Danzan Ravjaa is perhaps Mongolia's most beloved saint. As a boy, he was only saved from Manchu execution by the intervention of the young Ninth Dalai Lama. He went on to become one of the greatest mystics and creative geniuses of his time. This book takes the reader on a journey through Mongolian history, Tibetan Buddhism and the traditions of nomadic culture to investigate the man and the many legends that surround him.
