Overview

King Gesar, renowned throughout Tibet and Central Asia, represents the ideal warrior -- the principle of all-victorious confidence. As the central force of sanity he conquers all his enemies, the evil forces of the four directions, who turn people's minds away from the sacred teachings that point the way to ultimate self-realization. These enemies of the four directions represent most graphically the different manifestations of cowardly mind that the ideal warrior subjugates through the power of his unconquerable confidence.

Filled with magic, adventure, and the triumphs of a great warrior-king, the legends recounted here will inspire and entertain young and old readers alike.
