Basic Buddhism is a collective series of 5 lectures he has given on Buddhism. In these lectures, Thurman patiently takes apart each jewel of Buddhism: the Buddha as the teacher of enlightenment, the Dharma as the teaching, or enlightenment itself, and the Sangha as the historical and current community of learners seeking to become Buddhas.

Robert A.F. Thurman is the Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies in the Department of Religion at Columbia University, President of the Tibet House U.S., a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Tibetan civilization, and President of the American Institute of Buddhist Studies. Thurman is known as a talented popularizer of the Buddha's teachings. He is a riveting speaker and an author of many books on Tibet, Buddhism, art, politics and culture

    it appears to lack some structure mainly; due to my ignorance and because it is not an actual audiobook. However, Robert Thurman's enthusiasm and expertise more than makes up for any confusion on my behalf. I was and continue to be fascinated by the breadth of knowledge and historical content that he presents.
