  • Lama Anagarika Govinda was one of the last foreigners to journey through Tibet before the Chinese invasion of 1950. A devoted Buddhist and a spokesman for Tibetan culture, Govinda's luminous and candid account is a spectacular and gloriously poetic story of exploration and discovery, and a sensitive and lucid interpretation of Tibetan traditions. Robert Thurman's perceptive new introduction to the volume places Govinda's writings in historical context and opens a new door on understanding Tibet, Buddhism, and the life of a remarkable man who, as Thurman remarks, is "undoubtedly one of the West's greatest minds of the twentieth century, a member of the pantheon that includes Einstein, Heisenberg, Wittgenstein, Solzhenitsyn, Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama."

    Lama Anagarika Govinda

    Lama Anagarika Govinda (1898 - 1985) was born Ernst Lothar Hoffman in Waldheim, Germany, the son of a German father and a Bolivian mother. In his twenties and thirties he became increasingly interested in Buddhism, first studying in Ceylon and then in India, making several visits to Tibet in the 1930s and 40s. He spent his final years living in the Bay Area of Northern California.
