It's the late 1920s in colonial India. Driven by a seemingly irrational wish, an aging British Army officer embarks upon an adventure of discovery that leads to forbidden Tibet - an ancient land obscured by centuries of isolation; a land of wonder, where miraculous feats are a part of everyday life. There, in the shadows of the earth's tallest mountains, he stumbles on the hidden Shangri-La, a mysterious place without time where people age but somehow never grow old. So begins Peter Kelder's chronicle of Colonel Bradford, whose extraordinary adventure brings him back to the West years later at age 73, looking and acting like a man of 45! How did he accomplish this remarkable feat of rejuvenation? The secret, says Bradford, is a series of five ancient Tibetan exercises, which anyone can perform in a matter of minutes. These simple exercises - which he calls the Five Rites - restore youthful health and vitality by balancing and harmonizing invisible energy vortexes within the body. Originally written in the 1930s, Kelder's book was revived in 1985. Helped only by word-of-mouth, it soared in popularity, quickly becoming a number one international bestseller. This expanded and updated edition restores the book's final chapter, unseen in more than half a century.
