In 1975 Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche made the first of many trips to Europe. Their first stop was in London, where they taught a weekend seminar on Buddhist path to enlightenment. This included teachings on the nature of the mind, the perfect human rebirth, the nature of samsara, compassion and wisdom. This is a historical footage and the Lamas' 1975 world tour really laid the foundation for the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), now the largest Tibetan Buddhist organization in the world.
