The Life of Shabkar

£14.99

Product description

The Life of Shabkar has long been recognised by Tibetans as one of the master works of their religious heritage. Following his inspired youth and early training in his native province of Amdo under the guidance of several extraordinary Buddhist masters, Shabkar Tsodruk Rangdrol devoted himself to many years of meditation in solitary retreat. With determination and courage, he mastered the highest and most esoteric practices of the Tibetan tradition of the Great Perfection. He then wandered far and wide over the Himalayan region expressing his realisation. His autobiography vividly reflects the values and visionary imagery of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the social and cultural life of early nineteenth century Tibet.

Condition: Large softback. Light wear to the edges and corners of the cover. Inscribed inside front cover. Otherwise pages are clean and undamaged. The binding is tight. The spine is not creased.
