The Power of the Eight Auspicious Signs and Four Harmonious Brothers


Lama Zopa Rinpoche sent the following advice to a student who had slowly drifted apart from his son until there was no contact between them. The student had also lost two partners to cancer.


It is very good if you keep a lot of the eight auspicious signs. Keep different kinds—cloth, thangkas or wooden ones—all together or separate. Also there are many images of the four harmonious brothers, so you can try to get different kinds and have them around.





Yes, it is karma, that is the basic thing. The eight auspicious signs and the four harmonious brothers are for protection from harm and for success.


Do your practice well. Abandon negative karma as much as possible and practice good karma. Especially transform your mind from ego, from self-cherishing, to cherishing others and if possible into bodhichitta.

How to Practice While Walking or Traveling


A student was taking time off after serving at a center for ten years and was planning to do a walking retreat for several months. Lama Zopa Rinpoche offered this advice:


Yes, doing 200,000 Vajrasattva mantras as you walk is very good. You can do this as if you are making pilgrimage, and at the same time you can do a sort of retreat, like Vajrasattva, while you are walking. Also you can do things like refuge or reciting OM MANI PADME HUM and so forth.


Many years ago, His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave Chenrezig initiation and the commitment was 600,000 recitations of OM MANI PADME HUM. I met a very learned, expert monk in philosophy who had taken the initiation. He was making pilgrimage in Nepal and at the same time reciting OM MANI PADME HUM, the commitment he had received from His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He did this while he was travelling. Of course he was very busy at his monastery, reading texts, teaching and educating others, and learning himself. So he did the commitment immediately like this, with pilgrimage in Nepal.





It’s incredible to use the time like this. It’s so profitable and meaningful, instead of complaining, “I can’t get it done. I don’t have time, blah, blah,” but at the same time having so much time for gossiping and many other things, like eating, drinkingand so forth.


Also during the walk or pilgrimage or while travelling, you can, for example, do lamrim meditation. It’s not always necessary to be in a room, sitting on a cushion and closing your eyes. You don’t always need to do that.





You can follow the lamrim outline on guru devotion for however many months you are travelling. Meditate on guru devotion by following the outline, to develop from your side the realization that sees the guru as all the buddhas—one guru as all the buddhas and one buddha as all the gurus—until you are able to realize this from your side, without effort, stable.


Whenever you have this stable realization for weeks, months and years, for your whole life, then come all the realizations up to omniscience, including the three principal aspects of the path (the foundation) and tantra (the two stages) up to the omniscient mind. Then you can even achieve enlightenment in one life. You can achieve enlightenment quickly, in a brief lifetime of this degenerate time, like Gyalwa Ensapa, Chökyi Dorje, Milarepa and many others.

Numberless Bodhisattvas Love You Very Much




Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave this thank you note to a volunteer in October 2017.






All your past happiness from beginningless rebirths and now your future happiness up to enlightenment is received from every sentient being. This includes every single comfort, even sleep and the small pleasures. It all comes from every hell being; from every single hungry ghost; from every single animal, those on the oceans that are large like whales, and those small like flies that run away when you walk in the grass; from every single ant; from the insects in the bushes, in the trees and in the sky; from the numberless human beings in numberless universes; from the numberless sura beings and numberless asura beings; from everyone.


Even Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha that we always take refuge in, so we can become free from samsara and achieve lower nirvana and enlightenment—even Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha come from numberless sentient beings.


That means sentient beings are the most precious ones, the most kind ones. Even without talking about the happiness of past lives or future lives, everything comes from sentient beings—every single comfort, our house, food, clothes, everything.


Therefore, by volunteering, by working here, this is the best thing. This is the best purification of your negative karmas and obscurations collected from beginningless rebirths, and in order to collect extensive merits and become the cause of enlightenment—by working here, by developing the good heart, bodhichitta, for every single sentient being, including the insects, the ants, that the numberless bodhisattvas cherish the most.


Every single person that you take care of, numberless bodhisattvas cherish them the most. Every single insect that you take care of, move out of the way or save from the water, numberless bodhisattvas cherish them the most and they love you very much, your work.

The Benefits of Cooking Delicious Food for Others Including the Guru


In July 2016 Lama Zopa Rinpoche sent the following advice to a cook at a Dharma center:


The essence of the Mahayana teaching is to let go of the I and to cherish others who are numberless. Even by cherishing one sentient being, that brings enlightenment to you. That means you are able to free all sentient beings from the oceans of suffering and bring them to the peerless happiness, buddhahood—the total cessation of obscurations and completion of realizations.


