    THE WHEEL OF LIFE THE WHEEL OF LIFE
    by Kulananda

    The Wheel of Life is a graphic representation of the Buddhist understanding of life's processes, a mirror held up to us to help us fathom the depths of our suffering and predicament. Within it we see the forces that bind us and the ephemeral happiness and suffering that we create. We see how the forces interdependently act to drive the karmic process.

  • CREATIVE SYMBOLS OF TANTRIC BUDDHISM CREATIVE SYMBOLS OF TANTRIC BUDDHISM
    by Sangharakshita

    Tantric Buddhism is concerned with the direct experience of who we are and what we can become. Its sole aim is to help us realize our potential for profound wisdom and unbounded compassion by transforming the energy locked in by old habits, fears, and narrow views. For the Tantra this experience cannot be mediated by concepts; it is beyond words and thought, beyond the everyday mind and personality. But it can be evoked with the help of symbols.

  • DEMONIC DIVINE: Himalayan Art and Beyond DEMONIC DIVINE: Himalayan Art and Beyond
    by Rob Linroth and Jeff Watt, fore. by Matthieu Ricard

    Demonic Divine: Himalayan Art and Beyond marks the Rubin Museum of Art's opening season as the first exhibition to focus on the "wrathful" image in Himalayan Art. Centuries after early missionaries first claimed these works and the artists who made them "demonic", the accompanying catalog takes an in-depth look at the role of "wrathful" deities in Himalayan art and in the world at large.

  • DICTIONARY OF BUDDHIST AND HINDU ICONOGRAPHY DICTIONARY OF BUDDHIST AND HINDU ICONOGRAPHY
    by F. Bunce

    Man has, from times immemorial, exhibited a striking predilection or symbols. Which, through written words, drawings, sculptures or other visual/iconographic representations, seem to have shaped much of mankind's culture. From the simplest, yet eloquent, drawings on the walls of the prehistoric caves, through the sophistication of Egyptian imagery, the sculptural embroidered wealth of a Khajuraho, or the convoluted elegance of a Mannerist painting all interweave iconographic imagery so inextricably into their very core that, without its visual/didactic richness, these would be a mere shell, a hollow vanity! Veritably, our cultural scenograph will lose much of its 'sthetic charm and meaning, once it is bereft of iconography.
