One of the world's most popular Tibetan lamas shares accessible advice for working with adversity and living a spiritual life.

Tales for Transforming Adversity is a translation of a bestselling work in Chinese, a popular expression of Buddhism that has sold tens of millions of copies. Each brief chapter takes up a different topic, weaving in stories from ancient classics and modern headlines, drawing on adages from Confucius to Mark Twain, to deliver simple and timeless insights about facing adversity and developing a good heart. The author, Khenpo Sodargye, is a Tibetan Buddhist monk and chief disciple of Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, who founded Larung Gar, a sprawling monastic complex of more than ten thousand practitioners on a green hillside in eastern Tibet that has been energizing a new generation of Tibetans and creating a sensation among Han communities throughout China. Now English-language readers can also benefit from this ageless advice on money, relationships, and mortality with a Buddhist spin.

About the Author:

Khenpo Sodargye was born in Tibet in 1962 in what is today the Sichuan province of China. After spending his early years herding yaks, he entered the Buddhist monastery and went on to become the preeminent scholar of Larung Gar Buddhist Institute in Serthar. He has been especially effective at popularizing Tibetan Buddhism among Chinese communities and regularly speaks at universities in Asia and the West. This is his first trade book in English.
