About The Book
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's first teaching tour of North America, giving the reader the feeling of an intimate audience with two highly respected teachers.

"This is a superb book....presents basic Buddhist teachings with great lucidity and clarity." --
"In this wonderful book, Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche--two highly accomplished Tibetan Buddhist teachers--bring alive the rich tradition of Buddhism in a way that is directly relevant to modern life. Filled with profound wisdom and useful advice, Wisdom Energy is a lucid introduction to the key principles and practices of the Buddhism. It demonstrates the authors' remarkable talent for illuminating sometimes complex ideas in a manner that is easily grasped by Westerners. I highly recommend this exceptional book."
