MANTRAS & MISDEMEANOURS

VANESSA WALKER, 2005, ALLEN & UNWIN

Nestled in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, McLeod Ganj is a town of quiet beauty and surprising violence, where reality has the wide-open sense of a dream. The home of the Dalai Lama, it is a place where a government consults an ancient oracle for matters of importance, monasteries flourish and people believe wholeheartedly in the truth of miracles.

Tumultuous and funny, insightful and poignant, Mantras and Misdemeanours is a compelling journey to the heart of Tibetan Buddhism.
