Prime Minister Without a Country: An Interview with Ven. Samdhong Rinpoche
Prime Minister Without a Country: An Interview with Ven. Samdhong Rinpoche
Description
b>Back Of The Book

Prime Minister Without a Country is a precise and candid interview with the Dalai Lama's Prime Minister, Ven. Samdhong Rinpoche. It deals with his approach to his tenure as the first elected Tibetan Prime Minister, albeit for the refugee. Tibetan Government-in-Exile, at the Salai Lama's headquarters in Dharmashala, India. A follower of Mahatma Gandhi and the Principles of non-violence (ahimsa), he is very open about his views on how future relations with China should be developed. He also gives his outspoken views on the future of a Tibetan nation and how an ideal society should be organized. This is followed by the Rinpoche's article on the principles of Buddhist Governance based on the teachings and examples of the historical Buddha relation to the kings in India, over two and a half millennia ago. Like the other teachings of the Buddha, the instructions on Statecraft are just as valid today in the 21st Century.

Daniel Bhaber an American expatriate writer and teacher based in Katmandu, Nepal has spent many years living in the Indian subcontinent and often writes about Tibetan and Buddhist issues.
