A Handful of Flowers (A brief Biography of Buton Rinchen Drub)
A Handful of Flowers (A brief Biography of Buton Rinchen Drub)
Description
Foreword

Tibet's rich and ancient culture has owed a great debt to significant individuals down the centuries. There is now a growing body of literature in translation about these enlightened masters and historical figures. This English translation of the condensed biography of Buton Rinpoche is a welcome addition.

Buton Rinpoche (1290-1364) became one of Tibet's most renowned scholars and translators. His life and work are notable for the effort he made to honour all the orders and systems of tenets of Tibetan Buddhism.

This account of Buton Rinpoche's life by Dratshadpa Rinchen Namgyal recounts many of his great compassionate activities. It is a source of wisdom and inspiration for Buddhist practitioners even today.

I congratulate the translator, Hans van den Bogaert, and everyone who has contributed to making the biography of this exemplary master available to interested persons who do not read Tibetan.

Publisher's Note

A Handful of Flowers is a condensed biography of the 14th-century Buddhist scholar and master, Boton Rinchen Drub. In translation it offers a valuable addition to the body of works, rendered into English, of outstanding historical figures in the Buddhist world.

Born in the year 1290, Boton Rinpoche showed extraordinary qualities from a young age, and grew up to become one of Tibet's greatest and most prolific scholars and translators. Acting always out of boundless compassion, and with inestimable wisdom, he worked tirelessly for the liberation of all sentient beings. He became known as the Lord of Zhalu-amongst other eminent titles-Zhalu being the location of his principal monastery and retreat centre.

This biography was composed as a hymn of praise to his master by the monk-disciple Dratshadpa Rinchen Namgyal. It has been ably translated into English by Hans van den Bogaert, who is to be commended for his devotion and the thoroughness of his endeavors. May the merit gained by publishing this inspirational life-story be shared among all sentient beings, and bring them benefit.
