“The priceless treasures of Tibetan Buddhism are still being kept alive by the lineages of masters who offer them as blessings to the world. Tsoknyi Rinpoche embodies one of the most remarkable of these lineages. He is a profound and skillful teacher who has brought enormous benefit to those of us who have studied with him in the West. He is also the visionary leader of huge practice communities of nuns and monks in Tibet and Nepal.”

“Tsoknyi Rinpoche has brought the ancient Dzogchen teachings to the West for more than a dozen years now. He has made them accessible to us in a way that few teachers are able to through his rare combination of depth, warmth and humor. Rinpoche’s teachings have opened new Dharma doors for thousands of students in the West, allowing us to touch directly the intrinsic freedom of our own nature.”
