A User's Guide to Tibetan Buddhist Art and Practice
A presentation on the Tibetan Buddhist path to enlightenment, through the lens of an artist’s eye and experience.
This is a guide to the complete Tibetan Buddhist path from preliminary practices through enlightenment. Uniquely, this is presented from the perspective of traditional Buddhist artists and looks at how the images in paintings, sculptures, mandalas (maps for visualization), and stupas are intrinsic to the path. This book will be invaluable to any practitioner, not just artists.
