Born in Tibet

Front Cover
Chogyam Trongpa was identified at the age of thirteen months as an important tulka or reincarnation of an enlightened teacher. Born in Tibet offers a rare glimpse into the life of a Tibetan tulku -- his education and early life in a Tibetan monastery, his duties as the abbot and spiritual head of a great monastery, and his intimate and moving relationships with his teachers. The memoir concludes with Trungpa's daring escape from Tibet to India. In an epilogue he describes his emigration to the West, where he encountered many people who were eager to learn the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
