"Every time we offer service for others or even for one other being, we create far greater merit than from making offerings to all the buddhas.
In the Bodhicaryavatara, the great bodhisattva Shantideva says, 'Even thinking to really benefit others is much more meaningful than having made offerings to Buddha, so there is no question when one actually attempts to benefit others.' "
- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Working for LYWA is a wonderful way to join in the work of preserving, editing and publishing the teachings of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and other great teachers of our time.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche wrote to a student who had mentioned she was working for LYWA. Rinpoche said:
Thank you for your efforts for LYWA. Their books go all over the world and plant seeds of enlightenment, causes of liberation and the happiness of future lives. They help to develop wisdom and compassion, the path to enlightenment. Since the LYWA books go all over the world, they benefit sentient beings all over the world. Your efforts are benefiting the world, creating the cause of happiness and to achieve realizations and enlightenment. So always you should rejoice that with your work you are bringing sentient beings the greatest benefit, the Dharma.
We appreciate any help you can offer, and rejoice in the benefits of your work!
