Ritual Items for Your Practice

Lama Zopa Rinpoche at Lawudo, Nepal, 2015. Photo by Roger Kunsang.

Right understanding is the only solution to both physical and mental problems. You should always check very carefully how you're expending your energy: will it make you happy or not? That's a big responsibility, don't you think? It's your choice: the path of wisdom or the path of ignorance.

–Lama Thubten Yeshe
