Back Over The Mountains • A Journey To The Buddha Within

Back Over the Mountains is a true story of unexpected friendship between a Buddhist monk seeking to establish himself far from his homeland, and a writer clinging to the remnants of fading borderland culture.

When the author, Jane Marshall, unexpectedly meets exiled Tibetan Buddhist monk Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe, she begins a journey that not only leads her to remote corners of the Himalayas, but into the realm of memory, loss, and acceptance.

From the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet to the secret valley of Tsum, Nepal, Marshall follows in the footsteps of her teacher before finding the courage to seek out her own spiritual path.

Marshall has created a beautiful narrative with deep philosophical insights hidden in every nook and corner of every sentence. Mountain pebbles, people, wind, and longing are all carefully knitted together to form an inspirational memoir of her travels in search for inner peace. This book comes across as transparent, emotional, and enlightening. It is bound to resonate and act as a brightly lit pathway for the ever-searching, travelling soul.
