Lobsang Rampa was a buddhist monk and a medical Doctor, who was born in Tibet. After many tribulations and much travelling he eventually settled in Canada near the end of his life and so experienced life in both the east and the west. Dr. Rampa was a revolutionary of his time, one of the first of the Eastern teachers to bring buddhism and metaphysics to the West in a popular fashion. He wrote many books about spiritual matters, beginning with "The Third Eye". Lobsang Rampa teaches us the timeless universal truths, pointing us along the spiritual path. Dr. Rampa's books also discuss the state of humanity's progress and he shows us how we can be a positive force for good, thus improving ourselves and helping our fellow humans and all sentient beings.
Lobsang Rampa went on to write another 18 books containing a mixture of religious and occult material. One of the books, Living With The Lama, was described as being dictated to Rampa by his pet Siamese cat, Mrs Fifi Greywhiskers. Faced with repeated accusations from the British press that he was a charlatan and a con artist, Rampa went to live in Canada in the 1960s. He and his wife, San Ra'ab, became Canadian citizens in 1973, along with Sheelagh Rouse (Buttercup) who was his secretary and regarded by Rampa as his adopted daughter. Lobsang Rampa died in Calgary on 25 January 1981.
