Three Years in Tibet

Nature volume 82, pages 301302 (13 January 1910) | Download Citation



A NEW book on Tibet, offered to “the English-knowing public” by a Japanese priest who acted for a time as physician to the Grand Lama, raises our expectations of finding therein some fresh and interesting, views of Tibetan life as seen from the inside. For the author enjoyed the advantage of moving freely behind the scenes, in the palace and in the monastic temples, in intimate relations with the “Living Buddha,” and with many of the, notabilities of this Old-World State, at a time when it was pursuing the even tenour of its existence, undisturbed by war's alarms.
