Abstract:

"Master of masters, visionary, poet, revealer of profound spiritual treasures, Dudjom Rinpoche was a paramount figure in the history of twentieth-century Tibet. He worked closely with the present Dalai Lama to reinvigorate Tibetan culture and spiritual practice following the Chinese invasion of their homeland. Nyingma masters and devotees, both lay and ordained, unanimously appointed him Supreme Head of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism, and he served in this capacity until his death in 1987. He wrote over two dozen volumes of poetry, music, history, and philosophy. In addition, he assembled and published texts which might otherwise have been lost and delivered unprecedented numbers of initiations and teachings to thousands of individuals." "Written by a Nyingma master who served for several years as Dudjom Rinpoche's secretary, this biography celebrates a teacher whose hardships in exile did not diminish his zest for scholarship and practice. "I, the tiger, do not need a rich mansion," he wrote after leaving Tibet. "The tiger's forest thickets are my rich mansion.""--Jacket.
