The Promise tells the most unusual, extraordinary life story of Tsem Rinpoche, a radiant Buddhist teacher who literally traversed continents and lifetimes to fulfil a lifelong commitment to the world.
The Promise, a fascinating pictorial story, features many personal photographs of Tsem Rinpoche’s life, including images that have never been published before. The book crosses four countries, five cities, countless cultures, and is the result of years of travel and research by Tsem Rinpoche’s students, crossing China, Taiwan, India and the United States.
