Wisdom energy : basic Buddhist teachings by Thubten Yeshe( )

3 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Wisdom Energy' is a simple and compelling introduction to Buddhism by two Tibetan lamas renowned for their insight and skill in teaching Westerners. Containing an entire meditation course, it goes to the heart of basic Buddhist practice and discusses the meaning and purpose of meditation, the causes of dissatisfaction and unhappiness, and the methods for subduing them and gaining control over our minds and lives. Originally published in 1976, 'Wisdom Energy' still preserves the power, humor, and directness of the lamas' first teaching tour of North America, giving the reader the feeling of an intimate audience with two highly respected teachers."--Publisher description
