A Hundred Thousand White Stones

A Hundred Thousand White Stones is one young Tibetan woman's fearlessly told story of longing and change. Kunsang Dolma writes with unvarnished candor of the hardships she experienced as a girl in Tibet, violations as a refugee nun in India, and struggles as an immigrant and new mother in America. Yet even in tribulation, she finds levity and never descends to self-pity. We watch in wonder as her unlikely choices and remarkable persistence bring her into ever-widening circles, finding love and a family in the process, and finally bringing her back to her childhood home. A Hundred Thousand White Stones offers an honest assessment of what is gained in pursuing life in the developed world and what is lost.

About the Author

Born in 1980, Kunsang Dolma grew up in a remote village in the Tibetan borderlands. After becoming a nun, she escaped Tibet first to Nepal and then India. After giving up her nun's robes, she moved to the United States, where she now lives with her American husband and two daughters.


"Refreshingly honest and brave, this book leaves us looking at our lives with completely new eyes."--Jaimal Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha "Intimate, unpretentious, and insightful, this is a thoroughly contemporary story, told with clarity, about Tibetan pasts, presents, and futures."--Sienna Craig, author of Horses Like Lightning "Especially now, when Tibetans are sacrificing their lives for their collective story to be heard, it is important that Kunsang Dolma so honestly shares her personal story. This ordinary Tibetan's extraordinary journey opens our hearts wider with each step in her shoes."--Kathleen Willis Morton, author of The Blue Poppy and The Mustard Seed "Especially now, when Tibetans in Tibet are sacrificing their lives for their collective story to be heard, it is important and brave that Kunsang Dolma so honestly shares her personal story, without self-pity, including her harrowing escape from Tibet as a young nun. With a heart unvanquished she endures almost unfathomable hardship to find moments of divine compassion in every drop of soup, blessed karmic ripening in a pack of wild horses, and gifts of a bodhisattva walking in a fellow traveler's shoes. This ordinary Tibetan's extraordinary journey can only open our hearts wider with each step in her shoes over the Himalayas to India, and beyond."--Kathleen Willis-Morton, author of "The Blue Poppy and the Mustard Seed"
