0 Reviews

An unprecedented look at the oracular rites of Tibetan Buddhism, this biography examines the life of Thubten Ngodup, at once a humble monk as well as the mouthpiece of the fearsome god Dordjé Dragden—and, as such, a prophet to the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile. The picture that emerges is that of a mystical, mysterious, and wholly magical Tibet.

 

Una vista sin precedentes de los ritos proféticos del budismo tibetano, esta biografía examina la vida de Thubten Ngodup, a la vez un monje humilde y la portavoz del dios pavoroso Dordjé Dragden—y, como tal, un profeta para el Dalai Lama y el gobierno en exilio de Tíbet. El cuadro que emerge es ése de un Tíbet místico, misterioso y totalmente mágico.
