Praise

The Epic of Gesar of Ling is the life force of a distinct culture, containing so much that defines and distinguishes Tibetans. I hope this story brings delight to all who encounter it.”—Dzigar Kongtrul, author of Peaceful Heart

“Not just for scholars and established aficionados of the Gesar epic, this translation is exciting and eminently accessible. I was loath to stop reading, and you will be too.”—Natasha Mikles, author of The Power of Genres and the Project of Secularization: Publishing the Gesar Epic in Contemporary China

“The Gesar epic is a cultural treasure of ancient Tibet and an important contribution to our human civilization. I believe these stories bring heart and humanity into the modern world. I am delighted to see it in the English language.”—Dza Kilung, author of The Relaxed Mind

“On the ultimate level, Gesar is none other than the great master Padmasambhava—intentionally manifesting as the magical display of a warrior being. Among the many editions of this great hero’s stories of enlightened activities comes this English translation of The Taming of the Demons. I rejoice from the bottom of my heart that this is now made available.”—Chakung Jigme Wangdrak, founder of The Abhaya Fellowship
