Description

Sramanera Jivaka (Michael Dillon), Growing up into Buddhism (Calcutta 1960). Born the sister of the Baronet of Lismullen in Meath, Dillon (1915 – 1962) became the world’s first female to male transsexual through plastic surgery and is a worldwide icon for transgender people. Outed by the British tabloid press in the 1950s, he fled to India where he was ordained a Buddhist novice (sramanera) in first the Theravada and then the Vajrayana traditions, eventually dying in the Himalayas on his way back to his monastery in Ladakh. This book was written for teenagers on behalf of the Indian Buddhist Maha Bodhi Society. Laurence Cox (lecturer)– Personal Copy
