Publisher's Summary

High in the rarefied air of the Himalayas stands the great Lamasery of Potala. Here, as a young boy, T. Lobsang Rampa came to study the teachings of the Lord Buddha.

Through the eyes of this young acolyte, we learn of the life of Prince Gautama and his discovery of the Middle Way, the Four Noble Truths, and the state of Nirvana.

Those who have heard of Lobsang Rampa's experiences in the lamaseries of Tibet will be greatly moved by this personal story of the transition of a daring, sometimes disobedient, youth into a serious, deep-thinking young man possessing quite exceptional sensory abilities.

    Story
    "Beautifully told with moral human tales woven in"

    This reflection on T. Lobsang Rampa's childhood as a young monk in training was a more gentle experience than his first three books where he dealt with a lot of cruelty as an adult after he left Tibet. As a boy he was a bit of a rascal and a few of those stories were included too with some humor at his expense. His observations of the people around him and their motivations are enjoyable. The metaphysical abilities he was learning about and the OBE experience he shared was very interesting. Above all, the detailed descriptions of Tibet, even of minor lifestyle behaviors gave an armchair traveler's experience. To share not only broad landscape visuals but even close up visual details, sounds, scents, and textures made this book almost a sensory experience at times.
