Virtue and Reality
Virtue and Reality by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The teachings of the Buddha, can be divided into two overall categories: extensive method and profound wisdom. In the context of the teachings presented here, method is the loving, compassionate bodhicitta and wisdom is the realization of ultimate reality, the right view of emptiness. It would be hard to find a simpler, clearer, more practical explanation of these two fundamental paths than the one Lama Zopa offers us here. Through practicing method, we attain the holy body of a Buddha; through developing wisdom we attain the enlightened mind. The teachings presented here detail methods for developing compassion and wisdom in our everyday lives.
