Managing and Increasing Your Energy

“Happy people, enlightened people, successful people, inspired people -- they all share something in common -- they've learned how to manage and increase their energy.

"There are two sides to increasing energy. One is learning how to gain energy; the other is avoiding its loss. My subject today is not so much how you increase it. I'm suggesting that's pretty easy. The problem is losing it.

"The primary place where most people lose energy is in their relationships with others. Wherever dependency is created, energy is lost. In self-discovery, in Zen, you need to become independent and strong. That's the key that unlocks the door ... of enlightenment.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

The Enlightenment Cycle

"As an enlightened teacher of Buddhism, I’d like to welcome you to the pathway to enlightenment. I’d like to encourage you, based upon my own personal experience and the personal experience of countless others, to meditate -- to be more positive, to engage in the practice of meditation, to learn how to do this wonderful thing, to make your mind still in a crazy world." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Career Success

"A Buddhist monastery has a certain chemistry. There’s a certain laughter, a certain excitement, a certain brightness and ebullience, and it’s hard to capture that here (in the West). I think that same brightness here is captured in another way, and that’s by living and working in the world." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Buddhism

"Buddhism is the enlightenment cycle -- and there are different types of it. Principally there is short path and long path Buddhism. The long path is more of the religious aspect, that is to say, the church aspect: the practice of reading sutras, healthy ways of living, a certain amount of prayer, a little meditation. The esoteric aspect of Buddhism, which is short path Buddhism, is meditation." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Tantric Buddhism

Zen Tapes

In 1986, as Rama - Dr. Frederick P. Lenz prepared for a major public lecture series, he sought to present a path to enlightenment that would be most understandable to the largest group of people. He selected Zen as most relevant to his current and future students and called his teachings "Tantric Zen." The book is paperback and available on Kindle. Of the 18 transcribed talks contained in this book, he says:
