Collected Teachings: Volume 1
Lama Thubten Yeshe
Edited by Nicholas Ribush and compiled by Sandra Smith
In the first volume of our new ebook series, Lama Thubten Yeshe provides inspiration and guidance for new and experienced students alike, encouraging us to recognize our limitless potential and develop “knowledge-wisdom.” Lama discusses the principal aspects of the path to enlightenment and offers general advice on relationships, educating children and a range of other issues. The collection includes Integrating What You’ve Heard, an edited transcript of the earliest recorded teaching given by Lama Yeshe at Kopan Monastery, Nepal, in 1972.
This collection is drawn from teachings given by Lama Yeshe in the 1970s and 1980s, when he traveled the world and taught extensively along with Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Lama Yeshe was a pioneer in bringing the Dharma to Westerners and the teachings in this book demonstrate his understanding of the Western psyche and his ability to express profound truths in simple terms.
These teachings have been published previously on the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive website and in other publications, including Mandala magazine. The purpose of this book is to gather the teachings into one central resource.
