About the Author
MAYANK CHHAYA has been a journalist for the past twenty-five years and has reported extensively on India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and now the United States. He is a widely read commentator on South Asian affairs for the New Delhi-based Indo-Asian News Service and also runs www.dailysub.com, a news and current affairs site. He is based in Chicago and divides his time between Washington, D.C., and New York.
"In examining the life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama as an individual in the context of his different roles as man, monk, and mystic, Mayank Chhaya has succeeded in presenting an engaging portrait of one of the world's great leaders." --Desmond Tutu
"This is an authorized biography by an Indian journalist who did his research homework and had access to the Dalai Lama. The author also brings a familiarity with Asian politics, an essential frame of reference for understanding the complex situation of the Tibetan spiritual and political leader who has spent close to fifty years in exile in India. The end product is balanced--neither debunking nor hagiographic, but taking a Buddhist-style Middle Way toward its subject, even though the author is not himself a Buddhist. Particularly fascinating and demystifying is the account of the Dalai Lama's earliest years." --"Publishers Weekly"
