New book about Akong Rinpoche - how to get one - UPDATE

We are pleased to announce the release of the book 'Only the Impossible is Worth Doing - Recollections of the Supreme Life and Activity of Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche" which has been written by students of Rinpoche and  has a Foreword by HH 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

This book was conceived following a conference held in May 2014 at Wolfson College, University of Oxford, to commemorate Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche’s life and activities. The conference was presided over by the Great Master of Buddhist study and practice, Khenpo Tsultrim Lodro Rinpoche from the renowned Larung Gar Buddhist Institute in Kham, Tibet.

The speakers were individuals responsible for assisting Rinpoche’s main activities around the world, and the talks were filled with devotion, profound memories and deep emotion.
