Translated, edited, and annotated by Enrico Dell'Angelo
The Lamp That Enlightens Narrow Minds tells the remarkable story of Khyentse Chökyi Wangchug (1909-1960), a realized Tibetan trulku (reincarnated lama or teacher) and reincarnation of the great nineteenth-century master Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo. Author, Dzogchen Buddhist scholar, and internationally known teacher Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, Chökyi Wangchug's maternal nephew and disciple, and himself a high-ranking tulku, describes in intimate detail the important events of Chökyi Wangchug's life, his spiritual practices, and the challenges he faced at a time of vast change and political upheaval in Tibet. Throughout his life, he maintained his sense of equanimity and dedication to the Buddhist teachings, even while navigating the complexities of Tibetan religious hierarchy and facing the immensely difficult situation in 1950s Tibet.
