Compassionate Action, the Life Story of Chatral Rinpoche
Chatral Rinpoche is known as one of the most compassionate Bodhisattvas and greatest masters in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. In 1947 he was the head spritual master for Regent Reting, who was at the time the political ruler of Tibet. He is the vajra regent, or principal lineage holder of the three major lineages of the Nyingma School: Longchen Nyingthig, Dudjom Tersar, and Sera Khandro. He rescues millions of endangered animals each year and has been a strict vegetarian for over forty-five years. Now in his 90s, he is as active as ever, helping humans and animals alike with an unfathomably deep compassion. This is the first book in English dedicated to this living legend, and includes a biography, an autobiography, three of his essays, three prayers he composed and an exlusive interview.
