About this title


This short practice specifically designed to benefit ants was compiled by Lama Zopa Rinpoche and is inspired by a text written by Ngulchu Dharmabhadra, a well-known yogi and lineage lama.Using food, visualization, blessed substances and mantras, we can free ants from the lower realms and plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mind streams.

As Lama Zopa Rinpoche reminds us, The ants cannot practice lam-rim; there is no way for them to learn. You can explain to them for 1 billion eons day and night without break for even a second that the cause of happiness is virtue, but there is no way they can learn. But now, by relying on this short practice, we can repay the kindness of our mother sentient beings the ants.

Spiral bound, 33 pages.

About the Author:

Lama Zopa Rinpoche: born in 1946 in Thami, in the Mount Everest region of Nepal, not far from the Lawudo cave where his predecessor had meditated for the last 20 years of his life. Lama Zopa Rinpoche is now the Spiritual Director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition and oversees all of its activities.

Ngulchu Dharmabhadra: Born in the upper region of Tsang Ya Ru'i Cha in the region of Rong To Chug Mo, in 1772. When he was eleven years old, he learned the alphabet from his elderly uncle. From then on, whenever he met someone learned, he would seize the opportunity to study the alphabet with them. As he spent most of his time tending sheep, whenever he found a flat, smooth rock or level ground, he would practice his writing using only his fingers, which would often cause them to bleed. This didn't discourage him, and he became an expert at reading and writing. Later on, this Venerable One was to become a holder of the treasury of secrets of all the conquerors.
