Book Description
Now considered a classic among readers interested in Tibetan Buddhism and pilgrimages of the spirit of all kinds, A Journey in Ladakh is Andrew Harvey's spiritual travelogue of his arduous journey to one of the most remote parts of the world--the highest, least populated region in India, cut off by snow for six months each year. Buddhists have meditated in the mountains of Ladakh since three centuries before Christ, and it is there that the purest form of Tibetan Buddhism is still practiced today.

Ingram
Far in the north of India are the mountains of Ladakh. Cut off by snow for six months of the year, Ladakh is where the purest form of Tibetan Buddhism is practiced, with meditations that date back to 300 years before the birth of Christ. Harvey traveled the arduous road to Ladakh in search of the old Tibetan traditions.
