9781889797168: In the Presence of My Enemies: Memoirs of Tibetan Nobleman Tsipon Shuguba (Men's Spirituality Series)

Simply and without bitterness, Shuguba tells his story: he speaks of the Chinese invasion and Tibetan military resistance against overwhelming odds; the bombings, executions, and massacres; the deaths of his wife and daughter; and his own trial and nineteen-year imprisonment. Shuguba, who was the last surviving high official from the 14th Dalai Lama's original government, reveals information that was concealed from the outside world for over three decades. His recollections of his earlier life offer intimate views of a unique traditional society that is now all but extinct. After his release in 1978, Shuguba was brought to the United States, where he died in 1991 at the age of 87. This moving personal account is based on Shuguba's autobiography supplemented by many hours of interviews conducted by writer Sumner Carnahan and translated by Lama Kunga Rinpoche, a Tibetan high lama who is one of Shuguba's sons. The book includes rare photos of Shuguba's family and associates as well as views of monasteries and other Tibetan cultural treasures that have since been destroyed.The Tibetan catastrophe -- the brutal ongoing campaign to stamp out every trace of Tibetan identity, culture, and civilisation -- continues unchecked after more than 35 years.
