FPMT’s spiritual director Lama Zopa Rinpoche never stops working to benefit sentient beings. Over the years, Rinpoche’s students have shared countless stories of Rinpoche forgoing sleeping, eating or having any concern for himself so that he can do another puja before rushing to the airport, or teaching students into the early morning hours so that they have the complete transmission, or stopping the car to liberate the worms on the road or the goat waiting outside the butcher’s door. Rinpoche embodies the attitude of a bodhisattva; Rinpoche’s every action is a cause for the complete enlightenment for all beings.
By supporting the Work a Day for Rinpoche Fund, we can all aspire to making our day-to-day efforts at work and home more meaningful and beneficial. The idea is simple. Work a Day for Rinpoche is celebrated on Saka Dawa, the day commemorating Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana. As it is a Buddha Day, virtuous activities performed on Saka Dawa are multiplied one hundred million times. So when you contribute to this fund by dedicating your virtuous activities and part of your salary earned on Saka Dawa to helping realize Rinpoche’s wish to transmit the Mahayana Buddhist tradition worldwide, your virtuous activity generates enormous merit.
Donations made to this fund go to FPMT International Office, which works to support Rinpoche’s vast vision. If you are inspired by Rinpoche’s limitless compassion, please consider making a contribution to the Work a Day for Rinpoche Fund.
