Publisher's Summary

The classic spiritual travelogue by one of Tibet’s best-known explorers, The Way of the White Clouds is the remarkable narrative of a pilgrimage which could not be made today.
In 1948, Lama Anagarika Govinda made an unforgettable journey into Tibet before its invasion by the Chinese. His unique account is not only a spectacular and gloriously poetic story of exploration and discovery; it is also invaluable for its sensitivity and clearly presented interpretation of the Tibetan tradition.
Above all, this book is a vivid and beautifully written account of a personal spiritual journey, his meeting with his guru, Tomo Geshé Rimpoché, and his growing understanding of and commitment to the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism.

An absolute must read Precious Book

This book is an account of a truly great and precious Lama, describing an amazing time and place which Tibet once was. A place where actual miracles were witnessed, where true sainthood was common, and where true Buddhas could be encountered in the form of teachers. This book has truly put to rest my doubts about reincarnation and has reaffirmed and strengthen my resolve on the path.

I highly recommend it!

Inspirational with excellent narration.

I was saddened whenif heard the words "And so I will close this book ..." , because it meant it was over. The narration was so good. Right tempo, intonation, everything.
