Product Details


 “Gruber skillfully narrates this story of survival and triumph over tragedy without embellishment or sensationalism.”—Buddhadharma

“Chetsang Rinpoche is one of the highest incarnate lamas, the head of a tradition. But he also experienced the life of an ordinary American. This is unlike any other biography—one sees how a neighborhood boy can become a great spiritual master.”—Gelek Rimpoche, author of Good Life, Good Death

“This is a fascinating, terrifying, moving, and exalting account of a truly great being’s success in rising above adversity and making an outstanding contribution to a part of humanity under extreme pressure. I warmly recommend it to anyone who might like to discover a magnificent chest of treasures.”—Professor Robert Thurman, author, with the Dalai Lama, of Infinite Life

“This life story of an extraordinary Buddhist spiritual teacher and intellectual is thoroughly fascinating. This is a must-read for Buddhist scholars and practitioners.”—E. Gene Smith, co-founder of the Tibetan Buddhist Center
