Good news - the life story of a great master


Togden Shakya Shri - The Life and Liberation of a Tibetan Yogin

This Namthar, or traditional Tibetan biography, welcomes the reader to the extraordinary dimension of a realized yogin. Its pages recount the inspiring milestones in the life of the revered Togden of Drugu (1853-1919), a portrayal which is also precious as the mirroring of a vanished world. The chronicle glows with inspiring facts and miraculous happenings, as well as insights provided by numerous letters between the Togden and some of the greatest masters of that era.

I just looked up this book on Amazon.com and they list the price (used) as $98.80. Is this correct?

Anyone will try anything for a profit I guess. Go to Snow Lion publishers - it is there for $30 and the same with Shung Shung USA or Europe (also $30 new).

Thanks Cat Slink - I was just doing that (as you suggest) and came back here to post the price of $30 and saw your message. I didn't know an individual owner could set any price on Amazon but that seems to be the case here. Thanks again. Ever since I read about Shakya Shri in Blazing Splendor he has been of interest to me.
