The Dalai Lama : a biography by Claude B Levenson( Book )

32 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Claude Levenson's search for Tenzin Gyatso, the present Dalai Lama, took her across the Himalayas, from Lhasa to his headquarters-in-exile in Dharamsala. At Dharamsala, hours of personal interviews revealed the story of his prodigious life, of how a lively child came to be recognised as the fourteenth reincarnation of the Buddha of Infinite Compassion. The book offers a vivid portrayal of an important civilization based on a sophisticated Buddhist tradition which faces extinction in Tibet. It covers the Dalai Lama's political programme of the Middle Ways which allows for a limited autonomy for Tibet. The preface brings the story up to the present day, focusing on the increase in human rights abuses in Tibet. -- Back cover
Symbols of Tibetan Buddhism by Claude B Levenson( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy or religion, way of life or way of being, Buddhism never ceases to intrigue. Its multiple facets bear witness to the diversity of its paths, and its innumerable aspects can disorient the newcomer. The essence however remains, a deep root common to all those searching for knowledge: a man, anchored in a moment of history, awakened to affirm that it is within the power of everyone to attain wisdom. Metamorphosis is not sudden, cannot happen from one day to the next; it demands reflection and time, the reading of many symbols. The renewed interest that Buddhism has enjoyed over the past years - led by its spiritual and temporal guide, the Dalai Lama - has made it possible to approach the meaning and origins of this teaching more fully. --Publishers website

La Chine envahit le Tibet : 1949-1959 by Claude B Levenson( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in French and Italian and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le point de vue de l'éditeur. 1949 : peu après la prise du pouvoir par Mao, ordre est donné à l'armée chinoise de "libérer le Tibet". La nouvelle est accueillie avec incrédulité par les chancelleries étrangères, avec indifférence par l'opinion publique mondiale peu au fait des réalités et des rivalités au coeur de la haute Asie. Il faut atttendre 1959 et la révolte antichinoise puis le départ du Dalaï-Lama en exil pour éveiller un intérêt qui retombe rapidement. Pourtant, au fil des ans, la question tibétaine ne cesse d'être ponctuée par des troubles récurrents qui la mettent sur le devant de l'actualité. Pour permettre au lecteur de comprendre les enjeux d'un drame soumis aux aléas des intérêts idéologiques et commerciaux, il revient aujourd'hui à l'historien de démêler la part de méconnaissance et la part de propagande. Car bien plus qu'une crise politique régionale et internationale, il s'agit là de la destruction programmée d'une civilisation, dont Claude Levenson donne les clefs

Le bouddhisme by Claude B Levenson( )

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En quoi la quête de vérité, ou de connaissance, d'un homme ayant vécu il y a 25 siècles, dans un contexte fort différent du nôtre, peut-elle concerner les hommes d'aujourd'hui? Parce que le bouddhisme est à la fois une philosophie, une religion, un art de vivre, une manière d'appréhender le monde, et bien plus encore, il tend son propre miroir à nos sociétés. À partir de la vie de celui qui s'"éveilla", Bouddha, cet ouvrage nous invite à emprunter les chemins qui se rejoignent sur l'Octuple sentier de la doctrine originelle et dessine l'histoire et la géographie du bouddhisme. Connaissance, sagesse, tolérance, droiture, persévérance, réflexion et beauté émaillent cette quête de vérité que chacun peut choisir de mener
