Chariot of the Fortunate

Price: $15.96 (20% off full price)
Item Number: BCHAFOR
Author: Je Tukyi Dorje, Surmang Tendzin Rinpoche & Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye
This book includes a brief biography of Mingyur Dorje by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great, extracted from his Lives of the Hundred Treasure-Revealers, and the biography of Mingyur Dorje called Chariot of the Fortunate. The latter was begun by Dzigar Tukyi Dorje, and completed by Surmang Tendzin Rinpoche.

Chariot of the Fortunate is largely based upon oral traditions about the life of its subject. It is therefore free from the rigid organization that characterizes many Tibetan biographies. Reading it often feels like being spoken to by the writers, both because of its colloquial language and because of its informal structure. Nevertheless, it tells us a great deal about Mingyur Dorje, and perhaps something about ourselves.
