One of the country's youngest Buddhist nuns, she grew up in a remote mountain village where, as a teenager, she entered the local nunnery. Though simple, Kunsang's life gave her all she needed: a oneness with nature and a sense of the spiritual in all things. She married a monk, had two children, and lived in peace and prayer. But not for long. There was a saying in Tibet: 'When the iron bird flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the earth.' The Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1950 changed everything. When soldiers arrived at her mountain monastery, destroying everything in their path, Kunsang and her family fled across the Himalayas only to spend years in Indian refugee camps. She lost both her husband and her youngest child on that journey, but the future held an extraordinary turn of events that would forever change her life--the arrival in the refugee camps of a cultured young Swiss man long fascinated with Tibet. Martin Brauen will fall instantly in love with Kunsang's young daughter, Sonam, eventually winning her heart and hand, and taking mother and daughter with him to Switzerland, where Yangzom will be born. Many stories lie hidden until the right person arrives to tell them. In rescuing the story of her now 90-year-old inspirational grandmother and her mother, Yangzom Brauen has given us a book full of love, courage, and triumph,as well as allowing us a rare and vivid glimpse of life in rural Tibet before the arrival of the Chinese. Most importantly, though, ACROSS MANY MOUNTAINS is a testament to three strong, determined women who are linked by an unbreakable family bond.
You can print a large format document, such as a poster or banner, by splitting the page across multiple sheets of paper (called 'tiling'). The tiling option calculates how many sheets of paper are needed. You can adjust the size of the original to best fit the paper and specify how much each 'tile' overlaps. You can then piece together the tiles.
Adobe Reader 9 or earlier: Adobe Reader 9 or earlier do not offer the tiling option.
From the Page Scaling pop-up menu, select one of the following options:
- Tile Large Pages Tile only the pages that are larger than the paper.
- Tile All Pages Tile all the pages in the PDF file.
If the tile options are not in the menu, make sure that the following options are not selected in the Advanced Print dialog box: Print As Image or, for Acrobat only, Separations or In-RIP Separations. Also check your version of Reader. Reader 9 does not support tiling.
Set the following options as needed:
- Tile Scale Scales the pages by the amount you specify.
- Overlap Determines the amount each tile overlaps adjacent tiles.
- Cut Marks Adds guide marks to each page to help you trim the overlap.
- Labels Adds the filename and page number on each 'tile'.
