About Book:

Wings of the White Crane is unquestionably the most unusual and sensational of all the books by or about Tibetan Buddhists yet to appear in English. Westerners previously baffled by the Tibetan mind will have no difficulty in finding sympathy with the sixth Dalai Lama, a spiritual "pope" to the Tibetan Buddhists of his time, who poured o0ut his very human heart into these simple, eloquent, often erotic songs of lovers lost and found, and of his inner conflicts as a monk. Most older Tibetans know all these fifty-three poems by memory since all humans everywhere know what the strife of love can bring.
