We have put up in the FPMT Members Area a brief 2 minute film of Rinpoche teaching, created by Christina Lundberg, which can be used by centers to introduce and promote Rinpoche. It is an ideal length to be used as promotional material to send to local TV stations to publicize a visit by Rinpoche. /members/resources/streaming.php
A collection of touching, humorous and illuminating stories about the endless activities and efforts of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, including the koala and millipede sadhanas and extensive offerings of one’s French fries.

Kyabje Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche, a great yogi with skies of qualities, who unfortunately recently passed away. Rinpoche was not only a great scholar of the words of the sutras and tantras, the extensive Buddhadharma, but a great yogi who had attainment of the whole path to enlightenment.
The Real Chöd Practice – When somebody tells you something that really hurts your mind then that is the most beneficial thing for your mind, because it goes straight to your ego – it goes straight to your heart and touches your ego.
The Need for Organization - There is a need for organization in order to be able to help others, to be able to help more sentient beings. As an individual we can’t do much. We need to be organized.
Rinpoche recently said that an absolutely essential part of a Long Life Puja is the 16 Arhant prayer. Rinpoche said it is not an optional prayer and it is vital to do during a long life puja because we are relying on the 16 Arhants for the Guru’s long life. Also the lama’s long life prayer is not optional during a Long Life Puja to that lama, it is essential. Rinpoche advised that we must recite the 16 Arhant prayer and then the lama’s long life prayer. Then while people are going up for blessings, the lama’s long life prayer or the optional prayers people can be continually recited.
NB: The FPMT Education Dept will be putting out a new version of the Long Life Puja with this incorporated later this year.With love,
FPMT International Office
Statements of Appreciation
I’m really glad that I decided to do the (Basic Program) exam and retreat, as it has given me renewed enthusiasm towards more study and meditation, and humility realizing that whatever I think I know is only like a drop in the the ocean of Dharma. …Thank you, and the FPMT office, for all you have done in putting this program together and administering it.
