Cutting the Root of Samsara eBook

Lam-rim Teachings from Kopan 1991, Volume 3
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Edited by Gordon McDougall and Sandra Smith

The third volume in a new series of Lama Zopa Rinpoche's teachings given during the 24th Kopan lam-rim course in 1991. This book presents a clear discussion on sexual misconduct, an explanation of how karmic appearance and emptiness are intertwined and a multifaceted commentary on the eight Mahayana precepts motivation.

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 second volume is Creating the Causes of Happiness and the fourth volume is Cherishing Others: The Heart of Dharma.
