Abstract: '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 adn 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. 'Wisdom Energy' preserves the power, humor, and directness of the lamas' first teaching tour of North America in the 1970s, giving the reader the feeling of an intimate audience with two of Buddhism's greatest teachers.
