Product description


Lama Zopa Rinpcohe reveals the essential meaning of an ancient text he discovered in a cave high in the Himalayas of Nepal. As Rinpoche says, "Only when I read this text did I come to know what the practice of Dharma really means." This text, Opening the Door of Dharma, captures the essential point of all Buddhist training: whether any activity becomes a basis for lasting happiness and inner peace depends entirely on your motivation. Without proper motivation, it does not matter what we do - making prayers, meditating, enduring great hardships - that action does not become a Dharma practice and will not lead to liberation. Proper motivation transcends the fleeting desires of this one life and ultimately seeks the happiness of all beings. "In your life," says Rinpoche, "there is nothing to do other than to work for others, to cherish others. There is nothing more important in your life than this."

Format: Paperback
Thegreat merit of this book is its clarity. The teachings are not different from similar books, but they are presented with enthusiasm and ease of reading. The author wants to burn away any doubts the reader may have about the core concepts in Buddhism. One could say that from that point of view some people will consider the book dogmatic. There is however no doubt about the good intentions of the lama. Using forceful simple language is for many people the only way that will stimulate them to act and not read it out of curiosity. Just as an example of the forceful language. "Just like hallucinogenic drugs, wrong conceptions make our mind hallucinate. In reality the "I" is completely empty, there is nothing to cherish. Self-cherishing is completely silly and only creates problems. I think the book is useful for beginners as it is very short and clear. For more experienced readers it provides an excellent summary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review froma spiritual seeker 29 Aug. 2008
By Vincent N. Autier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been reading a lof of books from mainly well know spiritual leader, such as the Dalai Lama, Gandhi, Thich Nhat Hanh, and others. Lama Zopa Rinpoche in this book "door to satisfaction" as a way to communicate similar ideas which touched me at a much deeper level. After being done reading this book, I will not put it on the shelf but keep it on my bedside table, as it is a reference to return to. It opened the desire to not only practice Dharma in my own mind and home but to also go to Nepal and take a course from this buddhist master. I hope sincerely that this book will be as beneficial for you as it is for me. Namaste.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essence of BuddhaDharma 31 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is truly a rare and precious treasure. There are many books out about Buddhism, but for those interested in actually practicing in order to subdue their minds, this one is particularly relevant. Within it you will discover the essential key to transforming the mind; the true doorway that differentiates spiritual practice from mere spiritual materialism.