That is why even if one insect falls in the water, to arise compassion and help that insect is so important. Or if an animal, such as an ant, is attacked by another animal, to help rescue it with compassion. Also to help even one person with problems, with suffering, for example, to help rescue someone or to help someone who is suicidal, to help them not to be suicidal.


It is said in the Chenrezig sutra Well-Condensed Dharma, that you don’t need to follow many Dharmas, only one, which is compassion. If you have compassion then the whole Buddhadharma comes, which means in your heart, all the understanding of the words and all the realizations. The conclusion is that if there is compassion you can achieve enlightenment. Without compassion, no enlightenment.





Relating to cooking, it is very important. As you know, cooking gives so much happiness to sentient beings. What I have heard from Kopan is that the food is very good and even if people don’t like the meditation course, they stay.


So that helps them and even if they do not understand the teachings or the meditations, they stay, and it leaves a positive imprint in their mind. Besides that, they achieve everlasting happiness, nirvana. This is one example related to the Kopan courses in Nepal or the Tushita courses in Dharamsala.


I like to make food for people because it pleases their mind very much. When you know how to make different food delicious, one of the greatest benefits is that you can invite your gurus and make food for them. They enjoy it and you collect the greatest merit and this becomes the greatest purification.


That means especially by pleasing the guru it becomes a quick way to achieve enlightenment. So many negative karmas get purified on the way. By making delicious food, you make the guru happy.





Before you made the food offering you would be reborn in the hells but by offering food and pleasing the guru you will be reborn in the pure land, or at least have a perfect human body, meet Dharma and actualize the path, and then achieve enlightenment.


This benefit is not only relating to food, it’s anything that pleases the guru. Previously you would have been reborn in the lower realms, but if you please the guru you will be reborn in the pure realm, or become a human, become a monk. It changes from second to second, your whole karma changes your rebirth.


This is something you must keep in your heart and not forget. This is the way to make your life most meaningful.

We Experience the Result for Eons


A student wrote to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, asking if he should give his brother a large sum of money as requested to help a girl sold into prostitution. In his response Rinpoche advised the student to think of this payment as a past karmic debt and gave the following teaching on karma:


You should know that karma is definite, which means it definitely brings the result. From virtue the result is definitely happiness, and from nonvirtue the result is definitely suffering.


A suffering result now comes from non-virtue, if the non-virtue is not completely purified and if it hasn’t met the conditions that make it extinct. Similarly with virtue, [the result is happiness] if it’s not destroyed by heresy, anger and so forth.


The second outline of karma is that it is expandable. You have to know that by making charity just one time you will experience the result for many lifetimes, for many eons. This is what you have to really know, to recognize. Happiness is not just received one time from virtue and then it is finished. This is what many people may think, but it’s not correct. We experience the result for eons. We have to experience the result, happiness, for eons. Similarly, we experience suffering as a result of non-virtue. It’s not just one time that we experience it and it’s finished; we have to experience it for eons.


We have to understand that if the karma is not created then the result never happens. If the karma is created then the resultant suffering or happiness—whether great or small—never gets lost, even if it was created billions, zillions, trillions of years ago. We still have to experience the result of negative karma from billions, zillions, trillions of years ago, not just from this past life.


People wonder why in the beginning they have a beautiful body and then suddenly it becomes defective, or they have a lot of mental and physical suffering. So much unimaginable suffering happens, which could be from karma created numberless eons ago. People are very surprised, and they think, “Oh, I haven’t done bad things in this life, so why am I experiencing this now?” Most people think it is just [experienced in] one life. Maybe some people think of karma created from past lives, but most don’t think it can be karma created billions or zillions of eons ago, numberless eons ago. Most people don’t think like that.


In the Tengyur—the commentaries of the great pandits from Nalanda on the Buddha’s teachings in the Kangyur—the Buddha said:



Any sentient being who, during the period of my teachings,

Makes charity well (even if the material is the size of a hair)

For 80,000 eons there will be great results of great enjoyment:

No pain, no disease, and enjoyment of happiness.

Like that, one will be enriched with the desirable things.

At the end you can actually achieve the result—the peerless cessation and completion (enlightenment).



After hearing that there is the great result, who wouldn’t want to collect merit?


There is also a quote similar to this in the Arya Sanghata Sutra by the Buddha.

Living in Vows Makes Your Life So Precious [Video]


In a short video clip from a teaching given at the 2016 Light of the Path retreat, Lama Zopa Rinpoche explains the benefits of living in vows. Rinpoche teaches that taking vows is so powerful that it’s mentioned that right after taking vows, before they have degenerated, any prayers you make are fulfilled.


Whether one is a novice monk or nun with thirty-six vows, a fully ordained monk with 253 vows, a fully ordained nun, or a lay person holding vows such as the eight Mahayana precepts, Rinpoche emphasizes the importance of living in your vows: “For you it is unbelievable, unbelievable! Then for numberless sentient beings, if you dedicate with bodhichitta for sentient beings, wow, wow, wow!”


