A Journey in Ladakh book. Harvey concludes his book with some preachy, albeit heartfelt, passages on the ways in which Buddhism can be adapted in the West. As a whole, though, his writing throughout the book is moving, heartfelt, and honest. He uses his talents as a poet to draw evocative pictures of the landscape and the people of Ladakh.

A Journey in Ladakh: Enco. has been added to your Cart. This is a book that is true to its title. The author does indeed experience encounters with Buddhism during his time in Ladakh and those encounters provide some profound insights into the nature of mankind and our journey here on our planet. My only quibble with the book is that I would have preferred more of the author's Buddhist encounters and less of his reflections on the topography of Ladakh. But this is a book I highly recommend.

Educated at Oxford University, he became the youngest Fellow of All Soul's College in its history. For the last 20 years he has travelled widely, living in India, London, Paris, New York and San Francisco - teaching at university level and writing.

Andrew Harvey (born 1952) is a British author, religious scholar and teacher of mystic traditions, known primarily for his popular nonfiction books on spiritual or mystical themes, beginning with his 1983 A Journey in Ladakh.

Far in the north of India are the mountains of Ladakh. Cut off by snow for six months of the year, Ladakh is where the purest form of Tibetan Buddhism is practiced, with meditations that date back to 300 years before the birth of Christ. Harvey traveled the arduous road to Ladakh in search of the old Tibetan traditions. This is his story.

I enjoyed the book. Andrew Harvey keeps the reader's attention by not jamming it with too much detailed information.

By expressing his feeling regarding the light, the space, the majesty of the mountains, I was able to absorb what he was conveying and it was as if I were there...

This is the most well-written book I have ever read. He not only captured my attention so much that I stayed up nights losing sleep to finish the book.; but he is a master at subtly weaving in information about Buddhism so that you are informed while being entertained. The visual descriptions were so vivid that I wanted to experience what he experienced and I am planning a pilgrimage to Ladakh this year. I later saw the author interviewed on Gaiam TV and greatly respect him as a spiritual teacher and spiritual activist to all seekers of any faith or belief and have bought another of his books.

This book is more about the author's spiritual growth than a description of the flora and fauna of Ladakh. It only gives a cursory description of the culture but it is a great foundation for Buddhist studies.
Cemav
very satisfied
Konetav
The story drags endlessly but appears to be from the heart.
Thiama
