A Brief History

Geshe La

There are many books that offer techniques to help manage the mental game of golf or sports in general, but this book is extraordinary, because all 21 chapters focus on mental and spiritual benefit. As Geshe La says, “May the pleasure of golf help people overcome the struggle of daily life. You must discover the master within yourself. We don’t see the master within because we don’t have the mirror of wisdom. We can develop this wisdom on the course. Golf can be a method of reflecting your life’s journey.”

This book is a very special collaboration between Geshe and Jesse Moussa. Geshe La, a man who spent his whole life from the age of 13 in spiritual practice; and Jesse a professional golfer who dedicated his life to mastering golf. They both love the game and writing this book together has clarified their purpose on the course.

“May this book bring great benefit to the reader.”
