Description About the author Contents
A devoted Buddhist and a spokesman for Tibetan culture, Lama Anagarika Govinda was one of the last foreigners to journey through Tibet before the Chinese invasion of 1950. Govinda’s luminous and candid account is a spectacular and gloriously poetic story of exploration and discovery, and a sensitive and lucid interpretation of Tibetan traditions. Comprised of elements from several genres - spiritual journeys, adventure narratives, anthropological field reports, and philosophical commentaries, The Way of the White Clouds is one of the twentieth century’s classic spiritual biographies and an invaluable document about a place and a way of thinking that are virtually defined by their mysteries.
Robert Thurman’s perceptive new introduction to the volume places Govinda’s writings in historical context and expands understanding of Tibet, Buddhism, and the life of a remarkable man who, as Thurman remarks, is “undoubtedly one of the West’s greatest minds of the twentieth century.”

Hypnotic picture of Tibet January 13, 2006
Reviewer: New Statesman & Society  
"A hypnotic picture of the Tibet which has vanisshed...It tells of terrible journeys, of men masked against the sun (riding through ethereal regions with their feet frozen). of welcoming fog-girt monasteries lit by butter lamps at the jouerney's end."
