It's always inspiring for Tibetan Buddhists to read the stories of these magnificient men and women. This is the second one I set my sights on this summer. I was surprised that it was an autobiography at least halfway.
But then it was his Excellency reporting many many years of giving and receiving empowerments, reading transmi Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche is one of very few exceptionally learned teachers escaping from Tibet as the Chinese closed in and coming to the West as well as India to teach. But then it was his Excellency reporting many many years of giving and receiving empowerments, reading transmissions, and becoming not only an outstanding poet but Terton. I can't deny I was tempted many times to give up this litergy with very little of what experiences he was having in his life and what he felt about them.
However I thought that if he did them I could at least read them. A strange blessing came upon me as I finished the second half of the book which was more personal from different people in his life who had had close relationships with him and the discovery of his incarnation. At the end of all the above I felt a connection to H.
Dec 16, Anastasia rated it really liked it Shelves: buddhism-quality-reads. You have to get to the second part of the book where relatives and friends tell such amazing stories, it highlights all the more how humble Dilgo Kyentse was for not mentioning most of them. The movie of the same name is also very inspiring. Feb 21, Micah rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this book. Some of the stories just left me in awe and were deeply inspiring. Jul 12, Mark Gelula rated it it was amazing.
This is a wonderful book. I love Khyentse Rinpoche and this book has helped me to learn so much more about him. Jul 28, Phuoc Truong rated it really liked it Shelves: Jan 16, Aljosa rated it it was amazing Shelves: buddhism , biography , religion , vajrayana.
Great and inspiring book, but not for people new to Tibetan Buddhism. Aug 06, Jared Della Rocca rated it did not like it Shelves: , boring , history , non-fiction , biography , philosophy , religion , slow , student-recommendations. But my reviews are how I felt about a book and what it was like, for me, to read it. With that stated, I was totally turned off by Brilliant Moon. The narrative was so filled with names of teachers, living and deceased and references to Buddhist writings, prayers, and rituals that I found it mostly incomprehensible.
Khyentse wrote, it seemed to me, for those who were already familiar with Buddhism and thus the references would either be totally understood, or at least enough so to place it in context.
But each and every one would trip me up, knocking me out of my concentration. He was the foremost disciple of Jamyang Khyentse, and he became the root guru to Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, as it was he who introduced Khyentse Chokyi Lodro to the nature of the mind. I wish I could give a better review, but as a total neophyte, the book was completely lost on me. Sep 22, Marcia rated it it was amazing. One of the best written Biographies of Tibetan Spiritual masters I had encounter so far.
I went through entire book in one day and could not stop. Greatly written, well edited and easy to read. Aug 08, Padri Veum rated it it was ok. As a biography, it's a dry read. It is very much a list of empowerments and teachings HH received. Mar 11, sherabwangmo rated it really liked it. Enjoyed second part a lot.. Feb 19, Duncan rated it it was amazing.
