Fron 1944 until 1951, at a time when strangers were not welcome in Tibet and when only a handful of visitors were fortunate enough to see the country, Heinrich Harrer lived there among Tibetans, most of the time in the forbidden city of Lhasa. His account of that experience, his book Seven Years in Tibet, was a worldwide success. Thirty years later he once more visited Tibet. This book is about the Tibet under Chinese rule and compares it with the free Tibet of the past, the country where religion and faith used to be the central feature and content of all life.This text continues the story of Heinrich Harrer as he meets old acquaintances, including the Dalai Lama, and examines the thaw in Tibet's relations with Peking.
