Many lineages of chanting come from great yogis who either made it up or heard it chanted by dakinis—by using that chanting you receive the blessing of that lama or of the dakas and dakinis.
- Lama Zopa Rinpoche
In this teaching, Lama Zopa Rinpoche primarily focuses on the chanting for the Guru Puja. First Rinpoche introduces why it is important to learn the chanting, different lineages, the motivation for chanting, and how to set about learning the chanting. Rinpoche then begins teaching three different speeds of chanting to be used for the Guru Puja in the FPMT, from Refuge to the Invocation of the Merit Field (LC 1-17). Rinpoche's own chanting is presented here using two different sources: audio from the Light of the Path retreat in USA 2009 and video from the Lama Zopa Australia retreat in Bendigo 2014.
