Read full description of the books:
She had the drive.
Alex studied Buddhism at the Sorbonne.
Then she headed towards Lassa, Tibet. She had great questions to answer to; she was, indeed, a great questioner; she gave also great answers while living. Yet, there are some instances of her thought I still don’t understand.
She spent 14 years in Tibet (in fact, the 1st western woman to do so) and had a great work of translating, from the Sanskrit, the original texts.
A soprano voice, Alex marveled men, and scholars. She met with Indian sages and discussed with them. She liked philosophizing (“her nature”).
In 1911 she was stationed in Pondicherry and she was affirming: “Be yourself your own light”--very Buddhistic.
She met with Aurobindo who told her about the 3rd beatitude: it’s the “renunciation of ambitions,…desire”.
In another instance she said: “Ni dieu, ni maitre” :(no need for) neither God, nor a master, like my father exiled in Brussels,... with Victor Hugo.
“Je suis anarchiste”. I am an anarchist.
But her driving-force, was this magnus question: the 3rd beatitude of the Bhagavad Gita (the way of the yoga); she questioned several people about it. She wanted the Nirvana.
She wrote about the 3rd beatitude: common to Buddhists of the north and Hindus (Vedanta).
In Sikkim (1912) she met with the XIII Dalai Lama (China had invaded Tibet). He offered her several gifts; one of great import: Milarepa’s poetry, Alex wanted so much to translate.
She arrived to Lassa in 1924.
-How come she said “the Dharma theory is socialist and feminist”?
-Why some people (philosopher Catherine Clément) say she was an atheist?
Later in life, already 100 years old, she was asked about Yoga. She replied: it’s an "intellectual... philosophy",... but also the “suppression of cogitation”*.
-Therefore, no need for philosophy?
“Je pense comme le Buddha”
I think like the Buddha.
