During the time of the 13th Dalai Lama, Tuesday Lobsang Rampa, the son of a Lhasa aristocrat, begins his theological studies and is soon noticed for his acute abilities and prodigious skill. He enters his teenage and soon defeats large obstacles to become a crucial asset to the future of an independent Tibet. In an arcane ceremony, a third eye is drilled into his head and allows him to see human auras and people’s hidden drives. He serves as an aide in the Dalai Lama’s court and spies on the Lama’s visitors. He soon becomes a vital asset to the Dalai Lama and this story outlines the story of his rise.
