This is a stunning book! Exciting & infuriating; transformational & down-to-earth. For the first time my Western mind has been able to grasp the concept of reincarnation.
A superb gift for anyone who has ever contemplated a life of meditation & devotion; for anyone who thinks religion has no humor. This book will have your heart laughing & your spirit bursting open like a flower in sunshine. For my full review please see [my website]
What is so magic about the whole thing is how it is being ordinary. This is why the style of writing is a little bit overdone, it seems, for me. Though I must admit the background provided sufficient glimpse into the always mystic Tibetan Buddhism but somehow, sometimes that backed up research backfired in all its simplicity. The 'journalistic' hook of the author might work very WELL at the beginning, toward the end it finds to repeat itself over and over again like chunk of bold letters all lose its emphasis. Thank you so much Tenzin and the effort of Vickie which deserved much admiration. I would buy more copies to pass on and I am so happy that a proportion of royalties of the sale of the book would go toward the dhamma which in essential, more than just one's 'dream comes true'.

A potentially interesting and inspiring story, masacred by a journalist. While Ms. Mackenzie sees, she has a problem to smell, hear and feel. Read morePublished on Dec 28 2000 by Carl Sinclair
