Description: Alexandra David-Néel. A small woman, who lived for more than a hundred years (1868-1969), she was in turns an anarchist, an opera singer, a journalist, a freemason, a feminist, a free thinker, a reporter and lover of the Orient, a writer, an explorer and a philosopher.

She dared to travel to the other side of the world at a time when very few women had the freedom to do so. Her journeys were as varied as her talents.

A spiritual journey as she chose Buddhism and discovered a passion for Hinduism, a personal journey, receiving instruction from a Tibetan Master in the far reaches of the Himalayas of the Upper Sikkim, and an arduous journey as she made her way along difficult routes in sometimes extreme conditions, from Nepal to Japan, from Korea to the interior of China, form India to the mysterious, and at that time forbidden, Tibet.

She was the first Western woman to enter Lhassa in 1924, after an incredible and secretive trek accompanied by a young citizen of Sikkim, Aphur Yongden, who became her adopted son in 1929. Beyond her writings and her exploits, Alexandra has left us a universal message of courage, of will, of righteousness and of wisdom.
