Lama Zopa Rinpoche continues teaching at the Light of the Path, the two-week lam-rim retreat series hosted by Kadampa Center in Black Mountain, North Carolina, United States. Students attending the retreat, like Mayra Rocha Sandoval (right), have been rejoicing that they have been able to hear Rinpoche’s animated and energetic lam-rim teachings every day. For those not at Light of the Path, teaching sessions continue to be webcast live as well as made available as recorded video. 

Mayra flew from Mexico to attend Light of the Path and holds the honorable distinction of having completed a three-year lam-rim retreat, a rare accomplishment, at Rinpoche’s request. If three years’ devotion to practice weren’t inspiring enough, Mayra completed the retreat at home, in bustling Mexico City. You can read more about her fascinating story in Mandala‘s October-December 2013 interview, now available on mandala.fpmt.org.

The retreat concludes on Sunday, May 18. Rinpoche travels next to Italy for the teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama hosted by Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa. 

For more on the teachings, visit the Living in the Path course resource page, where materials from all three years of Light of the Path events are being made available.
