Facing Mount Kanchenjunga
Windhorse Publications, 29.04.2014. - 512 страница
In 1950 Kalimpong was a lively trading town in the intrigue-ridden corner of India that borders Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and Tibet. Finding a welcome in this town, nestled high in the mountains, were a bewildering array of guests and settlers, including Sangharakshita, a young English monk. In this delightful volume of memoirs, Sangharakshita shares the incidents and insights of his early years in Kalimpong, including a meeting with Dr B.R. Ambedkar and his friendship with Lama Anagarika Govinda.
