At the end of her nomadic existence, Alexandra David-Neel finally felt the need to have a home base. Outside the town of Digne, far from the big cities and their mundane circles, Samten Dzong represented the centeredness that was indispensable for her, and she would continue writing there until her death.
“Materially speaking, you must have a very humble appearance, remain in a mediocre situation, and be self-effacing in this world instead of trying to be a celebrity. But at the same time, you must elevate your spirit very high, feel as if you were very much above what is considered to be great on earth.”
