Lama Yeshe Gyamtso's teaching on overcoming obstacles is based on The Light of Wisdom, which is a commentary by Jamgon Kongtrul on The Wisdom Essence, a precious, concise and profound teaching by Guru Rinpoche that was recorded by Yeshe Tsogyal. Some portions of The Light of Wisdom are translated and published. The portion on which this teaching is based has not been translated into English. Lama Yeshe's teaching provides access to amazing material that is not otherwise available. Guru Rinpoche's advice on working with obstacles or hindrances addresses this issue from both an ultimate and a relative perspective. It ranges from obstacles on the path that are primarily experienced by long time practitioners to obstacles encountered by beginning meditators. Because the essence of the path is the process of working with obstacles, the material in this teaching is of fundamental importance.

With respect to accumulating merit, Lama Yeshe began by teaching the meaning of merit and the importance of motivation and dedication. After explaining the difference between the causal (sutra) and resultant (vajrayana) vehicles of practice, he provided an extensive, detailed teaching on the seven branches of accumulating merit in the causal vehicle. This teaching included some wonderful stories about the Buddha, the Bodhisattvas and the Arhats. He concluded by teaching the methods for accumulating merit in the resultant vehicle (vajrayana).
  • MP3CD Recordings
    MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have MP3 or MP3-WMA clearly marked on the front of it.
  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
