Since 1959 the elite of the Tibetan Lamas has taken refuge in India and Sikkim, and thus become less inaccessible. Guided by the Dalai Lama's personal interpreter, Sonam T. Kazi, Desjardins spent several months in monasteries in the Himalayas and in the company of the most respected Tibetan sages. The Message of the Tibetans is the last message of a world, both celebrated and ignored, in peril. This book is not composed of previous works: it is a sincere witness to an experience gained among the authentic representatives of the Tibetan Tradition. It expounds Tantrism for the general public and not only for specialists.(Publisher). Good / good. Item #9968
