    • Synopsis
    • ”When I arrived in Delhi in October 1999, the opportunity that opened up before me was quite unexpected and one I had not even dared secretly hope for: I travelled to the Himalayan village of Kanam where Alexander Csoma de Kőrös had once lived and taught for many years, and where he put together his famous Tibetan-English dictionary and grammar.
      I did not hesitate for even a moment. Finally there was a glimmer of hope for me to understand what had kept Csoma in this indescribable place, and just what it was beyond his obsessive research and scientific pursuits; what personal motive he had that led him to spend years as a lonely pilgrim among these mountains.
      I humbly report that something is becoming clear to me and I would request that I’d be allowed to share that something with you all now.”
