      Sanghata Sutra   On how to make the 15 Days of Miracles most beneficial, Lama Zopa Rinpoche said: “This is the best and most exciting time, whatever practice or virtue we do, the merit is increased 100 million times. So please especially do recitations of the Arya Sangatasutra as much as you can, when you can.”  The Sanghata Sutra is a direct teaching by the Buddha that promises to transform all who read or recite it. 

      Golden Light Sutra   Lama Zopa Rinpoche urges us to recite the Sutra of Golden Light every day. The benefits from reciting, listening to, or even hearing the name of the sutra are immeasurable, from eliminating conflict, terrorism, torture and famine to achieving full enlightenment.
