A Tibetan monk brings the Far East to the West
Rampa is known for detailing his experiences as first a neophyte and on to more advanced levels in the Tibetan Lamaism tradition. His experiences are subjective and pretty much unsubstantiated , but the Office of the Dalai Lama which i corresponded with long ago, suggests that regardless of the factual integrity of Rampa's work, many have learned about Tibetan buddhism, or Lamaism through his entertaining and anecdotal accounts.Little details, such as the butter tea made from barley the monks consumed daily bring the reader up close and personal to the way of life these adherents lead.Was this review helpful?
