Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Lost Teachings of Lama Govinda offers a precious glimpse into the consciousness of an extraordinary scholar and mystic, shedding new light on Govindas legendary role as both a pioneer and a prophet. Born in Germany, Lama Govinda was one of the first Westerners to introduce Tibetan Buddhism as an initiate in the tradition. His famed works, The Way of the White Clouds and Foundations of Tibetan Buddhism, live on as some of the best in the field. In this collection of essays and dialogues, Govinda delivers insights that are both timely and timeless. Ranging in issues and themes, including transpersonal psychology, drugs and meditation, Christianity, Theravada and Zen Buddhism, and the I Ching, editor Richard Power brings together Lama Govindas rarest material—some never before published, some long out of circulation.

Synopsis:

Born in Germany in 1898, Lama Govinda was one of the first Westerners to present Tibetan Buddhism as an initiate and practitioner of the tradition. His books, Way of the White Clouds and Foundations of Tibetan Buddhism, remain among the best and most inspiring works in the field. Published for the first time, this complete collection of Govinda's essays considers his legacy for the 21st Century. The essays define Buddhism in relation to Western psychology, Christianity, Chinese Taoist philosophy, and scientific exploration into consciousness. In addition to an authoritative biography of Lama Govinda, the book offers a perspective on his role in bringing Dharma to the West and insights into four of his masterpieces.
