The Life and Times of Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (Author)

The foremost torchbearer of the ecumenical Rime movement, Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro (1893-1959) dedicated his life to the study, practice, and propagation of all the schools and lineages that are collectively known as Tibetan Buddhism. The staggeringly long list of teachings he received and transmitted in turn testifies to the depth of his appreciation of all aspects of the Dharma, and the roster of his eminent students reveals how his extraordinary influence transcended sectarian boundaries.

The first half of this volume presents informal stories by many of Chokyi Lodro's teachers, students, friends, and relatives, collected by Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche and translated here into English for the first time. Intimate, funny, and utterly down-to-earth, these stories—supplemented by over sixty photographs—paint a tender picture of the man behind the great master, introducing readers to the characters and events in his life, and especially the challenges he faced living under the Chinese occupation of Tibet.

The second half comprises an English translation of the spiritual biography, or namtar, by Dilgo Khyentse, one of Chokyi Lodro's closest and most brilliant students. In the process of recounting the life and liberation of his beloved guru, Dilgo Khyentse reveals how he saw Chokyi Lodro as the Buddha in the flesh and provides, essentially, a blueprint of the entire path to enlightenment.

About the author

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, whose remarkable life came to an end in September, 1991, was one of the foremost poets, scholars, philosophers and meditation masters of the Mahayana, Mahamudra and Great Perfection traditions of Vajrayana Buddhism. He was highly respected by thousands of students in Tibet and throughout the world. The text he presents here is the Seven Point Mind training, brought to Tibet by teh Indian master Atisha. This teahing is the very core of the entire practice of Tibetan Buddhism. It condenses the compassionate path to Buddhahood into practical instructions which make use of all the circumstances of everyday life. Khyentse Rinpoche gave this commentary in the Dordogne, France, during his last visit to the West. He speaks frankly from his heaert, drawing on his own life long experience. The fact that Rinpoche has departed from this world adds much poignancy to his words, which many of his students regard as his parting gift.
