Book Description

This is the story of the early life and escape from the Chinese of a young tulku of Tibet, an incarnate lama of high rank. The book, first published in 1966, shows the quality of human life as lived in Tibet at all levels. The account of his religious education is detailed and of equal value is his description of the meditational centres and seminaries and of his tutors and spiritual teachers.
