Overview

A narrative with a deep philosophical insights hidden in every nook and corner of every sentence… Back Over the Mountains is the true story of unexpected friendship between a Buddhist monk seeking to establish himself far from his homeland, and a writer clinging to the remnants of fading borderland culture. When she unexpectedly meets exiled Tibetan Buddhist monk Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe, she begins a journey that not only leads her to remote corners of the Himalayas, but into the realm of memory, loss, and acceptance. From the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet to the secret valley of Tsum, Nepal, Marshall first follows in the footsteps of her teacher before finding the courage to seek out her own spiritual path. While trying to mend Kushok’s broken past, she discovers she’s healing her own, too. Jane Marshall has created a beautiful narrative with deep philosophical insights hidden in every nook and corner of every sentence. Mountain pebbles, people, wind, and longing are all carefully knitted together to form an inspirational memoir of her travels to Nepal in search for inner peace. This book comes across as transparent, emotional, and enlightening. It is bound to resonate and act as a brightly lit pathway for the ever-searching, travelling soul.
