A presentation on the Tibetan Buddhist path to enlightenment, through the lens of an artist's eye and experience.The sacred arts play an essential, intrinsic role in Tibetan Buddhist practice. Here, one of the great practitioners and master artists of our time presents a guide to the Tibetan Buddhist path, from preliminary practices through enlightenment, from the artist's perspective. With profound wisdom, he shows how visual representations of the sacred in paintings, sculptures, mandalas, and stupas can be an essential support to practice throughout the path.

Written by an authoritative scholar of Tibetan BuddhismPresents many works from rare private collectionsTibet - The 'Land of Snows' - is ensconced in the blue silence of icy peaks, the ochre silence of rocks, where once it was honey-combed with monasteries rich with their realizations of esoteric universes. A Tibetan inscription calls Tibet 'divine territory... a land that is a mine of wisdom'. The rich artistic heritage of Tibet reveals the depths of meditations of great Masters, translated into the majestic abundance of iconic symbols that take the form of three-dimensional images or two dimensional thankas.Tibetan Art is a comprehensive introduction to the complex iconography of thankas, providing a glimpse of the richness of this art and of the land where it flourished. It takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery: Buddhist deities do not exist outside us but represent aspects of innate human potential. With no distinct, independent existence or objective reality, these deities are but symbols of abstract qualities.Contents:Preface: Unto the Mindgroundof Tibetan Art: Lokesh ChandraTibet: The Land of Spaces and SilencesBuddhasBodhisattvasGoddessesTantras and MandalasMasters, Mystics & KingsMedical ThankasStupasGuardian DeitiesConclusion

Tibetan Arts of Love: Sex, Orgasm, and Spiritual
Presents in lucid detail the sixty-four arts of love divided into eight varieties of sexual play—embracing, kissing, pinching and scratching, biting, moving to and fro and pressing, erotic noises, role reversal, and positions of love-making. It is a translation of the Treatise on Passion by Gedun Chöpel, the highly contoversial former monk. He gives titillating advice to shun inhibitions and explains how to increase female sexual pleasure. An over-arching focus is sexual ecstasy as a door to spiritual experience—the sky experience of the mind of clear light pervades the scintillating descriptions of erotic acts.

Guge--Ages of Gold: The West Tibetan
Guge was a great Buddhist kingdom in Western Tibet. Today, only ruins remain of the once-splendid civilization, but, over seven hundred years, its rulers were passionate patrons of the arts who commissioned vast temple complexes, richly ornamented and filled with art and furniture by Kashmiri master craftsmen. The grand, spacious temples of Guge are all the more captivating because of the kingdom’s sudden, mysterious disappearance. To create Guge—Ages of Gold, photographer Peter van Ham and collaborators gained access to Guge’s temple complexes and monasteries—many of which are no longer accessible to photographers—and shows for the first time the art and artifacts that have survived to the present day, from both the Indian and the Tibetan sides of Guge and spanning the entire time period. Among the sitesdocumented are the monasteries Tholing, Tsaparang, and Dungkar, in addition to Serkhang, the “Golden Temple,” which contains many beautiful murals completed in the sixteenth century during the second of Guge’s two golden ages, when the formal and stylistic direction of Guge’s art became characterized by a blend of Kashmiri traditions and Nepalese and Chinese influences. A concise text accompanies the images, bringing in the latest research...
