Publisher's Synopsis

Lama Yeshe didn't see a car until he was fifteen. But everything changed with the arrival of Chinese army vehicles in 1959. In the wake of the deadly Tibetan Uprising, he escaped to India through the Himalayas as one of only 13 survivors out of 300 refugees.

Now in his seventies and a leading monk at the Samye Ling monastery in Scotland, Lama Yeshe casts a hopeful look back at his momentous life - from his quiet early years and the moment his world changed to his time spent in America, experiencing the excesses of the Woodstock generation. And to his life now.

Written with erudition and humour, From a Mountain in Tibet shines a light on how the most desperate of situations can help us to uncover vital life lessons and attain lasting peace and contentment.
