Lama Chopa Puja

With Geshe Tenzin Legtsok

November 22, 2023

Lama Chopa Puja

Lama Chopa, also called Guru Puja, is a beautiful, profound practice where we make offerings to and request blessings and inspiration from the Three Jewels and the Spiritual Teacher (whether or not the teacher is physically present).

Lama Chopa with Tsog Offering is an excellent practice for accumulating merit and pacifying obstacles on the path to enlightenment.

The Tsog Offering portion of the puja fulfills a commitment* for those Highest Yoga Tantra practitioners practicing Mother Tantra and restores vows and pledges that have degenerated.

*Highest Yoga Tantra Practitioners who would like to participate in offering Tsog at home may set out offerings of fruit, food, and flowers on their home altars and have on hand a small amount of meat and alcohol.

Phabongkha Dechen Nyingpo usually emphasizes that even if one can’t do much else in daily life, Guru Puja is the essential practice. … This practice of Guru Puja is very profound, with many extra benefits, and is very quick to bring enlightenment. ~ Lama Zopa Rinpoche
