Summary

"Westerners who are well versed in Tibetan Buddhism owe a great debt of gratitude to Lama Anagarika Govinda (1898-1985), the German-born mystic who became a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka and then a Tibetan lama. His writings on the esoteric aspects of Vajrayana Buddhism, such as Foundations of Tibetan Mysticism and The Way of the White Clouds, remain classics almost two generations after their appearance.
