The Lama Chopa or Guru Puja is a practice of guru yoga specific to the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. This practice is a devotional offering to the spiritual guide. This new version put together to music by Rob Preece is to be sung in English along to the tradtional Tibetan melodies.
There are many guru yoga sadhanas, but Lama Chopa is the most popular and sacred text. A special practice of Lama Tsong Khapa, the Lama Chopa was compiled by the first Panchen Lama. Lama Chopa became so popular in Tibet and Mongolia that almost every Gelugpa monk had it memorized and recited it on a daily basis.
Lama Chopa is considered to be a highest yoga tantra practice. It contains the idea of personal transformation through the practitioner merging his or her mind with the guru as the meditational deity. The essence of the practice is to see the guru as an enlightened being, a Buddha, and to receive their blessings.
