Overview

Perhaps no other figure of Tibetan Buddhism today is so committed to the contemporary relevance of its traditional views as Lama Zopa. In Dear Lama Zopa, he shares letters from advice-seekers around the globe, each reproduced with his always inspired, often surprising replies. Lama Zopa’s counsel, radical as it may seem, is all about how to handle life’s problems big and small, age-old and modern: from final exams, depression, and eating disorders to jealousy, aging, and loss. The key is to consciously work to perceive our problems differently, and in so doing see that we can be victors, not victims. The result is what Lama Zopa has dedicated his life to: our real, persisting happiness.

Editorial Reviews

Mandala
"An absolute jewel of a book, packed with unbelievably precious advice."
Utne Reader
"A wise and inspiring teacher."
Buddhadharma
"Dear Lama Zopa presents this teacher's intriguing and often helpful correspondence with students who have asked for guidance on topics ranging from addiction to war. Lama Zopa Rinpoche consistently responds with frankness and compassion and repeatedly stresses that the conditions in which we find ourselves are the results of our own karma, and, as a corollary, that we have the ability to improve our own existence. Moreover, he drives home the message that our personal circumstances are meaningful only in so far as they are opportunities to develop and practice compassion for self and other."
