Alexandra David-Neel led one of the most fascinating lives of this century. When she died at the age of 101 she had written over thirty books on Buddhism and on her adventures in Asia. The first woman to interview the thirteenth Dalai Lama, she spent much time in Tibet while it was still closed to foreigners, and learned from personal experience the occult practices and doctrines that characterize Tibetan Buddhism. In addition to "Immortality and Reincarnation" she is the author of "Magic and Mystery in Tibet", "My Journey to Lhasa", and "Secret Oral Teachings in Tibetan Buddhist Sects".Language Notes:
