José Cabezón on Mipham Rinpoche's The Just King

Listen to Professor José Cabezón discuss Mipham Rinpoche’s classic work on leadership and ethics.  On the surface, this is a letter to the king of Dergé on governance. However, as Mipham Rinpoche makes explicit, it is for everyone and will “provide beneficial nourishment for beings in this degenerate age.” It has been taught and studied widely: even today, many thousands study it every year—for example, at Larung Gar, the vast Buddhist center of study and practice in remote eastern Tibet.

More than anything, this is a book that is a roadmap on how to live a meaningful, fulfilling, compassionate life without regrets.
