This epic biography has long been recognised by Tibetans as one of the master works of their religious heritage, documenting the struggle of Shabkar Author(s) : Ricard, Matthieu

Tsodruk Rangdrol to master the highest and most esoteric practices of the Tibetan tradition of the Great Perfection, or Dzogchen.

Shabkar devoted himself to many years of meditation in solitary retreat after his inspired youth and early training in the province of Amdo under the guidance of several extraordinary masters. This work vividly reflects the values and visionary imagery of Tibetan Buddhism, with extensive notes and appendices full of valuable information on Tibetan Buddhist practice.

"Regarded by many as the greatest yogi after Milarepa to gain enlightenment in one lifetime, he also lived the life of a wandering mendicant teaching by means of spiritual songs. Shabkar is particularly celebrated for the absolute purity of his approach to his lama and his personal practice, which freed him from the snare of sectarianism. He is also affectionately remembered for the kindness of his gently teasing humour." ~ The Dalai Lama.
