Himalaya: the secret of the Golden Tara
It all started with a letter from Ladakh - an old monk asked his friend Dieter Glogowski to locate the Golden Tara, the gilded statue of a goddess important in Tibetan Buddhism and which had been lost during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Glogowski accepted the challenge and set off on an adventure that would take him from Tibet to Bhutan, Sikkim and Kailash. The long sojourn also became an inner journey. The author's account and photographs guide us on this quest to uncover the secret of the Golden Tara.
