    I enjoyed the tapestry of intrigue, spirituality, human suffering and peace woven in this book.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This book is as close to life-changing as one can get through the written word.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The book flows well, is beautifully written, and at times reads more like a fast-paced spy novel than a memoir.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Part spiritual biography, part history, part human rights discussion, in the shadow of the buddha is matteo pistono's eloquent offering documenting not only the history of a tibetan spiritual master, but also his own spiritual journey during which he came to bear witness to the atrocities committed by the chinese government against the people and culture of tibet.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Before long he found himself documenting and smuggling evidence of human rights abuses out of china then sharing what he learned with anyone who would listen.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    He learns from ming--a policewoman caught in her own half-chinese, half-tibetan parentage her own ambiguous position in power--of the conviction quota police must achieve monthly, and how a case is closed by torture or murder.

    While this ability left me wondering, the slight elision in parts of his narrative is understandable.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The protection of the xiii dalai lama by the tibetan mystic terton sogyal unfolds on a spiritual plane that would put the us secret service to shame.
