The autobiography of Khyongla Rato is a moving human interest story set in the last few decades of life in Tibet before Communists seized control of the country in 1959. It is the only record in English of daily life in Tibet's great monastic universities. Readers can experience Tibet's customs and ceremonies, as well as the emotions and intellectual challenges of the rigourous training required to pass exams in Buddhist sutra and tantra studies. Joseph Campbell, one of Khyongla Rato's students, wrote the introduction to the book.

About the Author:

Khyongla Rato is a highly trained scholar from Tibet, who has lived in the United States for almost thirty years. He has been commissioned by the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government to write a number of books, including the history of Tibet. Khyongla was selected as one of the scholars to challenge the Dalai Lama during his Geshe examination, or Ph.D. orals in Buddhist studies. The Tibet Center he established in New York City has hosted teachings by many of Tibet's great teachers, including the Dalai Lama.
