This book is a self-narrated story of one of the world's most supreme religious leaders. It covers an era of eventful decades in Tibet's geopolitical situation along with his own struggles against the chaos that was prevalent everywhere in his country. Dalai Lama describes the story from his early days in the late 1930s to that unforgettable event of his exile to India in 1969. This memoir has its importance not only in depicting the story of Tibet and his relation to it, but also delves deeper into his own psyche in dealing with international aspects as one of the world's foremost leaders. Although he speaks about the sensitive issues like relationship with China with utmost honesty, he maintains a diplomatic tone with hope for a greater good. This autobiographical work of a great leader tries to present the unstable political nation, Tibet, to the whole world, in terms of its timeless culture, religion and people.
