In these talks, Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche explain the great benefits of practicing Dharma as an ordained person, the purpose of the monastic community, and much more.

Three chapters of Advice for Monks and Nuns have now been translated into French by FPMT's French Translation Services. These comprise Lama Yeshe's first talk to a small group of Western students in December, 1973, and a second talk given over two nights in April, 1982.
