Buddhism Books: Lama Thubten Yeshe

Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-1984) was born in Tibet and educated at the great Sera Monastic University. He fled the Chinese oppression in 1959 and in the late 1960s, with his chief disciples, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, began teaching Buddhism to Westerners at their Kopan Monastery, Kathmandu, Nepal. In 1975 they founded the international Buddhist organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), which now has about 80 branches worldwide.

The Bliss of Inner Fire: Heart Practice of the Six Yogas of Naropa
by Lama Thubten Yeshe

Editor's Comments: Based on HAVING THE THREE CONVICTIONS by Lama Je Tsong Khapa (1357-1419 AD), this book examines the renowned Six Yogas of Naropa, a stage in the practice of Yoga Tantra. Through experiential commentary, guided meditation, and practical advice, Lama Yeshe brings the reader a tantalizing taste of the blissful technology of tantra as well as its direct application to everyday living.

Reincarnation: The Boy Lama
by Vicki MacKenzie

Editorial: A chronicle of life, death, and rebirth chronicles the remarkable story of Lama Yeshe, a Tibetan monk and teacher who passed away in 1984 and was reborn in Spain in 1985 as Lama Tenzin Osel Rinpoche.

Reader Review: I've been a member of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition for ten years. Unfortunately, I never got to meet Lama Yeshe, though I have benefited much from the organization he founded. Through reading Lama's teachings, I've gotten to know this great man after his death. With Vicki's book, I've gotten to know Lama even better and in a much different way than through his teachings; Vicki was close to Lama and her thorough style of writing helps my feelings of closeness even after his death.

Introduction to Tantra : A Vision of Totality
by Lama Thubten Yeshe

No one has summarized the essence of tantra as well as Thubten Yeshe does here. What is tantra? Who is qualified to practice it? How should it be practiced? What are the results? According to Buddhism, every human being has the potential to achieve profound and lasting happiness. And according to the tantric teachings of Buddhism, this remarkable transformation can be realized very quickly if we utilize all aspects of our human energy - especially the energy of our desires.

The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs
by Robert Beer

From the outstanding artist who provided the illustrations for the book Buddhist Masters of Enchantment, this book is not only an incredible collection of art, it is also wonderfully explanatory. R. Beer tells the mythos and history behind each set of images in a logical and easy to read format. Exquisitely detailed line drawings (using fine-pointed traditional brushes) with descriptions of the religious significance of the symbols as well as their sources and development in Tibetan art.

Reader review: Indispensable resource for all people interested in Tibetan culture. Hats off to Robert Beer for presenting this detailed excursion into the symbols and motifs of Tibet. Everything in this book is priceless from an information point of view.There is not another book in this area that is as detailed as this one is. I cannot thank Robert Beer enough, this is truly a modern 'terma' (hidden treasure).
