Synopsis:

The chapel was reserved exclusively for the Dalai Lamas as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat, and for centuries the murals guided them in mystical contemplation.

On a willow-covered island in a sacred pond behind Tibet?s Potala Palace is a pagoda-roofed temple that was built in the eighteenth century. Unknown artists created a series of mysterious paintings on the walls of the temple?s private chapel, and these masterpieces of Tibetan art are reproduced in this extraordinary publication.

The chapel was reserved exclusively for the Dalai Lamas as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat, and for centuries the murals guided them in mystical contemplation.

At the heart of the book are 150 color photographs of the murals and their temple by Thomas Laird. Ian Baker?s text places these remarkable works within their historical and cultural perspective and is augmented by accounts from other Tibetan sources. A special feature of the book is an introduction and quotations by Tenzin Gyatso, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama.

150 full-color photographs and 33 black-and-white illustrations

About the Author: Ian Baker?s many writings include The Tibetan Art of Healing.

Thomas Laird?s work has appeared in National Geographic, Newsweek, and elsewhere.

Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Dalai Lama's Secret Temple: Tantric Wall Paintings from Tibet, Ian A. Baker, Thomas Laird, On a willow-covered island behind Tibet's Potala Palace is a small pagoda roofed Khang, or temple, a place reserved exclusively for the Dalai Lamas as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat. During the brief reign of the Sixth Dalai Lama, who built the Lukhang Temple in the 18th century, unknown artists created a series of mysterious paintings on its chapel walls; comparable in quality and ambition to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, these masterpieces of Tibetan art are superbly reproduced here in this extraordinary publication, which is now available in paperback. This treasure of Tibetan Buddhist spirituality is presented in a magnificent and sumptuous large format edition. The vivid detail, rich colour and awe-inspiring impact of this path to spiritual liberation can at last be experienced outside the Lukhang Chapel. Bookseller Inventory # B9780500289617
