LAMA ZOPA RINPOCHE’S ADVICE FOR LAM-RIM MEDITATIONS:
“The most important and best way to benefit others is to develop your heart and mind on the path to enlightenment. When you complete the path to enlightenment you will be fully qualified to liberate numberless sentient beings from oceans of samsaric suffering and bring them to full enlightenment. This is what sentient beings need and this is what is most beneficial for them. There is no greater success than this. This depends upon your actualizing the path to enlightenment by meditating on the lam-rim.”

LamaTsonghkhapaThe celebrated system of teachings known as the Stages of the Path (lamrim), written by the great medieval Tibetan Buddhist Saint, Lama Tsongkhapa, represents a synthesis of the entire path to enlightenment. Presented in a clear and concise form, these teachings are easy to understand and apply in meditation. Instruction begins with the preliminary practices, and then progresses through the essential practices of the ‘beings of the three scopes’, including correct guru devotion, renunciation, the altruistic wish for enlightenment and the view of the middle way.
