Sieben Jahre in TibetBy Heinrich HarrerThis edition was published in 1956 in the German languageThe book is a travellers recount of adventures based on diaries kept throughout these yearsReading in the beginning felt like a continuation of Sven Hedin s My Life as an Explorer Hedin had extensively travelled the same parts of the world at the end of the 19th centuryThis is my second reading of Seven Years in Tibet the first one was in the 60ies shortly after its first publicationIn those years my liking of this book went entirely to the adventures of the heroesHarrer and many other German Austrian and Italian travellers happened to be caught up shortly after the end of WWII in a British concentration camp in India near BombayHarrer an experienced mountaineer had come to these parts of the world to climb the Himalaya and could not imagine staying a prisoner for longHe and some close friends soon planned to escape They failed the first time but succeeded the second time A daring escape as the English would call it Tibet was their aim and in this direction they hurriedly walked and hiked as fast as they couldHarrer and his friend Peter Aufschneiter had some poor road maps and a little money to buy food on the road but money soon ran out so they started selling what they could spare their watch and first aid things and whateverUnlike Sven Hedin Heinrich and Peter had no arms for hunting or to defend themselves against wild beasts like bears and coyotes nor fight off any robbers of whom they met several and escaped unharmed by a miracleThey had no warm clothing and no shoes that could withstand hundreds of miles of walking in gravel ice and snowAt their first encounters with local populations and minor officials they encountered enmity and stiff opposition against their projectFood could not be bought except for a high price if at allWhen finally reaching Lhasa in January 1946 against all the odds they were in a state of poor refugees unwashed and unshaved starved for many days blisters on their feet barefoot and their clothing in shredsAt the first house they entered fell to the ground and begged for food and shelter The two men had successfully used a disguise as Indian traders to pass controls by officials on the roadThe second part of the story is how they got introduced and accepted in Lhasa by the population but importantly by the monks and the Lamas and primarilyby the Dalai Lama the God in Person and King of the countryTibet was ruled for hundreds of years and still was at the time of Harrer s reporting by a government of Buddhist Religious MonarchyTens of thousands of monks divided of several large monasteries ruled the country with an iron fist by legislation purely based on religious beliefs According to the Buddhist religion the population had been convinced to believe in reincarnation to a new body after deathMoreover that new body could be any human or animal from the tiniest insect to a goat or an elephantThe Tibetan government did not have to raise taxes the population gave their last penny to the Lamas at their monasteries to guarantee them a happy afterlifeThere were no schools other than monastery schools no hospitals no roads no drainage system in the towns no running water nor any basic sanitary installations One only generator supplied electricity to the Palast printing shop to print religious booksTibet is a potentially wealthy country in mineral resources and vast agricultural potentials if irrigated and managed However that potential needs to be modernised in order to be useful to the countryAll influence from the outside world was restricted to the minimum and visits of foreigners forbiddenSo the Buddhist monks hoped to remain in power foreverHowever it is well known to historians that a country in such a weak position will inevitably attract the envy of a powerful neighbourSo it did China started invading Tibet in 1950 The Dalai Lama at first fled to the south but then returned to Lhasa under the control of ChinaPeter Aufschneiter stayed in Tibet for another year and later went to Nepal to further adventuresHeinrich Harrer our author having lost his reason to remain there left Tibet towards India in April 1951
