Lama Yeshe, the inspirational teacher who strongly influenced the development of Buddhism in the West, found that the practice of Vajrasattva brought dramatic results for his Western students.

Also included is an entire section of complete retreat instructions - indispensable reading material for anyone undertaking a retreat in the Tibetan tradition. In they founded the international Buddhist organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition FPMT , which now has more than centers, projects and services worldwide.
He lives in Aptos, California. He was an ordained monk from to He lives in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Review: "Lama Yeshe was capable of translating Tibetan Buddhist thought not only through language, but by his presence, gestures, and way of life. I was very impressed with his ability to communicate deep truths in very ordinary language, with a hilarious sense of humor that helped deliver such wisdom.
But he died, so my attention eventually went elsewhere. Recently, I discovered his books--some very technical Tantra; some down-to-earth wisdom. Although, my many years of Dharma training is in Theravadin Buddhism, especially the practice of vipassana meditation, I found his teaching once again to be of great value--so direct, so clear.
Granted, some of his technical Tantra seemed to me, at first, of limited relevance to my interests. But upon closer reading, and in his hands, these teachings proved equally valuable. Lama Yeshe has given us a body of teaching of immense signifciance for practitioners of all schools of Buddhadharma.
As the founder of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition FPMT , with over centers around the world, he has created a lasting legacy.
We are very generously given a close-up view of how the meditation is to be done, including its associated rituals, and also of the minutiae of an actual Vajrasattva retreat.
