But let us first look at the framework of the story Rampa tells. It begins with a young Buddhist monk's arrival at the cave of another monk who is a hermit greatly advanced in years. The hermit has been expecting the younger priest to visit for more than sixty years, meanwhile enduring deprivations of mind and body that would kill many less faithful to their appointed task. The young monk is to be the repository of knowledge that his elder counterpart has been waiting to impart to him.
The hermit's own story began when he was himself a young Tibetan priest and was taken captive by the Chinese, who falsely believed he was carrying classified information to their enemies. The hermit/priest is tortured as part of his interrogation, and eventually has his eyes gouged out before being thrown on a nearby dung heap to die. Now blinded and barely alive, he makes his escape to the mountains, where he is eventually captured by the aliens and taken to an underground location for indoctrination into the mysteries he is to pass on to the world.
The aliens tell him he has been chosen because he has an exceptional memory that will allow him to vividly remember the details of their message to the world for the rest of his life.Read more ›
Tuesday gives first hand accounts and a story from a dying Hermit that will send tingles down your spine. How humanity came to be on this planet and why the ancient astronaut theory is real but in a way that makes sense on a human level, complete with greed, lust and the hunger for power and how all three can even corrupt the 'Gods'.
Don't miss this epic tale from a Tibetan Master!
Like good old ways in a bookshop.
The Hermit is a disappointing book. But of course, after reading "The third Eye", none of Rampa books measure up to the standard. The Hermit writing style is not of the same author, it lacks the authentic feel. I had been to Tibet, understand the Asia culture and living in this modern day, the story seems to flow from some other fiction books written by Westerners.I ordered it from Amazon due to the Rampa fever and hunger for more of his journey in life.

Given the controversy around the validity of Lobsang Rampa, I believe one has to be a bit skeptical of the content. Read morePublished on February 5, 2009 by Herman
