The Dalai Lamas of Tibet are unique. A succession of fourteen have been guiding the spiritual life of the Tibetan people for nearly six centuries, and for three hundred years have held secular power as well.

Thubten Gyatso, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama, was born to a peasant family in 1876. He was discovered, brought to Lhasa and enthroned at the age of three. Educated as a monk, he took over full power when he was eighteen... View more info

Man's destiny has been shaped by two dominant and hostile forces-war and love. Throughout the ages people have been asking, how to prevent wars? The answer has always evaded them. Yet the people of the hidden land of Tibet found it. This happened when Buddhism gained sway over Tibet. Centuries ago, before Buddhism reached Tibet, the Tibetans were followers of a nature worshipping religion called upon by them. Then they were warlike and aggressive.

The area of Tibet is large. Intercourse of one part with another is restricted, for the country is difficult and the means of travel are primitive. It follows that manners and customs vary in different districts and provinces. So a custom or interpretation need not be condemned as inaccurate because another sojouner has seen or heard it different elsewhere. The present book is an attempt to speak about the life of the people in their own homes, a miscellany of facts, and occassional ideas to clothe those facts, are all that this book can offer. Printed Pages: 432 with 40 plates & 3 maps. View more info
