5.0 out of 5 stars Do you believe? Doesn't matter...fascinating either way!, 19 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Third Eye (Mass Market Paperback)
This author wrote a total of 19 affordable paperbacks on the topics of Tibet and the forgotten mystic abilities of mankind. You may have heard the stories about the author, that he was a "hoax", not who he claimed to be. Read the books! He openly discusses all of these accusations, and often states that because his story is so unusual, he is often disbelieved. Then, once you tire of the whole controversy regarding the author, you will still be left with a wealth of down-to-earth information about topics considered "out of this world". If you are seriously interested in the possibilites of reincarnation, astral travel, meditation, etc. but you don't want to read a bunch of New Age jibber-jabber, read The Third Eye and any other book by T. Lobsang Rampa. The author's writing style is warm and humourous, interweaving the lessons with stories from his facinating life experience. I have read and re-read all 19 of his books so I am obviously a fan...but I was skeptical at first. You will be too, because the story is unlike any you've ever heard. Never mind, whether you consider his work fact or fiction, Rampa's books are page-turners one and all. (Note: those who mentioned their wish to contact the author...unfortunately, this is not possible because he passed away in 1981.)

What Rampa wrote about was very largely true and very very important, that's why the establishment don't want you to read it. Forget the plumber bit and the Lhasa bit- that's of no importance whatsoever. Rampa has made accessible a very important doctrine to everyday folk and that's why the BBC have tried to belittle him.

Dodwell says:
Still doesn't take away the fact that he was plain old Cyril Hoskins, a plumber from Portsmouth. Good marketing hoax though. He fooled a few million people and made a decent amount of money out of his cracker barrel "teachings". Good for him.

I see nothing 'plain' about being a plumber from Plymouth- I mean Blair was once a 'manager' at a Tesco supermarket... now look at him...

Please read the chapter about this book in Donald S. Lopez's Prisoners of Shangri-la ... It is very revealing and interesting.
