Fosco Maraini - Segreto Tibet

Il Tibet, chiusosi ermeticamente al mondo nel secolo XIX, fu aperto a forza dagli inglesi nel 1904, per tornare subito a richiudersi ancora più ermeticamente di prima. Solo negli anni Trenta cominciarono a presentarsi rare occasioni d’accesso per alcuni privilegiati. Giuseppe Tucci, uno dei nostri massimi orientalisti, seppe approfittarne più volte. Nelle sue spedizioni del 1937 e del 1948 ebbe come compagno Fosco Maraini, allora giovanissimo, che dalle sue note di viaggio trasse «Segreto Tibet», un libro che ebbe enorme successo e fu tradotto in dodici lingue. In un momento in cui film e libri di successo puntano il dito sulla terribile situazione di oppressione e di violenza in cui si trova il Tibet a causa dell’invasione cinese, questo libro straordinario ci fa sentire la voce autorevole e appassionata di uno dei primissimi testimoni di una straordinaria civiltà che rischia di scomparire.

Sette anni in Tibet di Heinrich Harrer
Mondadori | 1999 | ISBN: 8804460091 | 340 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

La vera storia di Heirich Harrer, l'alpinista austriaco evaso da un campo di concentramento inglese in India e rifugiatosi nel remoto Tibet, all'epoca vietato a tutti gli stranieri. Nel settembre 1939, quando si trova nel nord dell'India, viene internato in un campo di prigionia inglese. Solo al terzo tentativo, con un compagno, riesce a raggiungere il Tibet a piedi e, dopo aver superato difficoltà insormontabili, riesce a raggiungere la città santa di Lhasa. Accolto nella migliore società, ha l'opportunità, primo occidentale, di conoscere e descrivere i costumi degli abitanti, diventa, infine, amico e confidente del giovanissimo Dalai Lama. A guerra finita tornerà in Germania ma il legame con la civiltà tibetana segnerà per sempre la sua vita.

In presenting these little stories to the public, it may perhaps be of interest if I describe how I came by them.
During two years spent in Tibet, at Gyantse, Lhasa, and elsewhere, I have made many friends amongst all classes of Tibetans-high and low, rich and poor-and have conversed with all sorts of persons upon all sorts of topics. In the course of my wanderings I learned that there exists amongst this fascinating and littleknown people a wealth of folk-lore, hitherto inaccessible to the outside world, and I made efforts to collect as many of their stories as I could.
For certain special reasons this quest proved more difficult than I had anticipated. In the first place, I found that many of the best known stories had been imported bodily from India or China, and possess but little of that local colouring which is one of the chief charmsof folk-lore. Secondly, some of the very best and most characteristic stories are unfit for publication in such a book as this. And, thirdly, human nature being much the same all the world over, it was not always possible to find a suitable raconteur in a suitable mood for story-telling. A story told by a nervous or reluctant narrator loses half its charm. A good story must be natural, and necessitates sympathy on the part both of teller and of hearer. Armed diplomatic missions and an official position, apart from all questions of difference of language and nationality, do not tend to elicit the ideal sentiments necessary for the establishment of complete mutual confidence.
