Abstract:
The biography of Gangkar Rinpoche by Minyag Gonpo, translated and annotated by S. Brinson Aldridge, is the story of a Tibetan lama from Minyak whose openness in teaching was influential in bringing Tibetan Buddhism to the West.

His students introduced the Songs of Milarepa to Western audiences, established Tibetology in China, and continue his legacy of teaching and disseminating Tibetan culture. Gangkar Rinpoche re-established centers of learning in Minyak in the 1930s, with special teachings given at Gangkar monastery on the slopes of Gonga Shan. Included is Gangkar Rinpoche’s pilgrimage guide to this sacred mountain in western Sichuan.
