C. R. Lama, also known as Chimed Rigdzin Rinpoche and as Zilnon Lingpa (1922-2002), was an important lama in the Khordong and Changter lineages of the Nyingmapa School of Tibetan Buddhism. A scholar and also a yogi, he combined these two streams in his work as Reader in Indo-Tibetan Studies at Visva Bharati University at Santiniketan, West Bengal, India. He was a family man who was actively engaged in the world around him. This book gathers together Rinpoche's writings on a wide range of topics including Nyingma Buddhist Philosophy, Tibetan cultural practices, his life in Khordong Monastery in Tibet and his advice for Dharma practitioners. Tulku Thondup writes, "James Low studied under the Ven. Chimed Rigdzin Rinpoche for years with incredible dedication in austere conditions to accumulate vast knowledge of Rinpoche's teachings. This volume is filled with those precious teachings, most of which have remained unpublished until now."
