The Enlightened Experience: Volume 3 eBook

Collected Teachings: Volume 3
Edited by Uldis Balodis and compiled by Sandra Smith

Volume 3 of The Enlightened Experience features three discourses given by Lama Yeshe at the Sixteenth Kopan Meditation Course in 1983. These were Lama’s last public teachings before he tragically passed away in March 1984, so they have a special significance.

The first discourse is a question-and-answer session, in which Lama offers essential advice to students on how to integrate Dharma when they return to the West. In the second discourse Lama discusses many aspects of the path to enlightenment including refuge, the five lay precepts and the bodhisattva vows. In Lama’s final discourse he describes bodhicitta as a universal meditation and urges students to change the attitude of self-cherishing into a determination to hold others dear.

The ebook series now consists of three volumes of collected teachings by Lama Yeshe. See also Volume 1 and Volume 2. These teachings have been published previously on the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive website and in other publications, including Mandala magazine. The purpose of the ebook series is to gather the teachings into a central resource.
