Cherishing Others

Lam-rim Teachings from Kopan, 1991

Book 4
Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive
Free sample

This is the fourth volume in a new series presenting previously unpublished teachings from Lama Zopa Rinpoche's teachings given during the 24th Kopan lam-rim course in 1991.

In this ebook, Rinpoche emphasizes the benefits of renouncing the self-cherishing mind and cherishing other sentient beings. Rinpoche concludes the Kopan course with advice to students on how to practice Dharma in the West, and lastly, he offers refuge and a teaching on the benefits of taking vows.

This series consists of four volumes of lightly edited transcripts that we hope will convey the feeling of being in Nepal for the one-month Kopan course. The first volume is titled Practicing the Unmistaken Path, the second volume is Creating the Causes of Happiness and the third volume is Cutting the Root of Samsara.

About the author

Lama Zopa Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist scholar and meditator who for 30 years has overseen the spiritual activities of the worldwide network of 160-plus centers, projects and social services that form the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) which he founded with Lama Thubten Yeshe.

Born in the Mount Everest region of Thami in 1946, Rinpoche was recognized soon afterwards by His Holiness Tulshig Rinpoche and five other lamas as the reincarnation of the great yogi Kunsang Yeshe. Rinpoche was taken under the care of FPMT’s founder Lama Thubten Yeshe, soon after leaving Tibet, in Buxa Duar, India, in the early 1960′s. Rinpoche was with Lama Yeshe until 1984 when Lama Yeshe passed away and Lama Zopa Rinpoche took over as spiritual guide of FPMT.
