Description About the author
Tibet has suffered extreme political turmoil and upheaval over the last fifty odd years. Occupied in 1950, Red Guards destroyed thousands of official buildings and holy places during the Cultural Revolution and religious freedom and traditional education is still severely under threat. Due to the strength of the Tibetan`s faith in Buddha and the Dalai Lama and against the odds many buildings have been reconstructed and their devotion and belief have remained extraordinarily strong. Buddhism permeates every part of a Tibetan`s life, whether they are living in Tibet or are part of the hundreds of thousands that live away from their homeland, in Nepal, India or the United States.

The Path to Buddha is divided into five parts, with two main chapters devoted to the religious and lay Buddhists on their pilgrimages to holy sites. We see the monks in animated discussion, meditation and prayer and follow the devout believers on their arduous journeys to prayer. These two main chapters are interspersed with sections of portraits of this proud and dignified people whose own innate sense of style and fashion can be seen in the way they dress and adorn themselves.
