GURU RINPOCHE: His Life and Times
Author: Ngawang Zangpo
To Tibetan Buddhists, Guru Rinpoche is a Buddha. This book recounts Guru Rinpoches historic visit to Tibet and explains his continuing significance to Buddhists. In doing so, it illustrates how a country whose powerful armies overran the capital of China and installed a puppet emperor came to abandon its aggressive military campaigns: this transformation was due to Guru RinpochÃ©, who tamed and converted Tibet to Buddhism and thereby changed the course of Asian history.
