The autobiography of Khyongla Rato is a moving human interest story set in the last few decades of life in Tibet before Communists seized control of the country in 1959. It is the only record in English of daily life in Tibet's great monastic universities. Readers can experience Tibet's customs and ceremonies, as well as the emotions and intellectual challenges of the rigourous training required to pass exams in Buddhist sutra and tantra studies. Joseph Campbell, one of Khyongla Rato's students, wrote the introduction to the book.
