“I commend this book to anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of Tibetan history and culture.”
– His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama“Secret Lives of the Dalai Lama
provides the modern reader a most insightful description of Tibetan history and culture. Engaging, accessible, and scrupulously fair in its treatment of the subject, perhaps its greatest merit is that it offers a new and rich way to appreciate the life and work of the present Dalai Lama.”
– Thupten Jinpa, PhD, Tibetan scholar and the principal translator to the Dalai Lama
