Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive

Publisher info

The Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive (LYWA) was founded in 1996 by its spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and is the collected works of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Kyabje Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.

These ebooks are made possible by kind supporters of the Archive who, like you, appreciate how LYWA makes these teachings freely available in so many ways, such as here on Smashwords and also on our website for instant reading, listening, downloading or as printed titles.

Our website also offers immediate searchable access to thousands of pages of teachings and hundreds of audio recordings by some of the greatest lamas of our time. Our photo gallery of incredible images and our ever-popular print books are also freely accessible there.
