Published in July 2017 by Shambhala Publications, “Enlightened Vagabond: The Life and Teachings of Patrul Rinpoche” is a collection of stories gathered and translated by the French Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard over more than thirty years.
From the Shambhala Publications website:
The life and teachings of the wandering yogi Patrul Rinpoche—a highly revered Buddhist master and scholar of nineteenth-century Tibet—come alive in true stories gathered and translated by the French Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard over more than thirty years, based on the oral accounts of great contemporary teachers as well as written sources. Patrul’s life story reveals the nature of a highly realized being as he transmits the Dharma in everything he does, teaching both simple nomads and great lamas in ways that are often unconventional and even humorous, but always with uncompromising authenticity.
