Lama Zopa Rinpoche Practice Series and Teaching Archive

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Practice Series

The Lama Zopa Rinpoche Practice Series (LZRPS) was conceived with the aim of publishing Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s practice text compilations, compositions, and translations. The materials in the series incorporate and exemplify Rinpoche’s personal style of practice and are aimed at ensuring the preservation of Rinpoche’s unique oral instructions and lineage. The LZRPS also highlights the centrality and importance of Rinpoche and his works to the FPMT as whole and thus forms the heart of the FPMT’s collection of practice texts.
