Book cover

The Superhuman Life of Gesar of Ling

Translated by Alexandra David-Neel and Lama Yongden

This little volume may have been surpassed by Robin Kornman's monumental translation of the Gesar epic (which we also published), but it's still pretty handy. It serves as a synopsis of the great epic-think of it as the Cliff's Notes version. It provides a great outline of the life and early adventures of the man who's sometimes referred to as the King Arthur of Tibet.
