In this explanation, filled with stories and anecdotal illustrations, Lama Zopa Rinpoche describes to us unmistakably what is true Dharma and what is not. With a number of actual life incidents, Rinpoche brings us to the heart of the teachings – cherishing others and renouncing ourselves. This teaching is incredibly personal and leaves us with a deep sense of how to practice in the most skillful way to bring about the realizations of the path quickly in our mind. The benefits of a variety of practices are explained and, in particular, the power of the practice of guru devotion.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 2-DVD set.Note: Most DVD players sold in the last year will play both NTSC and PAL standards.
