Pasang Yonten Arya T. Sherpa’s autobiography

I was born in 1955, in a small village in Kyirong, Tibet – near the border of Nepal – in a family called Arya. There are today very few remaining families from the ancient Arya lineage who live in Tibet, Nepal and India. My ancestors were descendants of a very renowned tantric practitioner family of the 8th century in Tibet, and one of them was famous Khulungpa Yonten Gyatsho, the master of Yogi Milarepa for tantric storm magic.
