About the Author

Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-1984) was born in Tibet and educated at the great Sera Monastic University. He fled the Chinese oppression in 1959 and in the late 1960s, with his chief disciple, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, began teaching Buddhism to Westerners at their Kopan Monastery, Kathmandu, Nepal. In 1975 they founded the international Buddhist organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), which now has more than 160 centers, projects and services worldwide.

Nicholas Ribush is the founding director since 1996 of the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive, dedicated to preserving the teachings of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. He graduated from Melbourne University Medical School in 1964 and first encountered Buddhism at Kopan Monastery in 1972. He was an ordained monk from 1974 to 1986. He helped establish Wisdom Publications with Lama Yeshe in 1976, established Tushita Mahayana Meditation Centre in New Delhi in 1977, and Kurukulla Center in Boston in 1989. Ribush was a member of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) board of directors from 1983 until 2002. He lives in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche is the Spiritual Director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), a worldwide network of Buddhist centers, monasteries, and affiliated projects, including Wisdom Publications. Rinpoche was born in 1946 in the village of Thami in the Solo Khumbu region of Nepal near Mount Everest. His books include Transforming Problems into Happiness, How to Be Happy, and Ultimate Healing. He lives in Aptos, California.

Reviews

"[FOUR STARS] Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-84), one of the best loved and most highly accomplished lamas teaching Westerners, has gifted us with a number of very important books based on his talks to students. Among his superb publications, all released by Wisdom Publications, are Introduction to Tantra, The Bliss of Inner Fire, and Becoming Compassion Buddha: Tantric Mahamudra for Everyday Life. Becoming Vajrasattva has the same direct quality as Lama Yeshe's other works, allowing the reader to sense and enjoy some of the immediacy of receiving oral instructions from a highly realized teacher. As the founder of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), with over 100 centers around the world, he has created a lasting legacy. This book is the first full-length treatment of the Vajrasattva meditation/visualization practice, which is considered very important by all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. 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. Lama Yeshe's accompanying instructional talks are, as always, precious and enormously clarifying and encouraging."--Georg Feuerstein, Traditional Yoga Studies Interactive
