In 1935, Tenzin Gyatso was born to a peasant family on a farm. At the age of three, he was recognized as the fourteenth reincarnation of the Buddha of Compassion. At Lassa, far away from the world, he was initiated into wisdom, he recited sacred texts and practised meditation. This book is an account of the rigorous education he received, and how he was able to demonstrate great maturity and wisdom from a very young age, faced with the dramatic events sweeping Tibet. Claude B. Levenson is one of the people most familiar with the Dalai Lama. She is therefore particularly able to describe the youth and personality of this exceptional being.
