Vast as the Heavens, Deep as the Sea


Verses in Praise of Bodhicitta

By Khunu Rinpoche
Translated by Gareth Sparham
Foreword by H.H. the Dalai Lama

Presented in both English and the original Tibetan, this modern classic is a collection of Khunu Rinpoche's inspirational verse. Revered by many, especially His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as the very embodiment of altruism, the late Khunu Rinpoche Tenzin Gyaltsen devoted his life to the development of bodhicitta ~ the aspiration to achieve enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings.

" . . . a classic, in the tradition of Shantideva's great masterpiece, The Way of the Bodhisattva." ~ Matthieu Ricard, author of The Monk and the Philosopher

"To hold in your hands Khunu Rinpoche's own words on bodhicitta is to be given a priceless opportunity-of touching the heart of a master who had made it the guiding light of his entire life." ~ Sogyal Rinpoche

"Whenever I think of [Khunu Rinpoche], I always say to myself, 'This is what St. Francis of Assisi must have been like.'" ~ Sogyal Rinpoche, from The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

"[Vast as the Heavens, Deep as the Sea] is extremely inspiring and very poetic, very sweet and pleasing to read, like drinking nectar or eating cream." ~ Lama Zopa Rinpoche
