Editors Note Traces the experience of the Hatha Yoga pioneer, describing how in 1937 he became the third American to enter Tibet, his subsequent initiation into Tantric practice and his introduction of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy to America.
Annotation In the acclaimed 2010 biography THE GREAT OOM by Robert Love, readers got to know Pierre Bernard, credited with being one of the first Americans to introduce hatha yoga and tantric practices to the general public. This equally fascinating 2011 biography of Bernard's nephew Theos presents the story of yet another spiritual pioneer and world adventurer. The younger Bernard, raised in Tombstone, Arizona by a single mother, went on to become a respected anthropologist, only the third American to visit Lhasa, Tibet, where he was initiated into Tibetan Buddhism and tantric rites. He was entrusted with many scriptures that he brought back with him to the U.S., and went on to write several books about yoga, Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan language, and the Tantra, and to establish institutions to advance the study of yoga and Tibetan language. Author Douglas Veenhof tells Bernard's story with an eye for drama and intrigue, peppering his narrative with appearances by Charles Lindbergh and Lowell Thomas, but also respectfully acknowledging Bernard's contributions as a scholar.
