Indian edition. 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 Mysticism, remain among the best and most inspiring works in the field. This collection of Govinda's essays considers his legacy for the twenty-first century. The essays define Buddhism in relation to Western psychology, Christianity, Chinese Taoist philosophy, and scientific exploration into consciousness. In addition to a brief biography of Lama Govinda, the book also includes question and answer sessions from a seminar with Lama Govinda in 1975; and essays on Drugs and Meditation: Consciousness Expansion and Disintegration versus Concentration and Spiritual Regeneration; From Theravada to Zen; Meditation; a New Look at the I Ching; Teilhard de Chardin and the Mirror of Eastern Thought; and the Act of Will and its Role in the Practice of Meditation.

"Westerners who are well versed in Tibetan Buddhism owe a great debt of gratitude to Lama Anagarika Govinda, the German-born mystic who became a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka and then a Tibetan lama…Govinda was a prolific writer, and Power's portrait of him distills this reservoir of spiritual literature down to its essence, presenting ancient mysteries in an accessible and inspiring manner." Glenn H.Mullin.
