really liked it
Read in March, 2010

The book is worth a read to get an insight into the world of Tibetan Buddhism, and the life of a tulku, which is the living incarnation of a revered master from the past. Urgyen talks about his life and the people he knew, including his formidable grandmother, and also covers some of the things that happened to the sacred teachings when the Chinese invaded Tibet.

I think that, if you aren't a Buddhist, you may find the book a little dry. I enjoyed it and found it an interesting relief to some of the heavier text one has to read if one's lama is teaching them, it's an accessible book.
