The popular female Tibetan teacher Khandro Rinpoche explains how we can cultivate wisdom and compassion to make the most of our lives. The head of a nunnery in India, Khandro Rinpoche is the daughter of His Holiness Mindrolling Trichen and is renowned in both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages. Her perspective as a woman and someone who has had the benefits of both a religious upbringing and a modern education brings a unique feminine understanding to the wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
Using the traditional framework of the Four Reminders - the preciousness of human rebirth, the truth of impermanence, the reality of suffering, and the inescapability of karma - she explains why and how we could all better use this short life to make the world a better place. She includes contemplative exercises that encourage us to appreciate the tremendous potential of the human body and mind.
"This Precious Life, the authentic teachings on the four mind trainings, is inspiringly intimate, extraordinarily clear, and profoundly meaningful." Tulku Thondup.
"Khandro Rinpoche's teachings on the four elemental realities of our lives offer an inspired and vivid opportunity to connect with the profound simplicity of the Buddha's wisdom." Sakyong Mipham.
