Freedom in Bondage
 

Adeu Rinpoche

"Being imprisoned you are not physically free; also your voice is not free, but your state of mind cannot be imprisoned by others, only by yourself. The prison guards had no idea what I was thinking or imagining, so I was free to remember the Three Jewels, and I thought of them as often as I wanted. I was also free to remember my own root guru and do any other practices that I could remember as much as I could. There was nothing the guards could do to control that."
—Adeu Rinpoche

More than a prison memoir, Freedom in Bondage is infused with Adeu Rinpoche’s equanimity and wisdom and demonstrates the remarkable way in which he imparted Buddhist teachings. His life story and profound observations present a compassionate face to the hardship he and so many others endured and triumphed over, inspiring a book that is rich in spiritual realization, pith instructions, and human dignity.

“Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche had expressly ordered Adeu Rinpoche to take responsibility for the Drukpa Kagyü lineage, and Adeu Rinpoche transmitted everything at least three times; and now in Kham, Nepal, and India, the entire Drukpa Kagyü lineage passes through him. He was truly the main lineage holder of the Drukpa Kagyü of our time.”
—Tsoknyi Rinpoche
