This is the first book to bring together all elements of Tibetan Buddhist life; a fragile culture in danger of vanishing from our world. A testament to the beauty, wisdom, and strength of these people, the book is richly illustrated with over 200 stunning reproductions. Included are many remarkable pictures by the author, acclaimed photographer Don Farber, in addition to historic and contemporary photographs, and both ancient and modern Tibetan art. In-depth text explores the development of Tibetan Buddhism and its influence on other cultures; monastic and laic life--artistic and ritual expression, spiritual and daily life; and the legacy of the Dalai Lamas. A special section comprises photographs and rare interviews with Buddhist masters from the last generation of lamas trained in Tibet. Founded in New York in 1981 with the guidance of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, The Tibet Fund is the focal point for international humanitarian assistance to the Tibetan community; its primary mission is the preservation of the distinct cultural, religious, and national identity of the Tibetan people.
