Geshe Lam Rim's A Necklace of Good Fortune which propounds the Buddhist theory of Karma and past and future lives carries a rare significance uncommon among such writings. Lucid and sincere in his approach and analysis, A Necklace of Good Fortune stands out at the same time as the spiritual and political testimony of the true courage of a Tibetan Buddhist monk who singlehandedly challenged the formidable censorship of Mao's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in Tibet and defied the Chinese anti-religion propaganda with a scientific religious work that is at once bold and inspiring.Geshe Lam Rim is one of those Tibetan Buddhist monks who, even under the abusive and oppressive times of the Cultural Revolution and subsequent imprisonment by the Chinese, courageously withstood the terrors of the Chinese occupation with his undying faith in the Buddha and the Tibetan Buddhist heritage. In his own words : "At this time of the setting of The Sun of Dharma, even if one has but the light of a firefly, still one must do whatever one can rather than let darkness prevail. A Necklace of Good Fortune is born out of this admirable sense of duty and dedication towards the Buddha Dharma at a time when the very survival of Tibetan culture and Religion is threatened by the Chinese atheist ideology.Printed Pages: 55.
