By tradition, a high lama’s story is told through three types of biography - an autobiography, a general biography and a secret biography. All are important but the autobiography, written in the lama's own words, has the most power to touch the hearts and minds of people from all walks of life.

My Journey in This Life is the autobiography of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, co-written by The New York Times #1 best-selling author and award-winning journalist Ms Elizabeth Kaye.

Rinpoche was a world-renowned Buddhist teacher, a prolific author of commentaries, discourses and books on Buddhism, an outspoken champion of religious freedom, and a beloved spiritual guide to many disciples around the world.

The book is a moving account of this great master's spiritual journey - including moments of sheer joy, utter desolation, and details of his life which have never been made public before. At times intense and at other times playful, it is a fascinating combination of the spirituality and worldliness that was unmistakably unique to Rinpoche.

A must read for anyone seeking spiritual inspiration, fresh perspective, or an insight into the inner spiritual life of a high lama who became one of the most influential religious figures in contemporary Tibetan Buddhism.

An amazing story that deeply touches my heartReview by Marcus Prade
This book shows the very inspiring life story of an amazing person that went through a very hard childhood but due to applying Dharma, Buddhas teachings, in his life, became an outstanding example of not only a Buddhist monk, but also a truly pure and honest practitioner. I deeply recommend this book to everyone looking for the meaning and transformative power of Buddhism. It’s personal, it’s deeply inspiring and it brought me close to tears more then once.

Lovely biographyReview by Joan C.
Beautifully written and very easy to read. It's a page turner! I listen to Tsem Rinpoche's dharma talks on Youtube every day, and this book is a wonderful companion to learning more about him.

The quality of the printing itself is very good. The pages are thick, and the book construction is solid. It's a testament to Rinpoche's insistence that all dharma work be perfectly produced. (Reviewed on 1/4/2022)

Very inspiring readReview by Roel
The book reads as if Rinpoche is speaking directly to you, like a good story-telling except that it is real. It's an easy read but no less profound. I particularly like the brief dharma teaching element at the end. It really sums up the essence of buddhist practice in my opinion. (Reviewed on 6/10/2021)
