With Geshe Tenzin Zopa
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm PST
Friday – January 7th, 14th, 21st – 2022
“If we offer to the buddhas, the end result is full enlightenment. That is what we need to achieve, to do perfect service, perfect work for sentient beings, to free them from oceans of samsaric sufferings.”
–Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche
In this course, Geshe Zopa will use the Extensive Offering Practice to explain the essential points of how to integrate offerings into formal practice and daily life. Students will learn how to use this text in their own practice and will understand the spiritual benefits and profound meaning behind making various kinds of offerings.
This text was composed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to create the most extensive merit possible when making any kind of offering. It is one of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s heart practices for the accumulation of merit.
If you would like a copy of the root text, we have made it available for you here.
