About the Book
(Un)expected is a campaign to help create an awareness of poverty not just in Malaysia but all around the world. A call to action, purchasing this book helps save someone’s life. Someone who has never felt warmth, love in their hearts or the contentment that comes from a full stomach.
This book is full of compassion and wisdom, presented in Rinpoche’s inimitable contemporary style, a unique blend of serious contemplation, with generous dashes of wit and humour, but always profound. The selection of beautiful photographs ranges from the quirky to the perfect portrait. Every turn of the page is an unexpected artwork in itself.
Inspired by: Tsem Rinpoche
Beloved for his unconventional, contemporary approach to Dharma, Tsem Rinpoche brings more than 2,500 years of Buddhist wisdom and teachings to the modern spiritual seeker by connecting ancient worlds with new people, cultures, attitudes and lifestyles.
Rinpoche shares largely progressive teaching methods, which use elements as diverse as Madonna’s music, sacred sutras, feeding the homeless and caring for animals to convey authentic Buddhist teachings.
