It was the Buddhist nun and travel writer Alexandra David-Neel (1868 - 1969) who brought the manuscript "Illuminator, a Light of Gnosis - The Great Commentary on The Single Intention" by Dorje Sherab from Asia to France. The German foundation Garchen Stiftung reproduced the precious manuscript in its original size and colors. Thus the work is available to an audience of traditional and western experts as well as students of the Tibetan language.
