Lama Zopa Rinpoche advises FPMT centers and study groups to do the practice
of Sur regularly.
Rinpoche strongly emphasizes the importance of this practice in helping
centers clear obstacles and create merit by making charity to the sentient
beings of the 6 realms. Rinpoche said that this practice is very beneficial in
general for sentient beings and in particular for pretas.
Once the practice is started it is important to try to do it every day. The
best time to do it is in the evening. Rinpoche said centers could set up a roster
system, having individuals or small groups taking responsibility to do the
practice of Sur for a period of time.
