Amongst White Clouds is a look at the lives of zealot students, gaunt and wise teachers ascetics living in isolated hermitages dotting the peaks and valleys of China Zhongnan Sierra. The Zhongnan Mountains have been home to inmates from the time of the Yellow Emperor, some five thousand years ago.

Many of China’s most realized Buddhist masters attained enlightenment in this broad! And now? It is generally believed that this tradition was almost wiped out by the meanders of history. White clouds shows that this is not the case.

One of the very few foreigners who have lived and studied with these hidden sages, Burger reveals their tradition, their wisdom, and the difficulties and joys of everyday life.
