As well as an extensive introduction, this edition contains notes to all four books, a bibliographical index, a general index and an index of Tibetan words. The introduction is particularly valuable in that it sets the importance of Desideri's mission in the general context of the Jesuit Missions to Tibet.
In Desideri's account we receive the first accurate general description of Tibet: from the natural world to the sociological and anthropological aspects of the people and a complete exposition of Lamaism. His is the only complete reconstruction that we possess of the Tibetan religion, founded entirely on canonical texts. And all of this more than a century before Europeans had any knowledge of the Tibetan language.

Is the second volume in our new "What Buddhism can offer" series which is looking at how Buddhism can help us in our daily lives. - Is unique in that it is not about being a good parent but about spiritual growth through parenting. Of course, positive loving parenting is hopefully a consequence of this but this is not the primary focus of the book. - As alluded to above, the focus of the book is the parents' spiritual growth and well-being as opposed to being directly child-focused which is something of a new departure. - Is easy to connect with as is based on numerous interviews with personal stories and experiences. - Includes extracts and reflections for fathers and also for parents with teenagers as opposed to focusing solely on mothers with very young children, which is often the limitation of similar books - Is practical and experience based. - Is broadly relevant across religions and spiritual beliefs - anyone with an interest in spiritual growth could engage and connect with the themes in the book.

Himalayan Pilgrimage: A Study of Tibetan Religion by a Traveller Through Western Nepal
Himalayan Pilgrimage: A Study of Tibetan Religion by a Traveller Through Western Nepal
By: David Snellgrove
Our Price: $35.00
Members Price: $31.50

Himalayan Pilgrimage describes a seven months' journey which the author made through the remote Tibetan regions of Western Nepal in 1956. Travelling everywhere on foot with his Nepalese companion, Pasang Khambache Sherpa, who is eulogized in this new edition, Dr. Snellgrove covered more than a thousand miles of mountainous country and crossed some fifteen major passes of between seventeen- and twenty-thousand feet in altitude. The intention of the journey was to learn of the different regions and people and to study in particular the types of Tibetan religion practiced in those remote lands. The most interesting of these is perhaps Dolpo, through which very few foreigners have passed, then or to the present day. The author, well known for his Buddhist studies and for his affection for Tibetan peoples, gives a lively and sympathetic account of the traditional lives and beliefs of these cheerful people.

By the end of his remarkable journey he had gained a reputation as a doctor, studied at the ancient university of Sera and met the Dalai Lama himself, while keeping his identity secret for over a year.
