VAST AS THE HEAVENS, DEEP AS THE SEA

Verses in Praise of Bodhicitta

Khunu Rinpoche Gareth Sparham

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.
