SKU BK3

In 1938 a two year old boy was recognized through a traditional process of discovery as being the reincarnation of all previous Dalai Lamas, the spiritual ruler of Tibet. Taken away from his parents, he was brought up in Lhasa according to a monastic regimen of rigorous austerity and in almost total isolation. Aged seven he was enthroned in the 1000 room Potala Palace as the supreme spiritual leader of a nation the size of western Europe, witha population of six million. And at fifteen, he became head of state.

With Tibet under threat from the newly Communist Chinese, there followed a traumatic decade during which he became the confidant of both Chairman Mao and Jawarharlal Nehru as he tried to maintain autonomy for his people. Then, in 1959, he was finally forced into exile-followed by over 100000 destitute refugees. Since that time, in exile in the Himalayan village of Dharmasala, he has devoted himself to the plight of his people and to promoting world peace through an unwavering policy of non-violence.

Here, in his own words, he describes what it was like to grow up revered as a deity among his people, reveals his innermost feelings about his role, and discusses the mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism. He tells of secret deals struck with the CIA as Tibet continued to struggle for independence, talks freely of the many world leaders he has known, and discusses the West's malaise from the standpoint of a spiritual and temporal figure of world renown.

DHL Receiver’s Guide to Duties and Taxes, Goods Purchased Online for Personal Use
You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something purchased online because:

Duties and taxes are most typically not included in the price of the goods you purchase online, and might not be included in the overall shipping costs you pay to the online retailer.
When purchasing goods online, some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in, therefore are subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders.
When goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate.
To ensure the DHL courier can deliver your goods in shortest possible time after entering your country or customs union, DHL pays the customs authority on your behalf for any duties and taxes that are due on the goods.
Once the duties and taxes are fully repaid to DHL the goods will be delivered to you What is payable, if anything, depends on where the goods are sent from, the type of goods, their transactional value and the weight of the package
