  • BUDDHIST ICONOGRAPHY BUDDHIST ICONOGRAPHY
    by Lokesh Chandra

    The art that arose from the snowy heights and in the warm plains of India became the frozen music of form in the vast expanses of Asia, from Siberia, Mongolia, Tibet, China, Korea, and Japan to Nepal, Ceylon, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia and other countries. Indian art in its Buddhist idiom is a transic response to the immensity of hummano-cosmic unity.

  • ICONOGRAPHY OF A THOUSAND BUDDHAS ICONOGRAPHY OF A THOUSAND BUDDHAS
    by Lokesh Chandra

    Iconography of the Thousand Buddhas records their names in Sanskrit, Tibetan, Manchu, Mongolian and Chinese. Also contained in the text is Tibetan drawings of the Thousand Buddhas obtained from the printery below the Potala Palace at Lhasa in Tibet. These drawing have been reproduced in this book for the first time. The recitation of a thousand names or epithets of a deity is an ancient Indian tradition: an awareness of the perennial possibilities of the spiritual horizon. Here the illuminated mind is thousand folded into ever higher intuition of the infinity of the transcendent Universal. The thousand epithets of the Buddha underwent an apotheosis as the Thousand Buddhas and they became a thousand pictures or a thousand icons, in variations of fives or sixes.

  • ICONOGRAPHY OF TIBETAN LAMAISM ICONOGRAPHY OF TIBETAN LAMAISM
    by Antoinette K. Gordon

    The Iconography of Tibetan Lamaism was first published in 1939, for the express purpose of "giving the student interested in Tibetan iconography a general idea of the development of Buddhism into Lamaism, and making easier the identification of the various deities of the Tibetan pantheon." Although interest in the field has grown over the years, the book has remained the only authoritative work of its kind.

    The book gives a descriptive outline of the principal Gods in the Tibetan pantheon, tracing the main features and symbols that are used to denote each one. A comprehensive illustrated list of the various ritual objects, talismans, symbols, mudras (symbolic hand poses), and asanas and vahanas (position of the lower limbs) that are used in the images of Gods is accompanied with a word list of the Sanskrit terms most commonly encountered in a study of Lamaism.

  • MEETING THE BUDDHAS: A Guide to Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Tantric Deities MEETING THE BUDDHAS: A Guide to Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Tantric Deities
    by Vessantara

    Sitting poised and serene upon fragrant lotus blooms, they offer smiles of infinite tenderness, immeasurable wisdom. Bellowing formidable roars of angry triumph from the heart of blazing infernos, they dance on the naked corpses of their enemies.
    Who are these beings - the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and Protectors, the 'angry demons' and 'benign deities' - of the Buddhist Tantric tradition? Are they products of an alien, even disturbed, imagination? Or are they, perhaps, real? What have they got to do with Buddhism? And what have they got to do with us?
    In this vivid and informed account, an experienced Western Buddhist guides us to the miraculous beings who dwell there.
    Although this book can be used as a work of reference, it offers much more than a relaxed museum visit. Are we awake? Or are we dreaming? Surely, those awesome figures are alive - and have a message with the power to change our lives.
