Dalai Lama: Man, Monk, Mystic – Mayank Chaya (2007)

❤️❤️❤️

Mayank Chaya spent ten years researching and writing the 14th Dalai Lama’s authorized biography, and while he states at the outset that he does not take sides in the China/Tibet conflict, his wording throughout makes it clear that the author sits firmly on the side of Tibet. The book gives people an intimate look at the popular figure that is Tenzin Gyatso. Chaya covers the history of Buddhism, the biography of the Dalai Lama, the history of the conflict, and popularity of the Dalai Lama in the West. For readers who are curious about the Dalai Lama and his life in exile, or those looking to understand Buddhism, this is a wonderful book. Chaya interviewed and travelled with the Dalai Lama several times over 10 years, and interviewed other famous Buddhists, such as Richard Gere, and Buddhist scholars. (352 pages)
