In the 1980,s the writer left her comfortable and predictable life in Australia to embark upon unknown adventures in Tibet, Nepal and India. During the three decades that followed she lived near her Tibetan teachers and endeavoured to follow their teachings and advice.
During those years spent in Their proximity, many unusual and even magical things happened. These forced her to re-evaluate her understanding of what is real and what is not real.
The stories recounted in Tibetan Buddhist Tales are true events in which the writer either participated, witnessed or heard first hand.
There are tales of Yetis and ghosts. There are sad events and humorous ones, but all point back to the fundamental questions as to 'who and what we REALLY are.' Not 'who and what we THINK we are.'
Discovering the Self is the single panacea to solving all of life's seeming problems.
About the Author
Lyse Lauren grew up in Nelson, New Zealand as the third of four children. Her 'known' world was abruptly shaken when she had a brief but profound spiritual experience as a child. Just a few years later she was 'challenged' yet again when dragged out to sea by ocean currents and almost drowned. These two events were the catalyst for a pronounced intention to discover the 'meaning of life.' Driven by this deep inner longing, she travelled to Australia and eventually to Tibet, Nepal and then India, where she met her Master, a Tibetan Lama of high standing. In his presence she was able to rediscover what she had glimpsed as a child. Over a period of several decades she has lived near her teachers in various locations in the Himalayas.
