I read this book back in 1970 shortly after it was released, and re-read it several times after that before I 'lost' my copy while it was on loan to a friend back in '74. However I never forgot the title and author as it had a significant impact on my life. I was 19 at the time, had recently dropped out of University, and was strugling with the 'meaning of life'. I had also left my Catholic faith behind when I was 16 as I could not accept all of its teachings. This book gave me insights into an alternative discipline (religion), and was fundamental in opening my mind to all life's teachings. In particular I practiced the sleep method as described in this book and found it to work for me. A seminal book in my life. 30 some years later I'm still trying to grok 'Thou art God', but I'm closer!

If you ever had flying dreams, this is a must. If you were ever curious about where Jesus went in his youth, this is a must. If you ever wanted to better your spirit, and keep an open mind, this is a must read. Thank you Tuesday. Your books, I read while in prison. They made me a better person. I am now an Author also, giving inspiration.

A wonderful book, great story, beautifully written about the life of a young boy and his formation as a Buddhist Lama. This is one of those few stories that can change your life forever. Informative about a different philosophy and culture that we should appreciate and learn from.

The life of the tibetan lama--whether inspirational among the natives or simply a way to beat the streets, Mr. Rampa certainly does a wonderful job at making it strangely attractive. He is a very good story teller. I'll give him that. However, his assertions about his propriety (in not telling mere falsehoods), as he stated in his preface, pales in comparison to the actual outrageous claims he makes in this book. On one hand I trully want to believe his stories, yet on the other hand I can feel the subtle tap of reason and common sense telling me that what this this guy is giving me is a result of a florid imagination and not based on anything remotely related to reality. In retrospect I admit it was a good read. Yet I still can't help but tell myself that though the experiences that Mr. Rampa relates are actually completely feasible they are highly unlikely.
