“Without the self-cherishing thought, if we experience AIDS, cancer or any heavy disease, we can use this disease to become a great, quick, very powerful purification,” encourages Lama Zopa Rinpoche in Cutting the Root of Samsara, the third volume in a Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive series drawn from the 24th Kopan course in 1991. “We can experience this disease in order to benefit all sentient beings. It becomes a very powerful, very quick way to finish the work of purifying the obscurations and a quick way to finish the work of accumulating extensive merit. As we are experiencing the disease for the sake of all sentient beings, even in each second we are accumulating infinite merit. So experiencing these diseases without the self-cherishing thought becomes the quick path to enlightenment, like practicing tantra. It’s like doing many hundreds of thousands of Vajrasattva retreats, like doing many hundreds of thousands of prostrations with the Thrity-five Buddhas’ names, like doing many hundreds of thousands of preliminary practices.

“When we experience this disease on behalf of other sentient beings, without the self-cherishing thought, then there will be great compassion, bodhichitta, for other sentient beings. Therefore, it becomes incredibly meaningful, worthwhile, to experience. It’s the means of quickly purifying, very powerfully purifying, and a quick way to accumulate extensive merit in each second. Like this, it’s a quick way to achieve enlightenment and to liberate sentient beings.

“The whole experience becomes an incredible means. Even if we have to experience this disease for a hundred years, for a thousand years, even if we have to live our whole life with this heavy disease, it becomes a hundred-year retreat, a thousand-year retreat – however long we have the disease. It becomes a very meaningful retreat.”

“… [T]he obscurations are temporary. No matter how much heavy negative karma we have created, it’s temporary. No matter how much we have live an evil life, that is also temporary. No matter how much depression we are experiencing, how much very heavy disease we are going through – very terrifying sicknesses even for our whole life – no matter how many relationship problems we have, even if everybody – our family, the people inside our home and those outside, everybody – dislikes us, none of these things are permanent,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches in Cutting the Root of Samsara, the third volume in a Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive series drawn from the 24th Kopan course in 1991. “They are all temporary. Even if we are going through a lot of life difficulties, failure in business and so forth, going through much hardships in life, where nothing succeeds, also that is not permanent. It’s not something that happens all the time. It’s just for the time being. So all these are temporary.

“A white cloth that is dirty is not oneness with the dirt; it’s temporarily obscured by the dirt. Therefore, there’s a possibility to clean the cloth with water, soap and so forth, so that the white cloth can be separated from the dirt, so that it can become clean. Similarly, the mirror is not oneness with the dirt. The dirt that covers the mirror is temporary. Because the nature of the mirror is not oneness with dirt, therefore, as with the cloth, the dirt can be separated away from the mirror, leaving it clean, without having dirt on it.

“This is similar to the clear light nature of the mind, that which is buddha nature, buddha essence, buddha potential or the race of the buddha. The clear light nature of the mind is pure because it is not mixed with the stains of mind. It is not oneness with the obscurations. It is not oneness with ignorance; it is not oneness with anger; it is not oneness with attachment. The nature of the mind that is the clear light is pure, ‘pure’ in that sense.”

Several photo albums featuring Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s activities around the world have been posted to FPMT.org for students and supporters to look at and enjoy. 

Rinpoche toured Australia during May and June 2015, visiting several FPMT centers including De-Tong Ling Retreat Centre, Buddha House and Vajrayana Institute. Rinpoche also attended the teachings with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in June that were in the Blue Mountains near Sydney. 

Earlier in May, Rinpoche visited Mahamudra Centre, Chandrakirti Centre and Dorje Chang Institute in New Zealand. While there, Rinpoche also blessed the water and beings living in the ocean and performed a puja on Mt. Taranaki in Egmont National Park.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche was present to help Kopan Monastery through the immediate response to the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015. This album not only shows Rinpoche’s compassionate response to the disaster, but chronicles some of the hard work carried out by Kopan’s nuns and monks to provide emergency relief. Just prior to the earthquake, Rinpoche visited Lawudo in the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal, where his previous incarnation meditated.

“The I is one; others are numberless,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche reminds students in Cutting the Root of Samsara, Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive’s third volume in a series drawn from the 24th Kopan course in 1991. “There are numberless sentient beings and every one of them is so important and so precious, so kind. Our happiness comes from them, therefore every one of them is so precious. Every one of them is so precious. Just as we think of ourselves as so precious, everyone is so precious like this, more precious than even ourselves. The I is one. We ourselves are just one, so compared to the numberless, precious, kind sentient beings, this I itself, which is one, is completely lost. Even by number, without thinking of the kindness, this one I is completely lost. This I is completely lost. It’s nothing. It’s just like one atom, this one atom is completely lost. It’s nothing. When we compare the numberless sentient beings, this I is nothing. Compared to how important, how precious they are, it is nothing.

“Therefore, anything other than working for sentient beings is meaningless. It’s empty. Anything other than working for sentient beings is empty, meaningless. Therefore think, ‘In my life, there’s nothing to work for other than sentient beings. In my life, there’s nobody to work for other than sentient beings. There’s nobody to cherish in my life other than sentient beings. What sentient beings want is happiness and they don’t want suffering. The happiness they need is the highest happiness, enlightenment. Therefore, I must lead them to full enlightenment. For that I need to achieve full enlightenment myself first. That depends on actualizing the path and that depends on protecting my karma, on practicing morality, not creating obstacles to the path, generating the path.’ …”

“If the self-cherishing thought, the ego, is strong, then the attachment clinging to this life also becomes very strong. The stronger the attachment is, the easier anger arises,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches in Cutting the Root of Samsara, the third volume in the four-volume ebook series of Rinpoche’s teachings from the 1991 Kopan Course and featured in the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive’s June E-letter.

“The happiness of the I becomes so important. In the view of the self-cherishing thought, the I becomes so important, so precious, therefore, my happiness becomes very important. My happiness and this life’s happiness become very important.

“Anybody who does a small thing disturbs us so much. Even birds making a noise when we want to meditate or when we want quiet to have a sleep – even a dog or a bird making a noise outside, or somebody talking – even a small thing becomes a big disturbance. Even if the decoration of the house is slightly wrong in our view, how things are put on the table, how things are decorated – even just a little bit in the wrong way according to our point of view, it’s the wrong way – this becomes very important. There are things in the house put in a slightly different place than where we’d like them. The other person puts them in this place where we don’t want them to be, moving them from there, putting them here, here. It’s supposed to be there, but she moved it here. It’s supposed to be that way because we put it that way. Whatever it is.

“Even a tiny mouse just going on the roof, making a little noise, just some noise, something we’re just able to hear, even a rat just quickly passing through the room. While we’re not expecting rats to run, it comes through. If we expected it, there’d be no problem. If we expected it, if we opened our mind toward rats, there’d be no problem. But if our mind is closed toward the rat, when we’re not expecting it, when we’re not wishing it, then the rat just quickly runs through, close to us, it becomes incredibly terrifying. Terrifying. Incredibly shocking. A big shock. There’s a rat in the house! A big shock! Immediately we want to move into another room or into another hotel where there’s no rat.

“The stronger the self-cherishing thought is, the stronger the attachment to this life, so the worldly concern is there. In the view of that mind, the I becomes so important, my happiness becomes so important. This life’s happiness becomes so important, so when there’s a small disturbance, which is such nonsense to be worried about, it becomes a big upset. …”
