About this Item

Nestling amidst the great Himalayas, the tiny kingdom of Tibet evokes images of monasteries, meditating monks, Buddhism and, towering above them all, the Dalai Lama. The Tibetan diaspora is perhaps the only community in the world today wherein the spiritual head also dons the mantle of political leadership. This book journeys through Tibet - the exile of the current (fourteenth) Dalai Lama and his followers and their epic escape to seek refuge in India - the abrupt transportation of their lives from the medieval period to the 20th century and the continuing non-violent struggle of His Holiness for Tibetan rights and his homeland. Of sizeable contemporary interest and interspersed with rare archival photos, this book is an empathetic look at the spiritual influence that continues to guide Tibetans today. Includes full color photographs. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 003014
