“Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche . . . is renowned throughout the Tibetan community, . . . a legendary adept who—like the great sages and hermits of the past—has spent much of his life in retreat, practicing meditation and granting teachings only sparingly to a few committed disciples. It is truly wonderful, therefore, that we now have this precious collection of his teachings and advice capably translated into English, enabling many more people to benefit from his boundless wisdom and compassion.”—Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

“This little book is an inspiration of immense value to all serious practitioners of the Buddhadharma.”—The Mirror Newspaper, published by the International Dzogchen Community of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

“Provides wonderful insight into the diversity of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.”—The Feminist Review

Compassionate Action is a jewel. Chatral Rinpoche’s teachings are clear, compassionate, and uncompromising. Compassionate Action is essential reading for Tibetan Buddhists and indeed for Buddhists of all schools.”—Norm Phelps, author of The Great Compassion: Buddhism and Animal Rights

“Compassionate Action is a ‘must-read’ for anyone seeking to learn from this quintessential wise and holy man. . . . Highly recommended.”—Wisconsin Bookwatch “This book provides a series of inspiring insights into the beliefs of someone who has devoted more than eight decades to the intensive practice of Dharma and who has little time for the many ways in which people fool themselves—while at the same time caring passionately about their development towards an enlightened state.”—Thar Lam journal
