Without the right karma, happiness, liberation, and enlightenment are simply not possible. In this two DVD set, Lama Zopa Rinpoche describes for us the karmic importance of making offerings. Rinpoche clearly presents the power and benefit of making offerings to holy beings and holy objects, the power of doing actions with a bodhichitta motivation, and the importance of developing a mind of compassion as a pre-requisite to actualizing bodhichitta. Rinpoche encourages us to make even the smallest and simplest offerings - outlining the unbelievable results we can expect to experience as illustrated by stories of the past. During this precious heart instruction, we are also trained with great precision in how to most skillfully make offerings for maximum benefit.These teachings were given during a retreat session at the Lama Tsongkhapa Retreat held in Italy in September 2004. Viewers should be prepared that also on this DVD are a variety of prayers and practices that were performed during the course of the session. This is a two-DVD set.Note: Most DVD players sold in the last year will play both NTSC and PAL standards.
