Mystics and magicians of Tibet
Author: Alexandra David Neel
“When I set out to visit Tibet, it was not, as many may believe, for the purpose of seeing bizarre phenomena there. I proposed to study on the spot a particular deformation of the Buddhist doctrine in its mixture in the Shamanism of the Peuns: lamaism. It was 'by chance' that in the course of my wanderings through Tibet, I witnessed the occurrence of extraordinary events. ideas that they had about them. " Perhaps no book has contributed like this to give Westerners a direct knowledge of Tibet, of the prodigious events that take place there and of the extraordinary psychic power of its magicians and mystics. It is translated into all European languages and is cited as a classic by all Orientalists.
