Based partly on personal interviews, this is the story of the Dalai Lama's prodigious life--of how a lively child from a modest peasant family came to be recognized as the fourteenth reincarnation of the Buddha of Infinite Compassion. The book also portrays a vivid and important civilization based on an exuberant and sophisticated Buddhist tradition.
