Susan Murphy - Toppled World

A Political and Spiritual Trek through India, Tibet and Afghanistan, a Biography Book Talk & Signing

Susan Murphy never planned to write a book, but a chance meeting with Sudha Johorey and His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2005 led to nearly 12 years of research, interviewing, writing, editing, and countless trips to India. She will discuss and sign Toppled World: A Political and Spiritual Trek through India, Tibet and Afghanistan ($15.95 Bedazzled Ink Publishing).

It was Spring of 1959 and the Chinese occupation of Tibet was in full swing. Sudha Johorey worried about the state of affairs for her beloved Tibet, the souring relationship between India and China and her friend, HH The Dalai Lama, who was rumored to have left Lhasa for sanctuary in India. Thus begins the extraordinary journey of a young woman and her unlikely friendship with HH The Dalai Lama, her adventures as a diplomat's wife across India, Afghanistan, and the jungles of frontier states of her country and her unique and personal journey with the teachings of the Buddha.

Toppled World is a moving personal account of the life of Sudha Johorey and a rare glimpse into the events that shaped India in the early years of independence as well as her own spiritual philosophy, as recounted to her dear friend Susan Murphy through stories and memories.
