From the Inside Flap:

A stunning visual introduction to the artistic and spiritual heart of Tibetan Buddhism.

According to the monks who create it, the Kalachakra Sand Mandala, also known as the Wheel of Time, imparts peace and healing to all beings and to the planet. Remarkable not only for its stunning beauty but also for the intricate process of its construction--a delicate sifting of colored sands into elaborate patterns and symbols rich in meaning--the mandala serves as a visual scripture and vital key to understanding the essential teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. This lavishly illustrated volume captures each stage of the mandala's construction, the serene joy and painstaking discipline of the monks, and the fascinating history behind its symbolism.

The late Barry Bryant was artistic director of Samaya Foundation in New York City.

"A self-contained lay-person's introduction to the entire Tibetan Buddhist tradition that takes as its starting point the visual window offered by the Kalachakra mandala."--Tricycle Magazine

"This book brings a crystal clarity to one of the most profound rituals of Tibetan Buddhism. Barry Bryant has produced a gorgeous, powerful, and thorough guide to everything about the Kalachakra, from the technical details of the mandala's architecture to the deep spiritual meanings it embodies."--Daniel Goleman, author of Healing Emotions
