Hidden Treasures and Secret Lives: A study of Pemalingpa (1450-1521) and the sixth Dalai Lama (1683-1706)

Described as “a case study in the mystique of Lamaism”, this book analyses the central mysteries manifested in the lives of the two best known Buddhist saints from the eastern Himalayas—figures tied to each other by a shared reputation for enigma and by a close genealogical link.
