    GODS, GODDESSES AND RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS OF HINDUISM, BUDDHISM AND TANTRISM GODS, GODDESSES AND RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS OF HINDUISM, BUDDHISM AND TANTRISM
    by Trilok Chandra Majupuria, Rohit Kumar

    This book has been written for those who would like to know about gods and goddesses in Hinduism, Buddhism and Tantrism. Tibetan deities as well as those associated with sutras (esoteric discourses) are also dealt with in detail. It would be of special interest to visitors who come to Nepal for a short visit. Since most of the sculptures, paintings are based on religious mythologies, therefore, a basic understanding of the religion is also necessary.

  • HISTORY OF TIBETAN PAINTING: The Great Tibetan Painters and Their Traditions HISTORY OF TIBETAN PAINTING: The Great Tibetan Painters and Their Traditions
    by David Jackson

    "A History of Tibetan Painting" explores the sacred painting traditions of Tibet from the mid 15th through 20th centuries on the basis of both the surviving pictorial remains and the extensive written sources that survive in the Tibetan language. It attempts to identify and date the main painting schools of post 14th century Tibet and locates for the first time paintings that can confidently be linked to some of the founding masters. The book includes a survey of the main available Tibetan sources and studies, both traditional and modern, as well as a detailed summary of previous Western research on this subject.

  • ART OF TIBET ART OF TIBET
    by Robert Fisher

    Tibet has produced some of the most distinctive and creative art in the world. From a bleak and often inaccessible landscape arose an artistic tradition so vibrant and sophisticated that even China's emperors commisioned works.With the spread of Buddhism in the West, inspired by the leadership of the exiled Dalai Lama, and the controversy over Tibet's status, interest in this mysterious ladn has never been greater. This book covers the entire history of Tibetan art, focusing on the inextricably interwined relationship between the art and the spiritual life of the region. From the Potala in Lhasa - one of the world's greatest religious complexes - to painting, sculpture, manuscript, silk embroidery and a highly developed tradition of portraiture and ritual objects. Tibet's unique artistic culture is vividly presented in this compelling study.

  • ART OF NALANDA: Development of Buddhist Sculpture AD 600-1200 ART OF NALANDA: Development of Buddhist Sculpture AD 600-1200
    by Debjani Paul

    A renowned meeting ground of Buddhist Asia, Nalanda was also a prolific centre of artistic output imbued with remarkable 'sthetic vision and innovative skill. The books is the first major study of the Buddhist sculpture from the site in multiple media like stone, metal and stucco. It provides a succinct account of the development of plastic from basing on a solid foundation of iconographic and stylistic analysis. After tracing its Kusana-Gandhara and Gupta-Sarnath heritage as well as by touching upon its legacy on the art of Tibet in particular, the author has aptly characterized Nalanda as the seed-bed for later Buddhist art and iconography of a far wider region beyond the geographical boundary of eastern India.

  • STUPA: Art, Architectonics and Symbolism STUPA: Art, Architectonics and Symbolism
    by Guiseppe Tucci

    In 1932 Professor Giuseppe Tucci published his fundamental work Indo-Tibetica I on the stupa in general as well as on stamped and die-cast votive stupas in Indian and Western Tibet, as a contribution to the study of Tibetan religious art and its meaning. It contains crucial results of Tucci's field investigations and perceptions, which have been inaccessible so far to the English- reading world. The present English translation seeks to put it within the reach of indologists, art historians, Tibetanists, anthropologists.

  • PSYCHOCOSMIC SYMBOLISM OF THE BUDDHIST STUPA PSYCHOCOSMIC SYMBOLISM OF THE BUDDHIST STUPA
    by Lama Govinda

    Throughout the cultures of the Orient, the Buddhist stupa has been perhaps the most pervasive and symbolic form of architecture. In early times, stupas were "symbols of illumination"- memorials which were intended to inspire later generations to follow the path to Enlightenment. Like the Egyptian pyramid, the Buddhist stupa evolved, not only as a repository for the relics of revered persons, but as a universal symbol, the embodiment of all knowledge contained in a single piece of architecture.
