Support Continues for Losang Namgyal Rinpoche's Ongoing Work in Nepal
The Nepal Earthquake Support Fund has been contributing to the work of Losang Namgyal Rinpoche’s Nepal Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund. Losang Namgyal Rinpoche, a Kopan Rinpoche and a high lama for the Tamang people, has been coordinating with Kopan on relief work and leading efforts to provide much needed short and long term aid to victims of the recent earthquakes in Nepal which destroyed more than 500,000 houses and 2,000 gompas and stupas, in about 14 districts. 

Providing essential food and medicine supplies to 5,000 families was the first priority in terms of short term aid. The second phase of support, which is now underway, is to help with temporary shelter. Tarpaulin and zinc sheets are being distributed to those who are unable to rebuild themselves due to illness, disability, old age, or lack of sufficient help. Volunteers are sent with supplies and also help to rebuild using the materials provided. The zinc sheets provide long lasting temporary roofing and can also be used for a permanent house in the future. Two bundles of sheets can provide temporary shelter through the monsoon season or until a permanent home can be rebuilt. 

The third phase of these efforts, which focuses on long term assistance, will be to help rebuild permanent houses, gompas, school, and other structures. The Nepal Earthquake Support Fund will try to continue to help Losang Namgyal Rinpoche with the short and long term relief being offered as well  as other beneficial projects contributing aid and rebuilding in Nepal.

Prostrations and Benefiting People You've Killed
In the past, a student of Lama Zopa Rinpoche killed his parents during a psychotic episode. Rinpoche gave him practice advice then and later the student wrote back, “These days, I do practice as you advised me to: Vajrasattva practice, prostrations to the 35 Buddhas, listening to the Sanghata Sutra, reading the Diamond Cutter Sutra. I also do Tara and the two mantras plus one hour and thirty minutes of meditation on the cushion. For the 35 Buddhas, I don’t do prostrations because of physical problems; I only do the recitation with my hands folded. Is that good enough? Also, I’m asking if I can practice tantra now or not.”

My most dear, most kind, most precious one,

One very good thing is that when you put your hands together to prostrate, visualize your body huge like a mountain range and think that you are prostrating with many bodies from all ten directions to the lam-rim merit field which has the 35 Buddhas there. Or, just to the 35 Buddhas. Or, even just to Buddha, but, the numberless direct and indirect lineage lamas; the numberless deities of four classes of tantra; the thousand buddhas of this fortunate eon; the bodhisattvas; the 16 Arhats and so forth; the dakas and dakinis and Dharma protectors are all in the Buddha whose essence is the guru. One is many and many are one. Then, visualize bodies filling all the Earth prostrating from all directions, huge bodies like a mountain range. If you have received the initiation of 1000-Armed Chenrezig, you can visualize that, if not, then just your ordinary body. If you visualize like that, you get the same merit as having done that many prostrations with that many bodies. This is specific advice from Lama Tsongkhapa – the way to collect the most extensive merit.

Regarding your question on tantra, any of the lower tantra initiations are OK. That’s very good. And I want to say billion, trillion, zillion times thanks now that you have no fear and your mind is developed and you are making your life most beneficial – especially most beneficial for your parents – not only to be free from the oceans of samsaric suffering, but also to achieve the peerless happiness of enlightenment. It is so good that you are inspiring others and also inspiring your psychiatrist to learn meditation. I wish that all the people in the world who create negative karma like this would change and make their lives better, more meaningful for those people who get killed.

With much love and prayers,

Lama Zopa

'The Main Thing Now Is Attainment'
”We have achieved a lot in Dharma education and study,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche said in March 2015 while visiting Root Institute in India. “Now we have to put effort in attaining the path. I don’t mean just doing three-year retreat and counting a certain number of mantras, but attainment of the path through the lam-rim. Realizations don’t have to come from being in formal retreat. One can achieve them while working and studying with meditation on the lam-rim. One can be doing business and studying and meditating on the lam-rim. You can have family and job and be meditating on the lam-rim. The main thing now is attainment.”

Fourth Round of 108 Nyung Näs at Institut Vajra Yogini
“Following up on the success of previous rounds of 108 nyung näs at Institut Vajra Yogini in France, the center started a fourth round in November 2014,” said director François Lecointre. “Midway through this fourth round, almost 600 nyung näs, an intensive two-day fasting retreat associated with Chenrezig, have already been accumulated by more than 80 different people. 

“Five people still intend to do the full 108 nyung näs. To make it possible for people to commit to the whole seven months of this intense practice, each year Lama Zopa Rinpoche, through the Practice and Retreat Fund, is personally sponsoring up to 10 people willing to do 100 nyung näs.

“By starting this yearly retreat, Institut Vajra Yogini wished to help in making one of Rinpoche’s Vast Visions come true – that some practitioners might succeed in this life to complete 1,000 nyung näs.

“The nyung näs are open to anyone who wishes to join them. Some people come for eight nyung näs, some for one, some for just one session. Ven. Charles, who has guided the previous rounds, leads in French, but several people follow simultaneously in English.

“This year, we hope to accumulate at least 1,000 nyung näs by the end of this seven-month retreat. It is great to have such an opportunity to rejoice! Wherever you are in the world, any day and anytime until the end of June 2015, you can visualize the retreatants at Institut Vajra Yogini generating bodhichitta, prostrating, fasting, accumulating mantras, praying for peace, and you can rejoice in that intense purification and accumulation of merit.”

