A truly fascinating account of the doings of four lamas from the Dolpo region of Nepal, an area still seeped in traditional Tibetan culture. The author, a professional historian, manages a page turning style of writing, with all the freshness and discovery of a traveler. And yet he also maintains careful accuracy, using original autobiographies and biographies to explore the interlinked lives of four great Buddhist practitioners who routinely used dream and meditative states to assist the lives of the villagers who came to them for help.
