It’s so cool. The widget is PRESET to my specifications! Every time I shop there (and I do a lot; I love books), FPMT will receive funds. I’m so happy I could dance!

In case you missed the live webcast, you can watch the recorded video from Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s preliminary teachings while he was at Maitripa College in Portland, Oregon, April 19-22. While at Maitripa, Rinpoche gave a Vajrasattva initiation, an oral transmission of Dorje Khadro and a White Tara long life empowerment.

During Rinpoche’s visit to Portland, he also met with the board and staff of FPMT International Office, which shares a building with Maitripa College. Rinpoche gave advice on current and future projects and activities for the worldwide organization.

The Four Harmonious Friends

In the Vinayavastu (Foundation of Discipline), the Buddha tells the story of the Four Harmonious Friends – a pheasant, a rabbit, a monkey, and an elephant – who lived together in harmony. Each of the younger animals showed respect for the older animals’ life-experience and knowledge by carrying the older on his back.

Later, the eldest (the pheasant) taught the practice of ethical conduct to the others, who then taught the same practice to the rest of the forest creatures. Because of this, happiness and comfort increased greatly in the world.

It is said that wherever a picture of the Four Harmonious Friends is displayed, the ten virtues will increase, the minds of all will become harmonious, and many auspicious events will occur.
