The Heart of the Path Book

Seeing the Guru as Buddha
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
fpmt lineage series

Without guru devotion, nothing happens—no realizations, no liberation, no enlightenment—just as without the root of a tree there can be no trunk, branches, leaves or fruit. Everything, up to enlightenment, depends on guru devotion.
– Lama Zopa Rinpoche

This book presents extensive teachings on guru devotion by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, a contemporary exemplar of the practice. Rinpoche explains the importance of the spiritual teacher, advises the correct way to develop a student-teacher bond, and offers commentary on each traditional guru devotion sub-topic found in Lama Tsongkhapa’s lam-rim. Drawn from more than fifty teachings, this book is the result of seven years of editing by Ven. Ailsa Cameron.
