Product Description

Review


"Dr. Evans-Wentz, who literally sat at the feet of a Tibetan l=ama for years in order to acquire his wisdom...not only displays a deeply sympathetic interest in those esoteric doctrines so characteristic of the genius of the East, but likewise possesses the rare faculty of making them more or less intelligible to the layman."--Anthropology (on the previous edition)

although at first the book reads as being " archaic " at first I found it to be a straitforward and honest translation also not difficult to
understand considering the complexity of the subject matter.
