The Way of the White Clouds – The Classic Spiritual Travelogue by One of Tibet’s Best-known Explorers
By Lama Anagarika Govinda
Read by Sean Barrett
13 hours 30 minutes
The Way of the White Clouds is the remarkable narrative of a pilgrimage which could not be made today. In 1948, Lama Anagarika Govinda made an unforgettable journey into Tibet before its invasion by the Chinese. His unique account is not only a spectacular and gloriously poetic story of exploration and discovery; it is also invaluable for its sensitivity and clearly presented interpretation of the Tibetan tradition.
Above all, this book is a vivid and beautifully written account of a personal spiritual journey, his meeting with his guru Tomo Geshé Rimpoché and his growing understanding of, and commitment to, the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism.
