Eastern Tibet, or Kham, is a place of rugged ranges and torrential rivers, home to the fierce Khampa rebels who tried for a decade to defeat China’s army and win independence for Tibet. Pamela Logan is an inveterate traveler who fell in love with Kham and was deeply affected by the poverty she saw there. With the help of many friends, she started a nonprofit to do the impossible: bring development and humanitarian assistance to Tibetans under Chinese rule.
"Compassion Mandala is a highly recommended, inspirational survey of how first one woman, then a group of committed individuals, made progress against overwhelming odds in a nation crushed by poverty and oppression. Compassion Mandala exposes Tibetan culture and peoples in a way few that other books achieve." [D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer]
