Lama Zopa Rinpoche has taught the Dharma for more than 40 years around the world to thousands of people and is highly appreciated for its special and unique qualities.

We give you a series of useful tips for new students, or those who come to Rinpoche's teachings for the first time:


Cuando Lama Zopa Rimpoché enseña, es con la motivación más pura de ofrecer el mayor beneficio a los estudiantes.

Rimpoché no sigue las convenciones de la enseñanza de acuerdo con el texto en cuestión, ni presta atención a las limitaciones del reloj. Con esto en mente, es mejor estar libre de cualquier expectativa al escucharle.


Rinpoche teaches in English, those who are new to the teachings of Rinpoche may have initial difficulties in understanding him.

To ensure that the teachings are well understood, they will be transcribed simultaneously in English and translated into Spanish.


Be prepared to be flexible with any changes that may occur in the program if Rinpoche deems it necessary.

As a fully qualified teacher, Rinpoche can sometimes modify the teaching schedule at very short notice.

If there were unforeseen changes, it is useful to remember the teachings about impermanence.
