picture of the Himalayas is in memory of Tom Johanson and
his journey to Tibet.
In his late years Tom Johanson
became more and more interested in Tibetan Buddhism. He became friend with the
Dalai Lama and traveled to Tibet itself, where he met the High Lama in Lhasa and
spoke with him about the essence of Buddhist philosophy. He had a number
of visions of an earlier incarnation of the Dalai Lama, some hundred years
ago and could describe him.
Tom not only remembered that he
himself had lived in the Himalayas in another life, most likely in Tibet.
He also saw in Tibetan Buddhism the ancient source of his own, freedom and
self-evolution-based spiritual philosophy.
His last book has not been
finished. It was about the essence of Buddhist teachings for a modern Western
life and understanding.
