EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION

In the spring of 1997, i used to be doing retreat in a single of the Vajrapani Institute's beautiful cabins while I heard that Zopa Rinpoche used to be arriving to wait an FPMT board assembly. That spring, His Holiness the Dalai Lama had given Yamantaka initiation and statement, and that i had a number of questions concerning the security wheel perform. nearly miraculously, Rinpoche had the time to determine me and that i posed my questions. He answered in brief, and concluded by way of asserting that others would wish to benefit approximately this too, so he could train it to the practitioners within the region. I marveled on the success of having the ability to listen to the extra wide teachings workforce surroundings could provide.

In Rinpoche's regular sort, earlier than he taught the safety wheel element of the sadhana, he lined the previous meditations and therefore gave in-depth teachings at the 4 immeasurables, vacancy, and taking demise because the route to dharmakaya. I later transcribed and edited these teachings to create this book.
