Lama Chopa Zoom Class


Lama Chopa Class

Lama Chopa is a key practice observed in the Gelukpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. It translates as “Offering to the Guru” and is one of two major lineages of Guru Yoga devoted to Je Tsongkapa called the Ensapa lineage. It was passed down secretly until written down in the 1600s by Losang Chokyi Gyaltsen. According to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, “Guru yoga is not just a practice where one visualizes a deity and then makes seven-limbed offerings, but rather it is where one views one’s own guru as a real Buddha from the depths of one’s heart. Having cultivated such an attitude and strong faith, one then engages in actually pleasing the guru by following his advice.” The profound practice of Lama Chopa is very complete and includes all the elements of the path to enlightenment.
