'Alakh Jamv Japa - Incarnation of the God of Learning. Spiritual and temporal lord over a vast territory in north-eastern Tibet, he appeared ageless as he sat there, like a graven image, suggesting the Wisdom of Time, a soul that had lived down through the ages in different bodies.' (p. 65); 'Through Forbidden Tibet' by Harrison Forman
