The great Pabongkha Dechen Nyingpo said, "Knowing Dharma is not enough; you must practice.” This collection, Heart Advice for Retreat, is a must-have for all practitioners, especially those engaging in longer retreats.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche offers advice on the essential aspects of retreat and how to bring about the result of enlightenment. Additionally, Rinpoche provides compelling commentary to Pabongkha's text, Like a Female Cannibal Cheating, and on the rituals and necessary motivations required for entering into retreat.
Advice, commentary and resources include “The Importance of Retreat,” “The Meaning of Retreat,” “Special Instructions,” “The Happiness of Dharma,” “Break-time Meditations,” “Dedication Prayers,” “Helpful Resources,” and much more.
