    The content of this book is based on Lama Yeshe teachings on 1975 at his visit Some recurring topics that Lama Yeshe mentioned several times are 1 the correct attitude of a religious person of ANY religion 2 explanation about different teachings based on level of understanding...

    The author emphasizes the following 1 to take the middle path take things in moderation don t be extreme 2 respect other religions 3 question and investigate what was taught by buddha 4 different people would have taken different paths, and may have therefore subscribed to different religions in order to find their path 5 charity, if given must be accompanied by morality, patience, effort, concentration, and wisdom and6 when meditating, do not reject the thoughts that come, but instead investigate them thoroughly and7 that change is the only thing certain as propounded by pre Socratic philosopher, Heraclitus.However, like many books on explaining religion, it would shy away from morally controversial subjects such as moral relativism and moral nihilism This can be seen when the author characterized stealing from the rich and giving to the poor as not charitable , which arguably in context may not be moral either The so called morality of rebellion and insistence on following the letter of the law is thus left unexplored He also stated, If you understand that different people s minds need different methods and solutions, you ll see why there s a need for many religions This is a problematic statement as he suggests religion or in this case mult...

    Lama Yeshe speaks with precision about our materialistic delusions He urges deep insight into our own personal minds that we may meditate to get to the truth of our behaviours and gain wisdom that will serve us on a day to day basis.

    Lama Yeshe was one of the first to teach Tibetan Buddhism to westerners His interest in explaining relationships between the supreme psychologist, Lord Buddha and limited knowledge of the workings of the mind in the pretty young western science of psychology makes intriguing reading The beautiful title of The Peaceful Stillness of the Silent Mind stood out to me when approaching the small books of the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive The book is the fourth in a series of lectures from the 1970s and 1980s given by Lama Yeshe and published to be given for free to people interested This collection contains the gem An Introduction to Meditation , explaining how the function of meditation is to reintegrate the split and fragmented mind so that you can transcend your impulses and sense perceptions of the agitated mind, the root of dissatisfaction You need to get to know your own mind deeply in order to overcome this dissatisfaction or agitation Watching your own mind is much interesting than watching TV, he says in this book Once you ve seen your mind, you ll find television boring Meditation is not a quick and easy fix You cannot stop problems simply because somebody says you have this problem because of this, that or the other Somebody interprets something for you, says a few words, and all of a sudden you see the light, oh yes, thank you my problem is solved That is impossible The root of problems is much too deep for something like tha...

    A brief and excellent book about Buddhism as taught and practiced by a Tibetan lama I am very unfamiliar with the tenets of Buddhism, nor do I really understand the religion of the Tibetans, but I am interested in learning , and mentioned this fact to one of my students who happens to be a Tibetan Buddhist He, very excitedly, brought me six or seven free books written by Lama Thubsten Yeshe This was the first Buddhism seems very inwardly directed It is about the mind than are religions like Christianity or Islam or Judaism which are all about an external God and his rules I found much of what the lama discussed to be quite insightful, albeit wildly different from the spiritual practices and...

    I would definitely recommend reading this book What I love about books by people like Lama Yeshe is the approachability with which they write about complicated Buddhist concepts and the way in which it is readily applicable to your life and mind despite your religious belief or place along the spiritual path It is even applicable to those who don t believe to be on a spiritual journey at all Mindfulnees is such an important life skill and everyone should consider practicing it if they find their mind and life in constant motion like many Americans A few lines in the book touched me deeply and I am trying to apply them to my perspective right away These books are free to get and it was interesting because the copy I have had already been read and had some underlines in it It ...
