Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Namgyal Lhamo Taklha recounts her remarkable life in Born in Lhasa. She describes her childhood in a Tibet that no longer exists and chronicles her life and work on four continents. It is an engaging history of the Tibetan diaspora—dramatic and filled with anecdotes. Taklha's autobiography differs from those of other prominent Tibetans because she discusses the unexpected challenges of living in America and Europe.

Synopsis:

Chronicles the life of the author from her birth in Tibet and marriage to the brother of the Dalai Lama, discussing her experiences as she watched the invasion of Tibet and her work in various Tibetan relocation projects.

Synopsis:

It is a fabulous account of the old traditions of her culture and the inspiring strength with which she faced her own personal struggles and the loss of the world she knew as a child.

About the Author
