A first-person account of Tibetan political and social life in the 20th century from one of the Dalai Lama's principal teachers and advisors.

Born into an aristocratic Tibetan family in 1901, Trijang Rinpoche was quickly recognized as the reincarnation of a very important high lama. He later played a role in raising the boy who would become His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama — and enjoyed a front-row seat to many of the major historical events that befell 20th century Tibet.

Take an intimate look at the upbringing of the Dalai Lama as well as his encounters with Mao Tse Tung, Jawarlal Nehru, Pope John Paul the Second, and Indira Gandhi. Along the way, Rinpoche details the workings of Tibetan high society and politics with unvarnished frankness.

Widely known as a yogi with profound, lifelong religious training, Trijang was also a statesman, preserver of culture, poet, writer, and artist. Get to know him—and the Dalai Lama—better in this rich autobiography.
