Little Lhasa: Reflections on Transnational Tibet

Tsering Namgyal (Author)

Ever since they anchored on foreign shores, exiled Tibetans, under the guidance of the His Holiness the Dalai Lama, have contributed greatly to global culture, especially in the field of spirituality. Although they have had much less success in the realm of politics, their cause for freedom remains very much alive.

Driven out of their hauntingly beautiful homeland, Tibetans have tried to preserve their glorious cultural and religious heritage in exile. However, as this legacy and responsibility is being passed on to a new generation, it has given birth to a new and distinctive Tibetan culture.

In these ten essays Tsering Namgyal reflects, with curiosity and compassion, on this "in-between world" in which he grew up and which is now transforming at a rapid pace. He combines his own experience of growing up among the Tibetan communities of India, his extensive travels, and many interviews, to explain to himself and to others why his "virtual home" is so unique and intriguing. And why, despite the poignancy of dislocation, the stories from exiled Tibet have a strange ability to touch and to inspire.
