When we think about Tibet, we are often taken back to the stories of the search for Shangri-La. We are beguiled by stories of men and women who spend their entire lives in meditation in hopes to achieve liberation from the ties that bind us here on this Earth. We are further in awe of those stories of the great mystics who, though Tibetan rituals, develop supernatural powers. All these stories have elements of truth in them. Rumors of this nature are often unconfirmed facts, as it were. Tibetan Buddhism is fascinating. It is by far the most mystical and most complex form of Buddhism throughout the spectrum of Buddhist sects. Most in popular culture associate it mostly with the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet. However, there is so much more to it, so much in fact that no single volume could ever capture the magic and the wonder of this great tradition. Like most Eastern traditions, Tibetan Buddhism has a rich tradition of mantra chanting and magick. Some of the rituals are so elaborate they can often intimidate the minds of those with entrenched Western sensibilities. A good way to pierce the mystery is to work with the mantras of this great tradition. In this book we will perform seven rituals using Tibetan mantras. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Resheph.

In the adventure that lies ahead, Janet Locke doesn't find the mythical city, but she does find a new, joyous existence up on the roof of the world. It starts with phone call. An old friend wants to know if Janet wants to join her on a bicycling trip through Bhutan. Janet knows absolutely nothing about the small, central Asian country. When she looks it up on the Internet, she learns that its gross national product is happiness. Janet, frustrated with life's challenging moments, decides that this sounds delightful. After a quick stop in Thailand, Janet is on to Bhutan. She falls in love with the charming country. As Janet ventures out into the wilderness surrounding the awe-inspiring Himalayas, she learns lessons about the many worries she carries. Like so many others, this journey will change her life.

In a remote kingdom hidden in the Himalayas, there is a trail said to be the toughest trek in the world—24 days, 216 miles, 11 mountain passes, and enough ghost stories to scare an exorcist. In 2007 Kevin Grange decided to acquaint himself with the country of Bhutan by taking on this infamous trail, the Snowman Trek. He was 33, at a turning point in life, and figured the best way to go when at a crossroad was up. Against a backdrop of Buddhist monasteries and soaring mountains, Grange ventured beyond the mapped world to visit time-lost villages and sacred valleys. In the process, recounted here with a blend of laugh-out-loud humor, heartfelt insight, and acute observation, he tested the limits of physical endurance, met a fascinating assortment of characters, and discovered truths about faith, hope, and the shrouded secret of blossom rain. Beneath Blossom Rain, Grange’s account of his journey, packs an adventure story, a romantic twist, and a celebration of group travel into a single entertaining book. The result is the ultimate journey for any traveler, armchair or otherwise. Along with high adventure, it delivers an engaging look at Bhutan—a country that governs by a policy of Gross National Happiness and that many regard as the last Shangri-La. 1. Language: English.

It was the early 1960s. The place, a far-off corner of the Himalayas long fabled in Tibetan tradition to be hiding a valley of immortality among its peaks and glaciers - a real-life Shangri-La. They waited generations for the prophesied lama to come, the one with the secret knowledge of how to "open" the Hidden Land. Then, one day, he came. His name was Tulshuk Lingpa.This book tells the true story of this charismatic visionary lama and his remarkable expedition. Against the wishes of the kings of both Sikkim and Nepal, he and over three hundred followers ventured up the snowy slopes of the third highest mountain of the planet. Their aim: to open a crack in the very fabric of reality and go to a land we would all wish to inhabit if it were only there - a land of peace and concord.Forty years later, the author spends over five years tracking down the surviving members of this extraordinary expedition. He deftly weaves their stories together with humor, wisdom, and scholarly research into Tibetan traditions of Hidden Lands, all the while reflecting on what this means for the rest of us.“Like no other book I have ever read…a riveting tale of adventure…honest to the real spirit of Tibet…both unique and intriguing…an engrossing read. Highly recommended.” (Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, from the Foreword)From Tulshuk Lingpa’s Guidebook to the Hidden Land:“Don’t listen to anybody. Decide by yourself and practice madness. Develop courage for the benefit of all sentient beings. Then you will automatically be free from the knot of attachment. Then you will continually have the confidence of fearlessness and you can then try to open the Great Door of the Hidden Place.”What would have happened...If Lewis Carroll had proclaimed the reality of Alice’s Wonderland? What if he had gathered a following and launched an expedition? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Philip Battley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/154900/bk_acx0_154900_sample.mp3.
