Freedom in Bondage
The Life and Teachings of Adeu Rinpoche
Translated by Erik Pema Kunsang

Freedom in Bondage <br>The Life and Teachings of Adeu Rinpoche <br>Translated by Erik Pema Kunsang

Adeu Rinpoche’s life was extraordinary from the beginning. He was recognized by an incarnation of the previous Adeu Rinpoche and enthroned at the age of seven as the Eighth Adeu Rinpoche. As a child and teenager he mastered writing, calligraphy, poetry, astrology, mandala painting, prayer, and meditation. Then, in 1958 at the age of twenty-seven, his monastery was attacked and all sacred texts and statues were completely destroyed by the Chinese as part of the Cultural Revolution. Sentenced to fifteen years in prison for his religious beliefs, the author was sent to a remote labor camp, where he watched many of his friends die under the harsh conditions. But imprisonment had an unexpected blessing: he met many accomplished masters, including the late Khenpo Munsel, and learned many practices from them.

Freedom in Bondage
offers a portrait of the life and philosophy of one of the twentieth century’s most respected meditation masters—his early training in spiritual practices, his flight and capture, interrogation and sentencing, and the years in prison. His voice is calm and nonjudgmental, uplifting the reader with his compassion for his captors. The title captures the author’s inner liberation in a dire situation.
