A Gentle Rain of Compassion by David Shlim
Finding a fascinating and gratifying medical practice in Kathmandu saved his medical career, but befriending a reincarnate Tibetan lama transformed his life.
This compellingly written memoir is a grand adventure tale of travel in Nepal and Tibet, tense and highly emotional medical encounters, new romances, and ground-breaking medical research. But all these eventually take a back seat to what the author learns about Tibetan Buddhism and the ability to train in compassion. The author reveals the details of his personal tutoring in Buddhism and his gradual exposure to mysteries and hard-to-explain events that he personally witnesses. For all the readers who dream about what it might be like to travel to the Himalayas and achieve a genuine spiritual connection, this book is the story of how that dream can come true.
A Gentle Rain of Compassion is available for purchase at Jackson Hole Book Trader, Wilson Book Gallery, and bookshop.org.
Author will present his book at the Presbyterian Church, starting at 7pm on Thursday, October 6, 2022. Book signing to follow. This is a free event, no ticket required.
