Kundun Summary


Kundun: Biography of the Family of the Dalai Lama by Mary Craig

The story of how a four year old Tibetan farmer's boy was chosen by divination to become the 14th Dalai Lama is a fascinating one, but less known is the story of his family, and their destiny. This ordinary peasant family had to cope with the fame and greatness thrust upon them, only to be in flight a decade later from the Chinese army of "liberation". Supplemented by personal interviews with the Dalai Lama and his family, this text is a tale of a people wrenched from their land by force and of their fight for survival.

Kundun Reviews


'Mary Craig's intelligent and sensitive story ... suggests in how extraordinary a way this deeply religious and peaceful people on the roof of the world have become a parable for the end of the twentieth century ....This gripping book tells one of the most painful and dramatic stories of history.' The Tablet 'Mary Craig's book offers both a vivid, human-scale view of a decisive chapter in the Tibetan story and a poignant sense of how it feels for individuals to be marginalized in a history it once seemed they were destined to make.' The Scotsman
