ˇ@Description BEYOND THE HOUSE OF THE FALSE LAMA chronicles the adventures of George Crane ˇV a wanderer, poet, romantic, and not-so-good student of Zen Buddhism who travels the globe in search of lifeˇ¦s purpose. In his previous book, the highly acclaimed Bones of the Master, Crane and his monk sidekick, Tsung Tsai, went to Inner Mongolia to find the grave of Tsung Tsaiˇ¦s teacher and build a shrine in his honor. The two were turned back by a sandstorm at the edge of the Gobi Desert, so Crane must now return alone to complete the task. A voyage of discovery and the testament of a free spirit, this is a story of people, places, and adventures, of myths and mysteries transmuted and transposed into poetry and prose. Both a travel memoir and a wild spiritual search, this book makes the quest for enlightenment more entertaining than it has ever been before.
