About this item
Paperback. Spine heavily creased.
At the age of 16 Dennis Lingwood sensed that he was - and always had been - a Buddhist. This realization was to act as the motive force behind a life in which Lingwood, who took the name Sangharakshita, has played a major part in the introduction of Buddhism to the West. In this first volume of memoirs he traces his development from a childhood dominated by illness and books to homeless wandering and ordination as a Buddhist monk. It takes readers from the streets of wartime London to the dusty villages, ashrams and mountain caves of India.
