LYWA is pleased to bring you a growing collection of multimedia titles on a range of topics. We are now able to present the teachings in all their multimedia aspects: transcripts enhanced as much as possible by images, audio and video from that teaching plus informal video, advice on the same topic and other related material in the Archive.

By weaving Archive resources together in this way we hope to provide the means for you to deepen your experience of the teachings, almost as if you had attended the teachings in person.

Our multimedia collection includes two series, drawn from the LYWA books Bodhisattva Attitude and Freedom Through Understanding, as well as a selection of individual titles. Find links below to all these titles.

Bodhisattva AttitudeThis series presents chapters from Bodhisattva Attitude, a book which brings together several motivations taught by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to be used first thing each morning to generate a bodhicitta motivation and, on the basis of that, train the mind in the bodhisattva attitude. Each of these motivations is a guided lam-rim meditation aimed at directing our minds into at least an effortful thought of bodhicitta. 

Freedom Through UnderstandingThis series presents chapters from Freedom Through Understanding, a book based upon teachings given by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche at a weekend seminar in England in 1975. Preceded by Lama Yeshe’s lecture on meditation, these teachings encompass the entire Buddhist path to enlightenment.


Other titles now available in multimedia format are:

The Nature of the Mind:  NEW! In our latest multimedia title, Lama Yeshe explains how our mind is structured, reminds us that intellectualism can only go so far and encourages us to “let go, just be.” The Nature of the Mind is our first title in a new multimedia series based on the LYWA book, Life, Death and After Death.

Freedom - Courage - Realization: This title presents Lama Yeshe's teachings on the three principal aspects of the path: renunciation, bodhicitta and the right view of emptiness. These teachings were given during a tour of Europe in 1982 and are included in the book The Essence of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Merely Imputed I: This title presents Rinpoche's extensive teachings on emptiness, given at the 33rd Kopan Course, Nepal, 2000.
