Publisher:Kechara Media and Publications
Size:147 x 206 mm
This autobiography is a sincere, no-holds barred and very personal portrait of how a spoiled young man makes his own spiritual journey and finds life-changing results from the Dharma. The book is enhanced with many memorable coloured photographs endearing David s journey. This book is the first in Kechara Media & Publications biography series, which captures each young writer s own experiences as they encounter the teachings of H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and describes how they try to realise their full potential as compassionate and caring human beings. In sharing David s spirit and passion with all readers, the Publisher has maintained his unique voice, choosing not to edit his writing as extensively as with works in its other series. We hope that David s writing and experiences will inspire you to start on your own spiritual journey.
