Podcast episode

While staying at Kopan Monastery during the COVID-19 lockdown, Lama Zopa Rinpoche is recording video teachings on thought transformation (lojong). In these teachings, Rinpoche urges us to use these difficult times to develop our Dharma practice.

While offering advice, oral transmissions, and instruction on practice, Rinpoche emphasizes the opportunities available to us to transform our minds using the Buddha’s teachings. By looking at the pandemic with Dharma in our minds, our daily practice of bodhicitta and wisdom can be quickly developed so that we can be most beneficial. 

You can read an in-depth summary of Rinpoche’s thought transformation teachings given in 2020 in the Mandala 2021 article “The Time to Practice Is Now.”

Coming Soon: Lama Zopa Rinpoche Essential Extracts Podcast

We have plans to launch a second podcast soon. The episodes in this podcast will be extracts from longer teachings of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, capturing the essence of what Rinpoche taught.

These extracts, which range from five minutes to over an hour, are already available as videos on our website. In our podcast we will focus on edited extracts between fifteen and thirty minutes. These teachings will cover many lamrim topics. The lamrim is a textual tradition that organizes Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings into a complete step-by-step path to enlightenment. For more on lamrim and resources to support your lamrim practice, please see our lamrim page.
