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.
