Living in the Path module 6

In this course, Lama Zopa Rinpoche inspires us to recognize the opportunity of our perfect human life and take full advantage. We are skillfully reminded that life is short; but we can still insure our success in obtaining all levels of happiness. A marked distinction is made between those who think of future lives and those who “have no idea.” Finally, Rinpoche shares some profound quotes from realized masters pointing out the difference between worldly desire and Dharma happiness. These teachings are extracted from the Light of the Path Retreat, September 2010 in North America taught by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

By enjoying the happiness of Dharma, it never finishes; it only increases more.
Enemies cannot destroy it.
You can carry it to your next lives.
You can complete the happiness of Dharma and achieve satisfaction.
Master Asanga

In these sessions, Venerable Drimay will take us through select videos (with transcripts) of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s teachings. As a facilitator, she will explain key vocabulary and ideas and will lead discussions and meditations. Each session includes:

  • mindfulness exercises
  • meditations
  • and activities that we can do between each class

There will be readings made available, consisting of further transcripts. These readings can be accessed here, on the FPMT online learning site, but you’ll have to register. After the first class, we will email the file to class participants who give us their email address.
