So i could only read it a few pages at a time. So, finally went to Mc Millian's Library and read the book. Finally, Oneday I took the courage and mentioned it to my Dad, Who wasted no time in buying the complete collection. The writer claimed to be a reincarnation of a Tibetian lama, Lobsang Rampa. The Third Eye introduced the strict discipline of the lama in his route to obtaining the ability to see with psychic power.
Story, said to be true , covers subjects such as the Astral Travelling, human Aura, Meditation, Control of the Mind in overcoming pain, the Potala and what's underneath it, life in Tibet, search for reincarnated Lama when the chief died I read all of my Dad's collection.

This books takes you to a world that is so foreign to our way of thinking. I highly recommend it! Mar 15, Roger Norman rated it it was amazing. The book was first published in and I remember it being a favourite during the 60s occultist wave. It always carried a kind of question mark because of the accusations that it was a hoax, which the publishers discussed in their foreword at that time. The writer was apparently an Englishman Cyril Henry Hoskins who had never been to Tibet and knew nothing about the place or its beliefs.
He claimed to have been 'taken over' mind and soul by the Tibetan Lama, Tuesday Lobsang Rampa, who was th The book was first published in and I remember it being a favourite during the 60s occultist wave.
He claimed to have been 'taken over' mind and soul by the Tibetan Lama, Tuesday Lobsang Rampa, who was the real author. Hoax or not, it is a marvellous book, and seems perfectly authentic to the untutored. It takes a while to get going, and the early childhood chapters have their share of childish cliches, but if you can go along with these, there are treasures in store.
Admirers of Scorsese's film 'Kundun' may like it or, as in my case, love it. Feb 19, Steve rated it it was amazing. I loved this book more than I know. I read it and reread it at times when I'm feeling low or depressed. It's more or less a coming of age novel about a young boy of high class thrown out of his house by his stern father to become a monk.
He is initiated into the higher order and taught the most secretive occult powers of tibet. I wish I could find the book right now. I don't think my review is any good. Read the book. There's a lot of spirituality and aura perception as well as astral traveling. Oct 01, Febry rated it liked it Recommends it for: everyone.
Well, this writer is a fraud, he said that this book is his biography, in this book he said that he is a Tibetian monk, knew Dalai Lama very well, etc But actually he is not There have been an "international court" that state this man as a fraud. But still as a fictional Note: For his stroy i give him 5 star, but because of his lie i give him 3 star.
Jun 17, Steven Phelps rated it liked it. Trepanation drilling into the skull is real, as are a few of the other practices outlined by "T. Lobsang Rampa" not his real name , but the vast majority of the work is fiction. Rampa was part of a publishing bandwagon that sought to capitalize on the growing interest in medition, buddhism, reincarnation, and the new age movement in general. For years, nobody knew this was a hoax - it's a fun read, but if you're looking for more accurate information about mediation, seek elsewhere.
Jan 14, Saloni Mehra rated it liked it. One thing that can be said for sure about this book is that it offers a fascinating look into the Tibetan philosophy and religion through the eyes of the author.
