Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale (Revised Edition)


The first book of its kind, Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale provides an insider’s guide to the precarious, often tricky Guru-disciple relationship. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche explains with great clarity the meaning of spiritual practice in the context of our contemporary lives and how we can apply it in our everyday lives.

Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale also dares to reveal and debunk the many myths that surround spiritual practice, Gurus, Dharma centres and all the political games that are played behind closed temple doors. Tsem Rinpoche reveals the ups, downs, benefits and troubles of Dharma centres all around the world and shows us how, after all, it is one of the most liberating places we’ll ever know. This 2009 Revised Edition also contains additional new material from Rinpoche’s other teachings.

Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale has received international acclaim from renowned personalities such as Martin Barrow, France Berveiller Choa, Francois de Witt, Dr Stuart Koe, Vikram Lall, Kai-Yin Lo and Nora Sun.
