A VISUALLY STUNNING BOOK.Review by STEVE LEE
This is indeed a beautiful book with many of its glossy pictures inside the book that showcases different periods of Rinpoche's life. It is amazing they managed to dig up so many pictures across a broad section of Rinpoche's life.

The story told is heartwarming as rinpoche had a hard life. He did not have it easy and that made him into the spiritual teacher that he eventually became. There's many remarkable aspects to Rinpoche's life. I think the most remarkable aspect of Rinpoche's life is the fact that he came from america and went to India to become a monk. It is truly a remarkable story and one that's an inspiration.
