Product Details


Enlightened Vagabond enshrines fascinating life stories of the great Patrul, a celebrated scholar and adept roaring in the silent caves of Tibet’s high mountains with the sounds of definitive wisdom and unconditional love that can now reverberate in the hearts of all readers, lay and adept, thanks to this precious book.”
—Tulku Thondup Rinpoche, author of Masters of Meditation and Miracles
“Patrul Rinpoche is universally revered by all Tibetan lamas, and his life is a rich source of teaching on what constitutes true Dharma practice. The anecdotes of his life show, with sharp humor, the authentic way, often exposing the traps and deceptions of human and institutional folly. Matthieu Ricard has a unique and intimate connection with the masters of this lineage. This book will be a classic and is a must-read for all who wish to explore the heart essence of Tibetan Buddhism.”
—Ringu Tulku, author of Confusion Arises as Wisdom
“Patrul Rinpoche is one of the greatest Tibetan masters of the past few hundred years. He was a deeply learned scholar and also a humble yogi who renounced fame and power to devote his life to practice and guiding others along the path. The experiential lineage that he taught continues to this day. His teachings have influenced countless meditators, including scholars and yogis from all four of Tibet’s main Buddhist lineages. This wonderful book paints an inspiring portrait of this great master. It will be of great benefit to all those interested in the path of awakening.”
—Mingyur Rinpoche, author of The Joy of Living
