Publisher's Summary

Buddhism is a house full of treasures – practices for gaining the happiness of future lives, the bliss of liberation and the supreme happiness of enlightenment – but knowing the difference between Dharma and non-Dharma practices is the key that opens the door to all those treasures. No matter how much we know about emptiness, the chakras or controlling our vital energy through kundalini yoga, it's all pointless without this crucial understanding of how to practice Dharma, how to correct our actions.
"There are vast numbers of people who delude themselves and waste their entire life studying the most esoteric aspects of Buddhism but never understand the most fundamental point, the distinction between Dharma and non-Dharma. Even if we understand nothing else, if, by recognizing the eight worldly dharmas, we can clearly differentiate between what is Dharma and what is not Dharma, we're very fortunate. This is the essential point." – Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
The Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive brings you the collected works of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The Archive was founded in 1996 by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the Archive’s spiritual director, and works to offer the Dharma in as many ways as possible for the happiness and benefit of all beings.

A total game-changer -in enabling tru renunciation

What did you love best about How to Practice Dharma?

This book enabled me to clearly recognize how the 8 worldly dharmas (worldly attachments) have been holding me in slavery to desires & aversions, and to immediately begin applying the methods and freeing myself of these. Life Changing! A month after hearing this, I have shed off 3 prominent decades-long addictions, and it has changed my dharma practice so greatly! DO get this book if it's freedom you wish for!
Everything is explained incredibly clearly.

Not for me

The way is told is not a way that works for me very dualistic and overly generalize things and make many assumptions. the fattest sometimes you can be blinded by traditions teachers lack of understanding you seem to be present in this audiobook I may just not understand and the way he wants to be understood or maybe my experience is different but I will say no thank you
