Living in the Path:The Happiness of Dharma

Realizing the Lamrim: Perfect Human Rebirth


In the Happiness of Dharma, Lama Zopa Rinpoche gives teachings on the subject of the precious, or perfect, human rebirth and shows us how all our happiness comes from practicing Dharma.

When constantly the mind is living in Dharma, you are constantly creating the cause of happiness, enlightenment. Then the happiness of future lives comes by the way. Even though you are not looking for that, the cause of that naturally happens. Even if you are totally detached from this life, but if you are practicing Dharma, then, by the way, the happiness of this life comes. It comes from Dharma. (Lama Zopa Rinpoche) 

Extracted from the Light of the Path Retreat 2010 held in North Carolina, USA.

These teachings were originally included in Living in the Path, Module 6: The Happiness of Dharma.
