Thanks.

But shouldn't your thread have a topic, aside from marketing?

I respect Tsem Tulku as a serious teacher who once gave me very good detailed personal advice.

Why not introduce each aspect of his teachings and simply then post a quote and a link to the related book or video?

Waimengwan,

It would be great if you could post reviews of these works rather than just linking to them.

Leave him be. There is nothing wrong with announcing a Dharma event or book if one thinks the blurb promises a good read.

If the post in this category of 'Book Reviews' is causing hyperventilation - then have a 'Book Announcement' forum or move it to the Lounge.

I will get some reviews about these books and post it up later.

When I checked the previous posts on this subsection some of the people just shared links to books also. :)

Tales My Lama told me - is storytelling by Tsem Rinpoche it has both tales of mahasiddhas and some stories about Rinpoche as he is trying to find his way in the world.Rinpoche has a real knack of telling stories really well he talked about Naropa, Some of the 84 Mahasiddhas, Milarepa, Shambala with his students, interlaced with that is stories about Rinpoche's struggles to practice Buddhism. Very easy reading and enjoyable.

Maybe he uses those stories so much because he doesn't want you to question his dubious actions.
