Seeker, adventurer, pilgrim, and scholar, Madame David-Neel (18681969) was the first European woman to explore the once-forbidden city of Lhasa. This memoir offers an objective account of the supernatural events she witnessed during the 1920s among the mystics and hermits of Tibet. A practicing Buddhist and Oriental linguist, David-Neel recounts the fantastic effects of powerful meditative practices, breathing exercises, and shamanic magic. Her intelligent discourse, punctuated by dry wit, imparts authenticity to these tales of Tibetan mystics and their fascinating powersincluding levitation, telepathy, and the ability to walk on water and to survive naked in sub-zero temperatures. This unabridged republication of the classic 1932 edition includes 32 photographs taken by the author.
