The Mani Book

Over the years Lama Zopa Rinpoche had collected a number of prayers and texts dedicated to Chenrezig, the Compassionate-Eye-Looking One, that he found particularly meaningful or efficacious for our needs.  Often referring to the collection as “The Mani Book”, Rinpoche’s intention was to have the prayers translated and published as a beautifully designed book. To fulfill Rinpoche’s holy wishes as quickly as possible, this online collection starts off with currently available translations, with others to be added when they get completed.
