Dr. Walter Evans-Wentz spent his life in the study of religion. His passion led him to Stanford, where he earned both a B.A. and an M.A. in the field.
Well-known for his work in Tibetan Buddhism and Celtic folklore, he also explored the link between Native American spirituality and Tibetan mysticism.
His studies were more than scholarly pursuits; he was deeply entrenched in the life and ways of Tibetan Buddhism.
Evans-Wentz devoted his life to the study of Tibetan Buddhism and was the first scholar to bring this religion to the Western world.
