Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé (1813-1899) was one of the most influential figures and prolific writers in the Tibetan Buddhist world. He was a founder and the single most important proponent of the nonsectarian movement that flourished in eastern Tibet and remains popular today. Two additional texts discuss his previous lives and recount Kongtrul's final days. "Filled with insight into the human heart. It stands out as a superb example of a genuinely unbiased approach to spirituality, which is of particular relevance to our modern world."--The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche "More than a biography, the story of the extraordinary Kongtrul is an inspiration to all serious students of Buddhist practice and scholarship. Unparalleled in benefiting beings, his life exemplifies the most noble of human endeavors--the accomplishment of receiving and practicing, codifying and transmitting, the entirety of Tibet's spiritual traditions. We are fortunate that one of the most gifted translators of our times, Richard Barron, has brought forth this treasure."--Erik Pema Kunsang, translator of Kongtrul's "Light of Wisdom" series "Reading the autobiography of this supreme master gives us an understanding of the truly wondrous deeds that bodhisattvas perform, filling our minds with awe and our hearts with faith. It inspires us to actualize our own inherent potential that allows the qualities of the bodhisattvas to manifest within ourselves. This book is a priceless treasure to be studied and revered."--Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche "To glimpse the origins of Buddhism in Tibet, we must read accounts of the lives of such masters as Milarepa and Guru Rinpoch8}É{c9}é. To survey Tibetan Buddhism at its fullest flowering many centuries later, we must read this book, the autobiography of the lama who gave Tibetan Buddhism its definitive form. Richard Barron, brilliant translator of some of the most important Buddhist texts to appear in English, again offers us a meticulous translation of a crucial, challenging work. This book is a must-read for any person committed to the Tibetan Buddhist path of reflection and meditation."-- Ngawang Zangpo, author of Sacred Ground and Guru Rinpoché Printed Pages: 574.
