The story picks up and continues with a "Forrest Gump" like life story of this fascinating man who is in the middle of historic times, meeting historical figures. The torture by Japanese soldiers in this second book is horrific. But anyone who has seen today's action movies will surely be able to handle the story, because it is more about the personal strength with which all was endured.
No history taught me in early school had mentioned the cruel atrocities inflicted on one human being upon another when you give a regular person a uniform and weapon and an ideological sense of superiority, or a little bit of authority over other people.
The story describes the pettiness and cruelty but also the human ability to overcome and outwit. The dips back into the metaphysical experiences and training, and ancient human history were fascinating reprieves.
I've already started the next book, which continues this story, and in the next book, the uniform, weapons, and sense of superiority belong to Chinese soldiers who do their own horrific acts against Tibetan people. Why rape and physical abuse and cruelty is part of war is never taught in school and how it becomes part of a military group is a mystery.
I was in error in my previous review on The Third Eye. The third book is included on Audible. 1) The Third Eye (1956) 2) Doctor From Lhasa (1959) and 3) The Rampa Story (1960) are all available on Audible and make for interesting and illuminating listening.
I have found the listing of the books written by T. Lopsang Rampa at a website lopsang dot org. It also gives information on books incorrectly attributed as being authored by T. Lopsang Rampa.
With regard to the book about Venus, the publisher of that book and his method of producing articles or books was frankly discussed in John Keel's third book in a trilogy offered on Audible and listening to John Keel discuss his contemporaries in the UFO research field could be illuminating as to why the authorship of the Venus book could be questionable.

This book really drew me into a fantastic world. I am in awe by the series. Included are some great exercises that you can do at home.
