Item description for The Hill of Fire (Asian portraits) by Monica Bose, Lieutenant de la Touche, Jean Vollant Des Verquains, Michael Smithies, Michael Smithies, Ian Morson, Arthur Nersesian & Scott Silsby...
This is an account of a courageous woman's search for truth carried to the very heart of Buddhism and Hinduism. Suzanne Alexandra Curtil, a doctor, dancer and diviner, left her native France in 1925 for India. There she became a Buddhist priestess, the first woman ever to enter the Southern Buddhist or Theravada religious order in 800 years. On a mission to the Himalayas, she met and was instructed by the renowned Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Tromo Geshe Rinpoche. In 1936 she went to visit Sri Ramana Maharshi who dwelt on Arunachala, known as the Hill of Fire, in Tiruvannamalai, southern India. She remained many years in Tiruvannamalai to practise the great seer's teachings. She also engaged in selfless medical practice in the town and surrounding villages. This book should be of interest to all those who seek the core reality and to live the peace and reconciliation that such knowledge brings.
