Overview

Dennis Lingwood, an Englishman and novice Buddhist monk, follows his Indian Buddhist teacher on a pilgrimage to find himself in Kalimpong, a hill station at the foot of the Himalayas. It is 1950, and Tibetan Buddhism has begun its exodus into India, with Kalimpong as a gateway.

In this latest addition to his memoirs, Lingwood, better known as Urgyen Sangharakshita, shares his recollections of those Tibetan gurus and traveling academics who lived in and passed through Kalimpong. Some, like Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, formally impart their wisdom; others teach invaluable lessons by just living their lives.
