A collection of talks given by Lama Yeshe at Kopan Monastery. Western students had gathered on Christmas Eve, feeling a little out of place and unsure of what to do with their feelings of "missing out on Christmas". Lama, sensing their confused feelings, had them gather in the meditation hall where he gave these talks about Christmas and Buddhist practice.

The Buddhist Path to Happiness and Liberation

Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche

A weekend seminar based on the famous month-long Kopan meditation courses. Preceded by Lama Yeshe’s lecture on meditation, these teachings encompass the entire Buddhist path to enlightenment. The teachings on this DVD set can be found in the book also titled Freedom Through Understanding.

Lama Thubten Yeshe

A weekend seminar on death, intermediate state and rebirth taught by Lama Yeshe in Geneva, Switzerland, in September 1983. The topic is particularly poignant as this was the last teaching Lama gave in the West; he passed away some five months later. Here he was his usual boisterous, punchy, direct, funny, loving and compassionate self, treating death in his incomparable light yet serious way.

Lama Thubten Yeshe

In October 1982, after the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa, Italy, Lama Yeshe was interviewed on behalf of the Meridian Trust, the Buddhist film and video archive. These interviews offer a fascinating insight into one of the greatest Tibetan masters to come out of Tibet and one of the most effective in bringing the teachings of the Buddha to the world at large. 

Lama Thubten Yeshe

In two public lectures in California in July 1983, Lama Yeshe addressed the perils of the First Nuclear Age, exacerbated at that time by the Cold War and Americans' worries over the Soviet nuclear threat. Although the nature of our current concerns is different, Lama's observations and insights are as relevant today as they were when he first made them and we are honored to bring them to you on this DVD.
