ONLY A FEW DOZEN COPIES LEFT OF THIS EDITION! MINOR REVISIONS UNDERWAY.
, Rituals and Realization: A User's Guide to Tibetan Buddhist Practices
was published by FPMT Education Services. It captures in-depth instructions on leading the practices Lama Zopa Rinpoche most often recommends for FPMT centers and students and in the style Lama Zopa Rinpoche preferred at the time.
This book begins with the inspiring and clear teachings given by the late Khenrinpoche Lama Lhundrup on why we need ritual in our lives. This is followed with an introduction by long-time student Ven. Sarah Thresher on the elements of ritual practice and Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s particular style of leading rituals.
This book contains the common rituals used in FPMT, beginning with a teaching from Lama Zopa Rinpoche on the benefits of the practice, followed by a “How to Lead …” teaching from Ven. Sarah, and finally the practice itself.
There are several appendices, including a teaching on the vajra and bell, visualizations and motivations given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, a list of helpful resources, and the contributors’ biographies.
Spiral binding, 512 pages, 2009 edition.
