Detailed Product Description
Boston, 1983. 236 pp, mapped end papers. Used paperback. Near Fine condition.

After 40 years this classic is still in print as a paperback for $17! That alone tells you it is a good read. 

Now considered a classic among readers interested in Tibetan Buddhism and pilgrimages of the spirit of all kinds, A Journey in Ladakh is Andrew Harvey's spiritual travelogue of his arduous journey to one of the most remote parts of the world - the highest, least populated region in India, cut off by snow for six months each year. Buddhists have meditated in the mountains of Ladakh since three centuries before Christ, and it is there that the purest form of Tibetan Buddhism is still practiced today.
 
High up in the remote mountain passes on the Indian border with Tibet, China and Pakistan, Ladakh has been a center for Buddhist meditation since three centuries before Christ and is one of the last places on earth where a Tibetan Buddhist community still survives. 

Arriving by rickety bus, Andrew Harvey was unprepared for the breathtaking splendor, color and silence of the landscape, and was entranced by the simple way of life of its people, for whom the sacred and everyday merge into one. Frustrated by the spiritual poverty of his sophisticated, western, intellectual lifestyle, Andrew Harvey finds peace, hope and freedom in the Buddhist teachings of Thuksey Rinpoche at Shey monastery, and discovers spiritual strength.
 
Andrew Harvey, born in Coimbatore, South India, is a high-profile poet, writer, translator, filmmaker and teacher, and the author or editor of more than 30 books, including A Hidden Journey. Educated at Oxford University, he became the youngest Fellow of All Soul's College in its history. For the last 20 years he has traveled widely, living in India, London, Paris, New York and San Francisco - teaching at university level and writing.
