The true account of a man drawn to explore the mysteries of Tibetan spirituality hidden from the outside world for centuries. The story begins in the Highlands of Scotland and quickly moves to the "roof of the world" in the Himalayas where questions are put, and answers revealed, by master teachers in the monasteries on the High Plateau. Set at a time before the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1950 and the destruction of hundreds of monasteries and the torture and murder of monks that followed, Dr. MacDonald-Bayne gives the reader a rare glimpse of life as it was, amongst these deeply spiritual and peaceful people. He returned to teach and lecture throughout the world following his life-changing encounters with his spiritual mentors in what was a peaceful land of higher thought. This is the sequel to the author's earlier work, Beyond the Himalayas.
