Never before this openly addressed... All you ever wamted to know but never dared to ask about Gurus, disciples, groupies, sponsors, Dharma centres, different approaches and philosophies, who's right, who's best, and what it all has to do with ME? Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has seen it all: from raking leaves at his first Guru's Mongolian temple to becoming the teenage personal assistant to H.H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in Los Angeles; from being recognised as an eminent incarnation at world-reknowned Gaden Monastery to eveolving into an electrifying poineer teacher of contemporary Dharma, Rinpoche has witnessed all the bickering, bashing, broken bonds, bruised egos, Bodhisattvas and boogie-men; the whole drama that goes on and on... Touching on a variety of near-taboo subjects, Rinpoche compassionately shows us the keys to finding our own way in the labyrinths of today's spiritual supermarket, and why the holy journey is still worth every thorny step we take.
