In 1926 he printed OM The Secret of Ahbor Valley
... perhaps his biggest novel with its metaphysical concept.
I identified it in 1965 at the exact same time I had discovered that fantastic e-book about King Tut: Tutankhamen, Life of a Pharaoh
, by Christiane Desroches-Noblecourt, that started me on my obsession with that superb king.
Why did I choose it up?

THE SAYINGS OF TSIANG SAMDUP [http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Discussion board/7656/tsamdup]
I experienced presently devoured Jack Kerouac's publications, which includes "The Dharma Bums", with its concept about Tibetan Buddhism. I was open to new books about Eastern philosophy, and was also was a fan of Sax Rohmer and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Considering that Mundy was a well-liked modern day of theirs, I determined to attempt it and have never ever regretted it.
OM opens with an amazing collection of catastrophic gatherings. Could this have happened anyplace else than in India? When I first examine it, I laughed till I cried.
The journey tale explores the caste system, the numerous religions, the Key Ways, the several different tribal places underneath the Raj and their broadly diverse customs.
It all centers around a mission started by an American millionaire philanthropist to teach the natives their personal religion along with fundamental hygiene to increase their way of daily life. Protaganist Cottswold Ommony, an 'old time forrester', was one of the 3 trustees appointed to oversee the venture, the other two, the girl who runs the mission and a mysterious RingDing Geelong Lama that no one particular has at any time observed.
To complicate the story, there are rumors of a mysterious stone, a massive Jade, with magical houses in the renowned Ahbor region where 'Masters' are reputed to live, of an adopted daughter of the woman who runs the mission, and a report of a stolen piece of that stone. On top of that is the ongoing secret of the sudden disappearance of Ommony's pregnant youthful sister and her husband, the mission's doctor, 20 years before.
That piece of Jade turns up in Delhi, is handed over to Ommony to look into, and
this marvelous journey will take off.
I extremely recommend this guide to all adventure lovers.
