9780060927844: The Tale of the Incomparable Prince: The Library of Tibet (HarperCollins Library of Tibet)

Tibet's only novel, a parable for all time, combines intrigue, romance, war, and religion in a rousing adventure story set within the context of a traditional Buddhist worldview. The story revolves around a prince and his love for a neighboring princess. They marry, but the prince's spiritual quest parallels the life of Buddha. Author Rgyal lived from 1697 to 1763 and held many important government posts in Tibet, including that of prime minister. Rgyal's novel is an exquisite work of world literature.

Review:

Mdo Mkhar Tshe Ring Dbang Rygal lived in 18th-century Tibet. He was a politician, a trained Buddhist, and, as we've just now discovered, a heckuva writer. The Tale of Incomparable Prince has the earmarks of an epic novel: The grand story of a two men in pursuit of one fantastic woman, it features kings and warriors, romance and lust. The book also reveals the ancient world of Buddhist Tibet that is little known in the West today, described by a writer with a keen knack for storytelling.
