Description About the author Contents
 
The knowledge world already has hundreds of books on Tibet, then why another book?

This work is not the history of Tibet and its people, it is neither an exposition of Buddhist teachings and philosophy nor does it explain their tantric traditions and practices; it is not a compilation of their mysteries, magical practices and miracles, nor of feats of human endurance borne out of yoga; it is not a dissertation of doctrines of karma, birth and incarnation nor it is an explanatory note on the famous 'Tibetan Book of the Dead', near-death experiences, dreams and psychic phenomena; it is not even meant to justify the institution of oracles and their trances although it does portray them in fair light.

This work is a conglomeration of all that it is not supposed to be, as aforesaid. It covers a wide panorama of Tibetan life, customs, traditions, beliefs, practices, food and religion. In short, it covers Tibetan way of life in one small volume where each of these topics might require a number of volumes. It gives a bird's eye view of wide spectrum of kaleidoscope that indeed Tibet was before the Chinese communists totally brutalised the country and its people. However, this work does categorically say, in the words of His Holiness, that: Buddhism is not a religion, it is a way of life.
