Sarita Armstrong


Tibetan Tapestry - Ebook


This is a heartfelt account of life amongst Tibetan refugees. Based on letters posted home from India in 1964, it is a true and personal record of the early days when Tibetans had fled their homeland and settled in the Himalayas. At eighteen, with an inherent grasp of Buddhism, Sarita (Cherry) acted as assistant to Freda Bedi at her most unusual school for incarnate lamas. Expressed with humour and sensitivity the narrative also covers time spent visiting a road working camp, taking a trip with a future film star to the Taj Mahal, a pilgrimage to Bodh Gaya, plus much more.
