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.
