A scholar and writer, his many books include My Land and My People; Kindness, Clarity and Insight; A Flash of Lightning in the Dark of Night; Ocean of Wisdom; and The World of Tibetan Buddhism: An Overview of its Philosophy and Practice. His wisdom and compassion have served as an inspiration for people all over the world.
