Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"We finally have a wonderful testament to the wisdom, compassion, and erudition of one of Tibet's greatest twentieth-century Buddhist masters, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Those who have had the good fortune to listen to the late Kyabje Rinpoche will recognize the immediacy, freshness, and humor of this great master's teachings, captured beautifully in this wonderful book. With this book, the translators have also brought an important aspect of Tsongkhapa's more mystical teachings to the English-speaking world."—Thupten Jinpa

"The great modern Tibetan master Kyabje Zong Rinpoche provides detailed instructions for the practice of Chöd, along with bone-chilling and often humorous tales of Chöd masters and their students."—Tricycle

"An excellent survey of one of the finest Tibetan masters of our times. . . . Any collection strong in Tibetan Buddhist principles must have this."—Midwest Book Review
