Description
The former religion writer for The Australian and a practicing Buddhist, Vanessa Walker went to the home of the Dalai Lama to explore her religion through the eyes of its people. She wasn't there looking for love, let alone a husband, and she certainly didn't plan on becoming pregnant by a disrobed Tibetan monk. But it seems karma sometimes works in mysterious ways. In the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, McLeod Ganj is a place of quiet beauty and surprising violence, where a government consults an ancient oracle for matters of importance and people believe wholeheartedly in the truth of miracles. It is also a place where monks wear Nike trainers, where the Dalai Lama's brother struggles with his own inner demons, and where a divided town must choose between protesting the death sentence of a monk or joining a pelvis-thrusting Tibetan and his bevy of beauties at the Miss Tibet beauty pageant. Tumultuous and poignant, insightful and hilarious, Walker's book is an unexpected journey to the heart of Tibetan Buddhism.
