Creating the Causes of Happiness eBook

Lam-rim Teachings from Kopan 1991, Volume 2
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Edited by Gordon McDougall and Sandra Smith

The second volume in a new series of Lama Zopa Rinpoche's teachings given during the 24th Kopan lamrim course in 1991. This book covers topics such as the nature of the mind, karma, death, reincarnation and emptiness and is interwoven with an extensive and illuminating logical debate between Rinpoche and a student on whether past and future lives exist.

This series consists of four volumes of lightly edited transcripts that we hope will convey the feeling of being in Nepal for the one-month Kopan course. The first volume is titled Practicing the Unmistaken Path, the third volume is Cutting the Root of Samsara, and the fourth volume is Cherishing Others: The Heart of Dharma.
