Collected Teachings: Volume 2
Lama Thubten Yeshe
Edited by Nicholas Ribush and compiled by Sandra Smith
In the second volume of this ebook series, Lama Yeshe discusses a range of topics including refuge, impermanence, the death process, karma and delusion. Lama teaches on emptiness in a practical and experiential way and advises how to develop the profound wisdom and method of the Buddha. Volume 2 includes several excerpts from a commentary on the tantric deity yoga practice of Manjushri and a poignant last letter to his close friend Geshe Jampa Wangdu, written when Lama was seriously ill.
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.
