Join Ven. Robina to participate in a meaningful and important Long Life Puja for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, offered by FPMT. Lama Zopa Rinpoche was very keen to have this puja occur.
Venerable Chodron will share reflections about processing the loss of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and answer puzzling questions about his passing from the perspective of guru devotion.
To create the causes for Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s swift return and continued guidance, Shantideva Center hosted online practices for 49 days, April 13- May 31, 2023.
Join us during these merit-multiplying days to do recommended practices for the long lives of H.H. Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and for helping to stop the violence and suffering in Ukraine.
The official annual long life puja offered on behalf of all in the FPMT organization to our most kind and immeasurably precious spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, will be offered at Kopan Monastery, Nepal, on March 11, 2022. This White Tara long life puja is being organized in accordance with the advice of Khadro-la, Rangjung Neljorma Khadro Namsel Drönme.
July 25, 2015 was a very auspicious day. That day, I arrived at Garrison Institute for a lamrim retreat with a group I had never met: Shantideva Meditation Center. I knew nothing about them. I had previously gone to teachings on A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, so the name of its author, Shantideva, was already awe-inspiring. Also awe-inspiring was meeting Venerable Amy Miller, the retreat leader. Her gentleness, openness, endearing presence, and practical approach to sharing the Dharma won my heart.
