black titles spine; b/w. frontis illust. 'The Wheel of Life' painted by the court artist of Sikkim; cover illust. is a tankha showing a wheel of life; "Among the hundreds of books written about Asian religions, relativel few, excepting those relating exclusively to Zen, concern the spiritual life of the countries farther east than India. Moreover, until recently, most books on Chinese and Tibetan religions have been written by people of an alien faith. As for me, it has been my good fortune to spend most of my adult life in China and neighbouring countries and, as a Mahayana Buddhist, to seek there the wellsprings of a faith shared with the people around me. All I have written is the truth and not fiction, the reconstructions of long past events being as faithful as memory permits.
