Geshe Gedun Lodroe (1924-1979) entered Debung Monastic University near Lhasa at the age of nine as a novice monk. He gained the degree of geshe in 1961 in exile in India as the first among three scholars who were awarded the number one ranking in the highest class. A scholar of prodigious intellect, he was famed for his wide learning and ability in debate. In 1967, the Dalai Lama sent him to teach at the University of Hamburg, where he learned to speak German fluently and became a tenured member of the faculty. He served as Visiting Professor at the University of Virginia in 1979.
"What the Geshe has left to us is . . . a masterly and lucid account of an Indo-Tibetan worldview of spiritual development . . . meticulously edited and translated. No advanced student and scholar working on related areas can afford to overlook this publication. . . . A book of great merit."--Tibet Journal "This book vividly presents an intimate and detailed picture of the intricacies of meditation, such that the reader is drawn into a Tibetan world-view of spiritual transformation."--Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies
