Buddhism in Russia : the story of Agvan Dorzhiev, Lhasa's emissary to the tzar by John Snelling ( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawing on material from previously unpublished sources, including KGB papers, this exciting story of political and religious intrigue recounts the extraordinary life of the lama Agvan Dorzhiev, adviser to Tubten Gyatso, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama, and follows the story of Buddhism in Russia up to the present time. At the end of the last century, Tibet was caught up in a super-power struggle, with the British and Russians making territorial incursions. The Dalai Lama called upon Dorzhiev, his childhood tutor, to be his emissary to the outside world. His story unfolds against a background of great historical and political change - the Young husband expedition to Tibet; the Russian Revolution; the Stalinist pogroms; the invasion of Tibet; and the recent collapse of Communism. A man of great vision and political skill, Dorzhiev was instrumental in establishing Buddhism in Russia and in the building of the temple of St. Petersburg, the first in the West."--Publisher's description

"Alan Watts became famous as a guru of the San Francisco counter-culture of the 1960s. Through his highly influential books, lectures and broadcasts, he was a pioneer in the introduction of Eastern Wisdom to Westerners. He played a crucial part in the movement towards New Age holistic consciousness, and showed thousands of people new ways of seeing themselves and the world around them. This collection of Alan Watts' writings between 1934 and 1956 includes rare material from British and American journals, many of which no longer exist. Covering a wide range of subjects - Zen, Jung, Krishnamurti, G.K. Chesterton, Lao-tzu, Buddha, Krishna - this book offers a fascinating insight into the spiritual development of one of the most significant and controversial spiritual teachers of our time."--Publisher's description
