About this product
- DescriptionAdeu Rinpoche's story is t about the horrors he endured under the Communist takeover of Tibet--he himself tes that many other people underwent much worse hardships, t to mention all those that died--but rather the way in which he told his tale. While describing what happened to him and many others, how he survived and finally his release from prison he spoke in a straightforward, dignified manner without any resentment, anger or sadness. He never added mental anguish on top of an already untenable experience. He viewed what happened to him as a ripening of his own individual karma, he accepted responsibility for the abuse he suffered; in fact, he repeatedly stated that each person suffered according to their own karma, as he said, I felt that whatever befalls you is a ripening of the specific karma that you created in the past. Adeu Rinpoche took the trauma and suffering as an opportunity t only to accept the vicissitudes of life without bitterness but also to transcend the unjust treatment by t harboring ill-will against the perpetrators, instead developing compassion for them. In the end he turned suffering into happiness, for even while imprisoned he was able to meet many great masters, receive teachings from them and even do some serious practice. It is truly inspiring that people exist in our world with such profound realization and accomplishment--they are examples to us all. This tale together with wonderful teachings presents a compassionate and wise face to the hardship Adeu Rinpoche and so many others endured and triumphed over. It is a banquet of realization, pith instructions and dignity.
