In colorful, bustling Boudhanath—Buddhism's great pilgrimage site in
Nepal—a small group of students gathered to speak with Kyabje Thinley
Norbu Rinpoche in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. This is the record of
their lively dialogue, which the author described as “using the
traditional method of question and answer to connect ordinary experience
with sublime Dharma in a flexible way.” The contents cover a wide range
of inquiry: How should Westerners understand the Tibetan Buddhist
teachings on karma and rebirth, monastic discipline, the importance of
keeping vows, and devotion to the Guru? What is the Buddhist stand on
male supremacy? Must Vajrayana practitioners have a consort? What is the
antidote to self-hatred? How do we put into practice the “same taste”
of suffering and pleasure? First published privately in an exclusive
limited edition in 1977, Echoes
is part of the cherished legacy of one of the greatest realized Nyingma masters of our age.
