Revered by many—especially His Holiness the Dalai Lama—as the very embodiment of altruism, the late Khunu Rinpoche Tenzin Gyaltsen devoted his life to the development of bodhicitta—the aspiration to achieve enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings. Presented in both English and the original Tibetan, this modern classic is a collection of Khunu Rinpoche’s inspirational verse.
Vast as the Heavens, Deep as the Sea
“Khunu Rinpoche was a bodhisattva and a saint. His single-minded devotion to the practice of bodhicitta made him a true successor to Shantideva and Patrul Rinpoche, while the simplicity and compassion of his lifestyle set him among the greatest saints of any time, for he is one who had really put off everything that is of this world.”—Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
