Ignorance has been our guru and we have been listening to everything it says with total trust up to now.
-Lama Zopa Rinpoche
In this title, Lama Zopa Rinpoche looks clearly at our motivation for taking the eight Mahayana precepts and helps us see the four mistaken ways of viewing ourselves and the world. These four wrong concepts have kept us trapped and suffering in cyclic existence from beginningless time. The main wrong concept is ignorance—the self-grasping of the person and of the aggregates—which is the originator of the others.
