Lama Anagarika Govinda [E. Hoffmann] is a German who spent most of his adult life studying with Buddhist spiritual masters in Tibet. He moved to India when the Dalai Lama escaped after the invasion of China.

"Foundations of Tibetan Mysticism" is one of the books in the primary bibliography of my free ebook on comparative mysticism" at suprarational.org/gail2012.pdf and an essential guide for those who are interested in the mysticism of the Vajrayana school of Buddhism.
