By any measure, even that of the fantastic hagiographies of India and Tibet, Lishu Daring had an interesting life. This great scholar, whose most famous work forged poetic allusion and logical reasoning, also crosses cultural, linguistic, and gender boundaries. Authenticity's audience has been described as being composed of people involved in intellectual and contemplative pursuits, those who would find it natural to admire someone who combined religious (which in Tibet and virtually all of Asia includes the religo-magical) with scholarly expertise. Lishu Daring commands respect on both counts; his life really is of the mythical world, spanning the magical, the meditative, and the meticulously reflective.
