Immortality and Reincarnation
By

Rating
In Immortality And Reincarnation, the author examines Taoist, Tibetan, and Hindu concepts concerning life after death. This question of what occurs to the individual personality after death is fundamental to the human experience. Contrary to Western belief, which sees the human being as composed of a mortal body and an immortal soul, many Easterners believe on the immortality of both the body and the soul. Famed traveller and mystic, Alexandra David-Neel (1868-1969), was the first Western woman to see the forbidden city of Lhasa, Tibet and to interview the 13th Dalai Lama. She has gained first hand knowledge of Easterners' beliefs on this subject of immortality, and has experience of the practices they engendered. In Immortality And Reincarnation, she ties together all her knowledge and experiences for a unique look at reincarnation and eternal life in a region untouched by the modern world.

About the Author

Alexandra David-Neel led one of the most fascinating lives of this century. When she died at the age of 101 she had written over thirty books on Buddhism and on her adventures in Asia. The first woman to interview the thirteenth Dalai Lama, she spent much time in Tibet while it was still closed to foreigners, and learned from personal experience the occult practices and doctrines that characterize Tibetan Buddhism. In addition to Immortality and Reincarnation she is the author of Magic and Mystery in Tibet, My Journey to Lhasa, and Secret Oral Teachings in Tibetan Buddhist Sects.
