Edwin John Dingle, known as Ding Le Mei to over 220,000 students of the Science of Mentalphysics worldwide, was born in England in 1881. He later became a journalist establishing a publishing empire in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Risking his life on both a mapping expedition and spiritual quest across China in the early 1900’s, he entered into Tibet. There he discovered the mysteries of Asia and India, secret wisdom, passed along from master to pupil, from wise man to wise man, for countless ages, beginning, perhaps, six or seven thousand years ago. In his quest for spiritual knowledge he became one of the first Westerners to enter a Tibetan Monastery. It was there that he was recognized as a highly evolved soul, and therefore stayed to study for a long period of time. Institute of Mentalphysics.
