Publisher's Summary

Colorful stories about and profound teachings of Patrul Rinpoche, one of the most impactful teachers and thinkers in the Tibetan tradition from the 19th century.

The life and teachings of the wandering yogi Patrul Rinpoche - a highly revered Buddhist master and scholar of 19th-century Tibet - come alive in true stories gathered and translated by the French Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard over more than 30 years, based on the oral accounts of great contemporary teachers as well as written sources. Patrul's life story reveals the nature of a highly realized being as he transmits the Dharma in everything he does, teaching both simple nomads and great lamas in ways that are often unconventional and even humorous, but always with uncompromising authenticity.

Understanding the linage

I'm so glad to see some of these amazing teachings translated into audiobooks. With all of the names and lineage, many times It can become a big word soup. Hearing the pronunciations and having the luxury of being able to drive and listen to teachings at the same time is simply amazing. Learning about the teachers that brought these teachings to us is the first step in understanding how to tame our mind. What a wonderful book and a wonderful teacher! Thank you!

A True Bodhisattva

Wonderful teachings by a great enlightened being. He is so humble and full of compassion. He indicated a good heart and kindness are key essential qualities for beings to live by. He was committed and dedicated in his spiritual practice, never wanted to accept any offerings given to him. He was a true renunciant with the heart of a Bodhisattva. Great book for spiritual seekers.

Memories of precious moments of my own perfect teacher

A wonderful book taking the listener into the heart of BuddhaDharma and the very secret rare world of the Dzogchen Lineage. Several times my eyes filled with tears as this book poignantly reminded me and took me bank to precious moments of pure kindness to my own precious masters and teachers: Khenpo Sonam Tobgyal Rinpoche of Riwoche Temple, Kyabje Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche, of the Longchen Nyingthig Lineage ,Pema Tsangzin Khandro ( Ven Dhyani Ywahoo) and the illustrious Kyabgon Phakchok Rinpoche of the Chöeling Tersar Lineage.

With deep bows of gratitude and appreciation,

Tsunma Jamyang Donma
