How a single promise brought a man around the world and into the hearts of thousands.

The Promise tells the most unusual, extraordinary journey of Tsem Rinpoche, a radiant Buddhist teacher who literally traversed continents and lifetimes to fulfil a lifelong commitment to the world.

This book is the first in a series of books about Tsem Rinpoche’s life - the insurmountable hurdles he overcame, his stalwart search for happiness and most of all, his unwavering devotion to fulfil a most unusual promise, made when he was only 17 years old.

The Promise, a fascinating pictorial story, features many personal photographs of Tsem Rinpoche’s life, including images that have never been published before. The book crosses four countries, five cities, countless cultures, and is the result of years of travel and research by Tsem Rinpoche’s students, crossing China, Taiwan, India and America.

Relive the exceptional experiences, loves, losses, tragedies and joys of a being who has turned every painful moment of his life into positivity and light, just so others can find the same. It is the inspirational story of a being so strong, forgiving, kind and tenacious that it could only be that of a person who has lived his entire life in fulfilment of a single but amazing Promise.

About Tsem Rinpoche

His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche was a world-renowned Buddhist teacher, the 25th incarnation from a long line of Indian, Nepali and Tibetan Buddhist masters dating back to over 2,500 years ago. He was the founder of the Kechara Buddhist Organisation headquartered in Malaysia, a prolific author of commentaries, discourses and books on Buddhism, and a beloved spiritual guide to many disciples around the world.

When Rinpoche passed into parinirvana on September 4th, 2019, the world lost a towering beacon of goodness and hope. He dedicated his entire life to the practice and proliferation of Buddhism especially through the digital world, and his teachings have touched the hearts and changed the lives of thousands of people around the globe.

Rinpoche's life is an inspiring example of one who lived only to benefit others; one who never gave up the Dharma despite the difficulties that he faced. Skilfully sharing spiritual wisdom with all and never turning his compassion away from anyone in need, Rinpoche's caring, patient, skilful, wise, compassionate, kind and generous qualities were apparent to anyone near or far.
