His Holiness the Dalai Lama (in the picture with Lama Zopa Rinpoche) composed a beautiful swift return prayer for Lama Zopa Rinpoche with an extremely moving colophon.

Other distinguished lamas, with whom Lama Zopa Rinpoche had a strong connection in this lifetime, also spontaneously composed swift return prayers for Rinpoche and are being gathered by FPMT.
