Audible Editor Reviews

The Dalai Lama is both an extremely important contemporary political figure whose one word could ignite a violent uprising of the Tibetan people against China, and the 15th incarnation of the spirit of Avalokiteśvara, a bodhisattva of compassion who has endured invasions from Mongols and the modern Chinese. His contemporary incarnation is that smiling bespectacled fellow with a Facebook page and millions of followers worldwide. Confused about this remarkable person? Dalai Lama: Man, Monk, Mystic is the book for you.
Performed by the friendly, sturdy voice of Paul English, this is the first authorized biography of the Dalai Lama written by a non-Buddhist, the Indian journalist Mayank Chhaya. This portrait addresses the political struggles the Dalai Lama has inherited as well as his fascinating life story.
