Lama Zopa Rinpoche Encourages Sur Practice


A recent FPMT newsletter contains advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche in which he encourages his students and FPMT Centers to do the sur offering practice regularly.

On a personal note, you might have noticed based on this blog, that I’m deeply disturbed by the self-immolations in Tibet. For me, doing the sur practice has helped me reach out to those who have so bravely sacrificed themselves for religious freedom. The bardo beings are everywhere and can read our thoughts. Standing out in the cold, dark night on the edge of the solemn woods, drenched in the smoke and aroma of the charcoal and roasting offering substances, I find a way of connecting with their vulnerability. Above all, it’s my small way of repaying these martyrs’ incredible kindness.
