Return to Ladakh

Return To Ladakh

Completion date: 31st March 2017

This is the story of author Andrew Harvey’s return to Ladakh to meet the reincarnation of the revered Buddhist Master, His Eminence Drukpa Thuksey Rinpoche who was his teacher in his last life and who is now 29, living again and in charge of the state of Ladakh which he governs courageously using Buddhist principles.

Approaching Ladakh is a major journey. At 10,000ft elevation it is akin to entering the timeless, magical world of a lost horizon. Within its gorgeous landscapes one enters the last place on earth where the ancient world of Tibetan Buddhism still exists in all its magnificence – untouched for nearly 2,000 years.
