In this series of talks on Buddha Nature given in May of 2010 at Hartford KTC in Hartford, Connecticut, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso clearly lays out both the process by which we develop obscurations and the path of practice that allows us to overcome them. He explains that while it is difficult to experience the emptiness of our relative experience, we can directly experience our own mind. This quest to search for minds nature is precisely the goal of our meditation. It is not enough, however, to simply find it and rest in it. We cant just limit our practice to glimpses of our minds nature. We still need other practices. We must examine our mind closely through observation and analysis to thoroughly experience the nature of mind. Lama Yeshe made it clear that we should not view Buddha Nature as something distant or unattainable. It is not a hidden treasure, and it is not concealed from us. Once we gain confidence in our Buddha Nature we must then be patient and diligent. Through our practice and the guidance of our teacher we will experience gradual intensification of our realization and gain confidence that abiding in that realization will lead to liberation. Included in these talks are several excellent group meditation practices led by Lama Yeshe which were designed to facilitate investigation of our Buddha Nature. Five talks on five DVDs.

Five talks on five DVDs, 7 hours.

Lama Yeshe Gyamtso offered the teaching on faith and insight at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra in August 2008. In showing how those two aspects of spiritual development not only do not contradict, but in fact complement each other, he used the traditional model of the four types of faith as his outline: awe, aspiration, belief, and certainty.

The content of this teaching is best described in Lama Yeshe's own words:
"Many people have experienced, as beginners, almost a dichotomy or split between two aspects of what we regard, rightly or wrongly, as spiritual development. One aspect is the cultivation of faith and devotion-we think of that as the more emotional aspect of spirituality. The other aspect is the development of wisdom. As beginners we tend to think of that as more cognitive aspect-we try to learn; we try to understand.
Overcoming Obstacles and Accumulating Merit, DVD
By: Lama Yeshe Gyamtso
Our Price: $48.00
Members Price: $43.20

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 bedn 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).
