The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs


The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs


This study of the sacred art of Tibet is the result of eight years of brush drawing, and a lifetime spent researching and reflecting upon the inner and often hidden meanings and origins encapsulated in this complex iconographical tradition. Several thousand individual drawings arranged as a series of 170 pages illustrate the many variations in style, lineages and individual expression of these objects. The text interweaves the origins, meanings and functions of these symbols, derived from India, Tibet and China, into a comprehensive tapestry within a Buddhist conceptual framework.
