From the Heart of Tibet: The Biography of Drikung Chetsang Rinpoche, the Holder of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage
Written by Elmar R. Gruber
This is the story of a young boy, born in Tibet to inherit the role of Buddhist lineage holder, whose life was interrupted by the Chinese army invasion and the ensuing Cultural Revolution. Two decades later, he walked out of Tibet and started on his journey of fully taking on leadership of the Drikung Kagyu lineage. Since then the teachings of this lineage have flourished and are practiced all around the world—after nearly being lost.
