Reviews

"What delight these two must have had collaborating on this interesting guide to the inner world of Tibetan Buddhist sacred art. Writer Landaw and artist Weber answer those questions many people ask: Who are the figures in those thangkas, and what do they represent? The thirty-two color plates, many of them painted by Weber, could safely be said to be broadly applicable to Tibetan Buddhist art as a whole. And Tibetan art is indeed a potent introduction to Tibetan Buddhism itself."--Mandala Magazine

"A concise introduction to the fundamental points of tantric Buddhism as practiced in the Tibetan traditions."--The Mirror "A clear and straightforward guide to the inner world of this sacred art."--Napra Trade Journal "Besides the thirty-two full-color plates of images from Shakyamuni Buddha to Amitabha, there are also thirteen line drawings of arahats, great mahasiddhas, and pioneers of Tibetan Buddhism such as Tilopa, Atisha, and Tsongkhapa. The texts are well-written and describe the symbolic self-transformation and expressions of enlightenment depicted. . . . An excellent text for students, scholars, and practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism."--Eastern Horizon