To learn more or offer to sponsor a retreatant, contact Institut Vajra Yogini.

A fifth round will be organized from mid-November 2015 to the end of June 2016. Please contact Institut Vajra Yogini if you are interested in participating in any way.

Mandala brings you news of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and of activities, teachings and events from nearly 160 FPMT centers, projects and services around the globe. If you like what you read on Mandala, consider becoming a Friend of FPMT, which supports our work.

Life Is Full of Hope
“There’s a big difference between those who have met Dharma and those who have not met Dharma,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche says in a teaching in the just published Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive May E-letter. “By having met Dharma, you are full of inspiration. It’s a question of thinking, a question of meditating. Life is full of hope. Rather than feeling very down and hopeless, you feel your life is full of inspiration.

“Even if you are experiencing very heavy karma – you are missing limbs or something like that – even if in your mind you want to do something else but due to karma you don’t have the freedom to do it now, even if your life is not what you want, even if there is such a big problem, think, ‘This is temporary. What is happening to me won’t last forever. This is a causative phenomenon; it happened in dependence upon cause and conditions. This difficulty in my life happened due to cause and conditions, and due to another cause and conditions it will go away.’

“No matter how heavy the karma in your life is, no matter how much heavy karma you have created;  even if you have created some negative action that means you will be born in the hells for many billions of eons – according to their time, not human time, which is an incredible length of time – don’t just be sad about it. Just being sad about any problem or mistake that happens in your life is of no use. Remember your buddha nature, which is pure, which is not oneness with the mistakes. Remember that, and that you have all the potential, all the hope to develop your mind. Remember that you can be better, and then attempt the method to be better. …”

Why We Need the Three Jewels
“So, why do we take refuge?,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche asked during a 2013 refuge ceremony at Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore. “To be free from pervasive compounding suffering, from where the suffering of pain and the suffering of change arises – to be totally free from that, forever.

“To be able to help sentient beings, we have to be free from suffering. For example, if we are drowning in mud, how can we help others? If we are drowning in water, how can we help others? If we have no arms, how can we save others? To free ourselves from this suffering is not to achieve blissful peace for ourselves, but to help other sentient beings. The most important thing is to be able to help other sentient beings. We need to be free from suffering to do this.

“Just to be free from the lower realms, we don’t need to take refuge in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. We don’t need these three. Even if we just remember a monk or nun – somebody we have devotion to – when we die, we will never get reborn in the lower realms at the time of death. Even if we remember one Sangha to whom we feel devotion, or if we think of the Heart Sutra, for example, or some mantra or prayer that we remember, we will never get reborn in lower realms.

“But to be free from samsara – from the pervasive compounding suffering – we need to take refuge. We need to take refuge in Buddha who revealed the path, who revealed the teaching, and the actual refuge. Buddha is like the doctor and Dharma is like the medicine. The actual refuge is Dharma, like the medicine for sickness. Then, the Sangha is like the nurse. The Sangha becomes an example, helping us actualize refuge, Dharma, within our heart. That is Sangha. We need all three to have refuge, to be free from the pervasive compounding suffering from where true suffering arises. Until we are free from this, we suffer in samsara constantly, endlessly, from beginningless rebirth. We can’t help sentient beings perfectly; we cannot help others perfectly without mistakes.”

Excerpted from “The Real Refuge” section of “Seeing How the I Exists” (http://bit.ly/seeing-how-the-i-exists) made available by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.

Escape Problems Forever
“The wisdom realizing emptiness gives us the possibility to escape from problems forever,” said Lama Zopa Rinpoche in a 1990 teaching in Florence, Italy. “Achieving this ultimate happiness mainly depends on this realization. As I mentioned before, only the wisdom realizing emptiness can directly eradicate the ignorance which is the root of the whole samsaric suffering.Therefore, we should feel extremely fortunate and attempt to learn more, to listen, reflect and meditate more. As much as possible, in our everyday life we should attempt to meditate on emptiness even for a minute or a few seconds, especially once we have heard teachings that reveal the unmistaken view and we have some basic understanding of what ultimate nature means. Realizing emptiness gives us the opportunity to be free from the whole of samsara and all suffering.

“So, we should not waste time, we should not waste the opportunity. We must meditate as often as possible, even for a few seconds. We must meditate. Not meditating on emptiness, or not even remembering it for even one day is a great loss. Meditating on emptiness itself becomes great purification. For example, when it comes to purification methods in tantra and sutra, reading the Prajñaparamita teachings is one of the methods. Meditating on emptiness is one of the most powerful purifications.

“Even if you are doing Vajrasattva meditation, you are still advised to remember emptiness. The Vajrasattva recitation-purification becomes very powerful by remembering emptiness. Making offerings to these scriptures or copying them and meditating on them, are all regarded as very powerful purification practices. Anyway, you should not waste the opportunity, especially if you have studied these teachings and have some basic understanding of them. Even rising doubts about emptiness has a great effect – it shatters samsara into pieces.”

Excerpted from “Meditation on Emptiness and Tong-len (Taking and Giving)” (http://bit.ly/meditation-on-emptiness-and-tong-len) made available by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.

The Official Google+ Page for Venerable Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche —Spiritual Director of the FPMT
Introduction
Lama Zopa Rinpoche was born in 1946 in Thami, in the Mount Everest region of Nepal, not far from the Lawudo cave where his predecessor had meditated for the last 20 years of his life. Lama Zopa Rinpoche is now the Spiritual Director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition and oversees all of its activities.
