Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is renowned the world over for his unswerving dedication to non-violence in his efforts to achieve justice for Tibet. But the current Dalai Lama is fourteenth in a lineage whose history is every bit as bloody and intrigue-laden as that of the Papacy. The 'first' Dalai Lama was in fact the third; the second described himself as 'a mad beggar monk'; the fourth was not Tibetan at all but a direct descendant of Genghis Khan. The sixth was a notorious womaniser, while four successive Dalai Lamas were almost certainly murdered. The present Dalai Lama has himself been the target of attacks that resulted in the brutal murder of a close colleague. He readily admits that Tibet never was Shangri La. HOLDER OF THE WHITE LOTUS gives a fast-paced and absorbing insight into the real story of Tibetan culture, politics and spirituality.
