Sacred Buddhist Painting
Sacred Buddhist Painting
Description
From the Jacket: Sacred Buddhist Painting is a lucid and readable account of thangka painting, a form of scroll painting integral to Tibetan Buddhist worship.

Painting (along with sculpture ) was crucial to the religious life of Tibet. Ordinary Tibetans were often advised by their religious preceptors to commission a painting for the ' removal' of physical or mental obstacles, or to create the prerequisites for 'a long and healthy life' (Zhabs Brtan). Like any other virtuous deed, the commissioning of religious art was believed to earn merit (bsod nams), the only thing that in the Buddhist view could give rise to future benefits and happiness. From this has emerged an art unique in its imagery, choice of colors and immediacy of content.

This book introduces the reader to the gem-like iridescence of colors representing the archetypal Buddhist images of good and evil. The book has thangkas from renowned private and public collections the world over. Of special interest are the select thangkas from the collection of H.H. the Dalai Lama's private chapel (Namgyal Monastery), from his apartment above Norbulingka Temple, and from his collection donated to the library of works and archives, in Dharamsala, India.

About the Author:

Anjan Chakraverty lives in Varanasi. After his post graduation in creative painting he did his doctoral research on 'Landscape in Indian Miniature Painting'. His book, Indian Miniature Painting, was published in 1996. He shares his time between painting and teaching art history at the Faculty of Visual Art, Banaras Hindu University.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
