    ORACLES AND DEMONS OF TIBET: The Cult and Iconography of the Tibetan Protective Deities ORACLES AND DEMONS OF TIBET: The Cult and Iconography of the Tibetan Protective Deities
    by Rene De Nebesky-Wojkowitz

    This definitive study of Tibetan protector deities reveals much about the early shamanistic base from which the Bon religion developed. The secrecy with which Tibetans surround the cult of the protective deities, especially the ceremonies involving ritual dances, divinations, black magic and weathermaking, was overcome by the author and he received instruction on these topics. He classifies the protective deities, details their appearance and attributes, and describes sacrificial objects, offerings, ceremonies, and oracles--their trances, ceremonies and attire.

  • SACRED BUDDHIST PAINTING SACRED BUDDHIST PAINTING
    by Anjan Chakraverty

    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.
