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.
