18) Siddhas of Ga: Remembered by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche
- description: A Bouquet of Utpalas: Brief accounts of the lives of siddhas of Ga whom my guru actually met or whose stories he heard from trustworthy sources, set forth here as medicine to restore faith
Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche strongly encouraged Lama Karma Drodhul to request Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche to tell the stories of accomplished tantric practitioners (siddhas) from Kham, Eastern Tibet.
Most of the holy beings whose lives are recounted here began as ordinary people like us, and were not recognized emanations of buddhas or bodhisattvas. This book clearly demonstrates that we can, through diligence, achieve the same result.
Beautifully recorded by Lama Karma Drodhul, these are stories of siddhas that Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche actually knew. Traleg Kyabgn Rinpoche once remarked that there is nothing like these accounts of Siddhas of Ga.
