    Overview

    Summary
    "My story is not a glamorous one of high lamas and exotic ritual, but of how a simple monk succeeded in surviving the destructive forces of a totalitarian ideology". These are the words of Palden Gyatso, whose story is an unforgettable journey into the heart of Tibet and an enduring testimony to the human need for freedom.
