Radiant Aspiration

Radiant Aspiration: the butterlamp prayer lamp of aspiration

Radiant aspiration was written by C.R. Lama while in retreat in Tso Pema in India and arose as a gesture of love and longing for his teacher, Tulku Tsorlo whom he had to leave in Tibet. While alive he offered 100,000 butterlamps each year with his disciples and this practice continues.
