This work was conceived and its script written by William Meyers, keeping a promise made to the Dalai Lama in 1993. It has been expanded and refined with the editorial guidance and oratorical inspiration of Robert Thurman; backed by the financial and organizational support of Tibet House US; joined in creative collaboration by master of both traditional and modern Tibetan art Rabkar Wangchuk; and completed in book form with the technical assistance and production coordination of digital artist Michael Burbank.
