Chatral Rinpoche, the quintessential "hidden yogi," has been a legend in the Himalayan region for the past seventy years. Although he has never traveled to the West, his amazing story and teachings have gradually been infiltrating the Western Buddhist consciousness since Father Thomas Merton first met him in 1968 and famously remarked that he was "the greatest man I ever met." This is the first English-language book of this living legend; it includes his biography and autobiography, six of his essays, five prayers he composed, an exclusive interview, and sixteen pages of photos from throughout his life.
"Compassionate Action is a jewel. Chatral Rinpoche's teachings are clear, compassionate, and uncompromising. Compassionate Action is essential reading for Tibetan Buddhists and indeed for Buddhists of all schools." —Norm Phelps, author of The Great Compassion: Buddhism and Animal Rights
