Published in 1966, “The Way of the White Clouds” was written by Lama Anagarika Govinda, a German wisdom seeker. In his book, Lama Govinda documents his pilgrimage through the remotest parts of Tibet 1930s and 40s, taking photographs and creating drawings. He beautifully recounts the Tibetan scenery and describes local communities as they had existed for hundreds of years. With a travel, adventure dialogue, Lama Govinda also contemplates some of life’s greatest questions, discussing, in a very enlightened way, some very complex Tibetan Buddhist practices. Lama Anagarika Govinda met many teachers and finally found his Guru Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

When Lama Govinda met Domo Geshe Rinpoche, the lightest touch of Guru’s hands on his head, sent a stream of bliss through his whole being. Simply to be in His presence, was enough to solve all problems, just as darkness disappears in the presence of light. The Guru told him: “If you wish me to be your Guru, do not look upon my person as the Guru, because every human personality has its shortcomings, and so long as we are engaged in observing the imperfections of others, we deprive ourselves of the opportunities of learning from them.”
