Karma & The 12 Links

by Geshe Tenzin Zopa

Editor’s Note

“Karma” is a much used and abused word. Everyone seems to have their own understanding of it and uses this word to suit their own purposes – and often – without any semblance to its true meaning as taught by the one who revealed its essence, the Buddha.

This book is therefore an essential read on this cornerstone topic of Buddhist philosophy. The teachings here are extracted from the Dharma study course led by Geshe Tenzin Zopa, the engaging knowledgeable and straight-talking Resident Teacher at Losang Dragpa Centre.

Karma and the 12 Links of Interdependent Origination unveils how the law of cause and effect operates and worms it way into facet of our existence, life after life. At the same time, it offers us emancipation by providing the method to attain liberation from the confusion, dissatisfaction and unhappiness in our lives. It presents the time-space-mind continuum and places our present and future squarely within our hands and our control.

No more misinformation about “Karma”. No more excuses. No time to lose. Immerse yourself into Karma and the 12 Links.

The merits of this book are dedicated to the long life and accomplished wishes of HH Dalai Lama, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Khenrinpoche Lhudrup Rigsel and our Geshe Tenzin Zopa, who have remained with us to guide us, to counsel us, to encourage us, when the Masters of old have long left us wandering in spiritual blindness. These Teachers have remained to dispel the miseries of our world. Such is their kindness to us all.

Ask The Geshe

by Geshe Tenzin Zopa

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times

Editor’s Note

Ask the Geshe stares into the core of our burning questions and niggling curiosities. It is a collection of maladies, musings and mind-jolting questions raised to Geshe Tenzin Zopa. Resident Teacher of Losang Dragpa Centre by ordinary people who are in crisis, in search and in hope. The issues range from the Why-Me laments, to how-to-get-rich-quick-pleas, to lab-babies & surrogate motherhood, to relationship problems and philosophical ponderings of what Reality really is. It holds answers to things we want to know about but were afraid to ask or didn’t know whom to ask.

With the classic openness of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Geshe Tenzin Zopa deftly engages with these questions head on – and some of the answers are uncomfortable to receive – yet difficult to refute due to the power of logic. Ask the Geshe clarifies life’s murky waters with the clear light of Buddhist thinking.

Dhama texts use the analogy of life and one’s realized potential as being like a muddy pond through which the perfect, unstained lotus-blossom can emerge and thrive. Let Ask the Geshe and the poignant advice it carries, be the catalyst for your emergence from life’s muddy pond.

This book is dedicated to our Guru’s HH Dalai Lama, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Khenrinpoche Lhundrup Rigsel and our Geshe Tenzin Zopa, with our heartfelt thanks and choking relief, for their courage to jump into the muddy pond to fish us out.

Mirror to Your Life

Commentary on Dharmaraksita’s Wheel of Sharp Weapons by Geshe Tenzin Zopa

Editor’s Note
Trembling in amazement and horror .. it felt like an electric current was running through one’s veins. That’s what reading the verse of the Wheel of Sharp Weapons does to you. Combine that with Geshe Tenzin Zopa’s mastery at clarifying the verses and integrating real life examples into them and you find yourself in the raw – stripped of all hypocrisy, denial and excuses, with nowhere to hide. Such is the potent clarity of “Mirror to Your Life”, Geshela’s commentary on this extraordinary text by Dharmaraksita.

If you want an answer to the “Why Me?” question, this book holds all you need to know. “Can I free myself from misery?” this book says Yes.
During the classes where these teachings were given, LDC students presented summaries of the teachings for the benefit of those who missed the previous class or needed their understanding refreshed. Geshela invited those students to offer their “takeaway lessons” arising from their doing the summaries, to be part of this book and these appear at the back of this volume.
In celebration of the Guru-Buddhas who live amongst us to pull us out of the snake-pit of ordinary existence and with deep gratitude & undying devotion to Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche and our Geshe Tenzin Zopa, all efforts in producing this book are dedicated to our Guru’s long lives, excellent health and fulfilled wishes.
