Mantaras and Misdemeanours
Vanessa Walker went to the home of the Dalai Lama to explore her religion through the eyes of its people. She wasn't there looking for love, let alone a husband, and she certainly didn't plan on having a relationship with a disrobed Tibetan monk and becoming pregnant.. But karma quite often works in strange ways ...Nestled in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, McLeod Ganj is a place of quiet beauty and surprising violence. It is a place where a government consults an ancient oracle. McLeod Ganj is also a place where monks wear the latest Nike trainers, where the Dalai Lama's brother struggles with his own inner demons.I found this book to be funny, and poignant, Mantras and Misdemeanors is a wonderful book, I enjoyed it so much. I loved the way her relationship with Choying developed and grew into love.It is Vanessa's story of a journey, a journey of the heart, and also into the heart of Buddhism. And for that I say "thoo jaychay"
