Description About the author Contents
Chatral Rinpoche is known as one of the most compassionate Bodhisattvas and greatest masters in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. In 1947 he was the head spritual master for Regent Reting, who was at the time the political ruler of Tibet. He is the vajra regent, or principal lineage holder of the three major lineages of the Nyingma School: Longchen Nyingthig, Dudjom Tersar, and Sera Khandro. He rescues millions of endagered animals each year and has been a strict vegetarian for over forty-five years. Now in his 90�s, he is as active as ever, helping humans and animals alike with an unfathomably deep compassion.

This is the first book in English dedicated to this living legend, and includes a biography, an autobiography, three of his essays, three prayers he composed and an exlusive interview.

5 of 5 Sogyal Rinpoche's endorsement of this great book. October 5, 2007
Reviewer: Zach Larson from Brooklyn, NY United States  
Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche...ranks today as the senior most teacher of the Dzogchen lineage. He is renowned throughout the Tibetan community as a steadfast guardian of the Buddhist tradition and a highly accomplished...adept, who, like the great sages and hermits of the past, has spent much of his life in retreat,... granting teachings only sparingly to a few committed disciples.

It is truly wonderful therefore that we now have this precious collection of his teachings and advice capably translated into English, enabling many more people to benefit from his boundless wisdom and compassion.  Rinpoche imparts his instructions in a forthright and elegant style and reveals his deep commitment to Buddhist ethics, his dedication to nonviolence and preserving life, and above all, his total dedication to the authentic teachings of Lord Buddha and Guru Padmasambhava.

Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.