By keeping a larger number of vows, your prayers are even more powerful. Rinpoche explains that this is why people living in Buddhist countries like Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Myanmar ask monasteries and nunneries to do prayers and pujas for people who have died, are sick, and are experiencing difficulties in business and so forth. Rinpoche notes that people also ask the Tibetan monasteries and nunneries. 


“You see the difference, living in vows, which are such powerful objects,” Rinpoche says. “You understand the point. Then all these, it is unbelievable, so beneficial for sentient beings—even prayers and pujas, whatever you do—they are so powerful for sentient beings.”


“First you take the precepts, and as you take more and more precepts, you become more and more powerful for sentient beings. For sentient beings you are like Dzambala, bringing wealth and all the prayers for sentient beings. This happens because you are living in pure vows, taking higher ordination.”


“Because your prayers and pujas are so powerful, when sentient beings make offerings they collect so much merit. So it helps so much. It is so easy to have success for others, like Dzambala bringing success, wealth, and so forth.”


Rinpoche teaches that having a precious human rebirth, and especially if you are a member of the Sangha, then you must realize it is incredible and unbelievable how much you can benefit sentient being: “You should rejoice! You should enjoy your life! You should rejoice in your life all the time!”


By realizing the benefits, Rinpoche says, there is no room in your heart or mind for depression for even an hour or a minute; you are only full of joy.

New Video: The Six Shortcomings of Samsara


In this short video clip from a teaching given at the 2016 Light of the Path retreat, Lama Zopa Rinpoche urges us to liberate ourselves from samsara.


Lama Zopa Rinpoche instructs us that when our husband or wife meets somebody and has a relationship with that person, we have to remember the six shortcomings of samsara.


“There is nothing definite in samsara; the friend, enemy, stranger changes. In the morning they are a friend, in the evening an enemy, in the afternoon a friend, in the evening an enemy, today a friend, tomorrow an enemy, a friend this week, next week an enemy, this month a friend, next month enemy, this year friend, next year friend,” Rinpoche says.


Our relationship with that person also changes from life to life, and it has been like this from beginningless rebirths. Rinpoche says, “In beginningless samsara you have been friends, enemies, and strangers numberless times. You see, that is the nature of samsara.”


Rinpoche continues, “If you yourself are free from samsara then you don’t have to be attached. If you don’t have to be attached, then you don’t have to be angry. You are unattached. You don’t need it at all. You are totally free.”


Rinpoche then explains where we made our mistake. “Because you didn’t actualize the four noble truths, the true cause of suffering, true cessation, and the true path; because of that mistake, you are still in samsara; and torture yourself all the time,” he says. “I have to say it that way, otherwise it is just words, the lamrim is just words. It is really talking about life, so you need to practice.”


He recommends starting with renunciation and not thinking that the other person is torturing us: “No, think that it is your own problem because in the past life you didn’t actualize the path. In this life you didn’t actualize the path.”


Next, practice bodhichitta. “That sentient being is totally controlled by attachment. It is the same as being possessed by a spirit. You need to help them. As you meditate on kindness while walking, it is so important to help, to practice kindness.”


Then reflect on emptiness. Rinpoche says, “All the rest is hallucination. There can be great peace when you think of hallucination. We don’t have to speak of tantra; just lamrim is amazing.”

Keep Your Wisdom in the Pure Path


In this short video clip from a teaching given at the 2016 Light of the Path retreat, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, while explaining the meaning of a Tibetan phase, discusses the importance of studying one path well in order to avoid confusion and the degeneration of one’s wisdom.


“Keep your wisdom in the pure path,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche instructs. “Pure view, pure conduct, a subdued mind, wisdom.”


In order to do this, Rinpoche advises to not dilute and confuse your efforts by trying many types of teachings.


“You start this, then start this, start this, start this,” Rinpoche says with this hand gesturing in different directions. “Then your wisdom is not set in the best direction, best view, best conduct.”


You even become unsure and unclear about Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings, Rinpoche explains. When you try different things, “at the end you are lost, at the end you are not sure, you are confused.”


However, after studying well on one path and making sure that you have correct meditation, conduct, and view, Rinpoche says, then when you learn about other paths, due to that correct basis, you are able to understand, to recognize other methods and paths, and to be able to discriminate between them.


It is like going to a buffet at a restaurant and tasting all the different food. If you do that with the teachings, you could end up like someone for whom Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings mean nothing.


“What is mediation, what is conduct, what is pure view—the real path,” Rinpoche warns that those things could mean nothing to you. “You are lost.”
