At long last, I have a copy of Cyrus Stearn's essay on and translation of Tangtong Gyalpo's biography, King of the Empty Plain, The Tibetan Iron Bridge Builder Tangtong Gyalpo. Eagerly pouring through it as time permits ...... :twothumbsup:

Great book, I have been dipping into for months - so many adventures he had! A wonderful bodhisattva!
