And what a wonder his last book is. It is full of the things that keep one riveted to Rampa's spiritual struggle, the essential core of truth that makes it impossible to turn away and accuse him of lies and fakery.
The book begins with Rampa as a very young man, not quite at the level of Buddhist monk but still a promising student. With his mentor, the Lama Mingyar Dondup, he sets out to rescue a hermit overseeing a small hermitage in the mountains of Tibet. Alas, a sudden earthquake topples the hermit to his death, and does serious injury to the Lama Mingyar Dondup's legs, who finds himself trapped under a boulder.
In the process of freeing his mentor, the young Rampa stumbles onto a secret compartment in the mountainside and carries the Lama inside. The compartment houses a flying saucer, which Rampa explores with the Lama and which will become the primary setting for the rest of the book.
Much to Rampa's surprise, the Lama is already familiar with the languages used by the aliens and with much of their technology. The ship has lain dormant for a million years, yet everything is still pristinely clean and functional. Some alien occupants are discovered frozen at their control consoles in a state of suspended animation.Read more ›
I was puzzled at first, then more and more disappointed as I read the first couple of chapters. Finally, I stopped reading in utter disgust.
Whoever wrote this slop could not have been the Lobsang Rampa who wrote the other well-known volumes. In Tibetan Sage, Rampa comes across as a simpleton and the Lama Mingyar Dondup as a condescending co-investigator. The syntax and writing style are clumsy and primitive, quite unlike Rampa's mature prose. There is no clear link that associates the events described in this book with other events in his life, except that he was still in training at Chakpori. The writer shows no insight, no reflection as would be the case of a mature chronicler recalling a major episode from his early teens. And the events/information described don't fit well with the knowledge and beliefs described in his other books.
Either all his other works had the benefit of competent editors while this one was left as a true example of his fifth-grade skill in Engligh composition, or this book is a fraudulent attempt to capitalize on Rampa's mystique. The latter seems more likely.
Save your money and skip this perversion of the T. Lobsang Rampa story.

Lobsang strikes again. A wonderfully written book that truly cannot be verified as authentic. Though it is enjoyable to read and allows one to be more opened minded about the... Read morePublished on November 16, 2013 by Garrett Gomes
