Product Details


“Buddhist readers will be lifted by the unquestioned optimism for human achievement and potential in the future in Larung Gar teachings.”—Publishers Weekly

“I am deeply honoured and grateful for the opportunity to remark on the writings of the eminent teachers of Larung Gar, especially the heart sons of the great and formidable Kyabje Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche. My observations of both Khenpo Tsultrim Lodro and Khenpo Sodargye over the years have turned gradually to admiration and then to real veneration. Their ‘walk the talk’ approach to the dharma they teach gives great hope to all followers of the Buddhadharma. And so, I want to express my joy that having their words now in printed form will provide at least a glimpse of the unfathomable and infinite activity of these great teachers from Larung Gar.”—Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, author of The Guru Drinks Bourbon?

Voices from Larung Gar is a groundbreaking volume that brings much-needed focus to one of the most important Buddhist institutions in the world. It provides depth and detail about this monastic academy and contemporary Buddhism in Tibet more generally. This volume also adds nuance to the larger question of how Buddhists interlace tradition and innovation in areas like gender equality, animal welfare, philosophy, and ethics.”—David McMahan, author of The Making of Buddhist Modernism and editor of Meditation, Buddhism, and Science

“This anthology gives voice to the amazing leaders of the most dynamic Tibetan Buddhist institution of the last century. It illustrates vividly the remarkable ways in which Larung Gar monks and nuns are engaging modern social issues while remaining deeply grounded in their beloved Buddhist traditions.”—David Germano, Executive Director of the Contemplative Sciences Center at the University of Virginia

“Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche was a remarkable master, the Buddha of Tibet in our time. Some of his disciples are among the most highly revered spiritual leaders in Asia. This is a blessed book that can be used for reading as well as a sacred object on one’s altar.”—Anam Thubten, founder and spiritual advisor to Dharmata Foundation and author of Choosing Compassion
