CAVE IN THE SNOW Tenzin Palmo's Quest for Enlightenment

by | Read by Georgina Sutton, Vicki Mackenzie, Tenzin Palmo

Philosophy & Religion • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Narrator Georgina Sutton begins this story of Tenzin Palmo's journey into Tibetan Buddhism in a matter-of-fact tone compatible with the author's journalistic style. Palmo (née Diane Perry) finds a path that takes her from London's East End to India--and, eventually, to living in a cave and mediating for 12 years. Her story is filled with humor, faith, and insight. As we learn about her motivations, feelings, and teachings, Sutton infuses her portrayal of Palmo with empathy. A chapter on Buddhism in the U.S. and another on the role of the retreat in Buddhism add a less biographical slant. Sutton's narration adds new and welcome dimensions to Palmo's story, which is both down-to-earth and transformational. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
