  • MUDRAS IN BUDDHIST AND HINDU PRACTICES MUDRAS IN BUDDHIST AND HINDU PRACTICES
    by Frederick W. Bunce

    Mudras occupy an important place in Buddhist and Hindu religious practices as these signify special meanings, associated with specific divinities and rites, which cannot be represented any other way.

    This book is a dictionary of mudras in Hindu and Buddhist religious practices that lists the various mudras --deity-centred, rite-centred, Yogic-centred, and so on -- illustrating each with a simple drawing drawn generally from the perspective of one holding the mudra. It contains detailed notes that give numerous references to literary and other sources that reveal a lot about the mudras -- their descriptions in the texts, rites associated with the mudras in the texts as well as the varied interpretations of a number of mudras in the different texts. The book also has an introduction on Hindu and Buddhist mudras that goes into iconographic features associated with deities along with the technical descriptions and the subcategories and further divisions into which mudras are arranged. It scrutinizes the work done by a number of scholars on the subject to throw further light on the subject.

  • SACRED ART OF TIBET SACRED ART OF TIBET
    by Tarthang Tulku

    ... In their homeland these images were considered very meaningful and powerful, and we believe that there is great blessing in just receiving them visually. ...

    The specific details of these images are very complex and of interest primarily to students of esoteric Buddhist practices. Unfortunately, very few people today can even explain their meaning. Generally, the details portrayed on the images of Tibetan Buddhist art have symbolical meaning related to the study of the human consciousness: mostly they correspond to various specific meditations, visualizations, and other advanced practices.

  • DHARMA ART DHARMA ART
    by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

    "Dharma Art" refers to creative works that spring from the awakened meditative state, characterizrd by directness, unselfconsciousness, and nonagression. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche shows that dharma art provides a vehicle to appreciate the nature of things as they are and express it without any struggle or desire toachieve. A work of dharma art brings out the goodness and dignity of the situation it refelects-dignity that comes from the artist's interest in the details of life and sense of appreciation for experience.
