1 108 Buddhist Statues in Tibet: Evolution of Tibetan Sculptures

Ulrich Von Schroeder

Serindia Publications, London, UK, 2008, 1932476385 / 9781932476385, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 240 x 345 Mm 
Mostly unknown to the outside world, the temples and storerooms of Tibetís monasteries shelter a great number of ancient Buddhist objects. Not only are there a great number of Buddhist sculptures and paintings produced by Tibetan artists, but included also are rare examples originating from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Burma, and China. These images have withstood sometimes more than one thousand years of warfare and other calamities. Despite a growing number of books dealing with various aspects of Tibetan culture and religion, most publications have the shortcoming that they are almost exclusively illustrated with objects scattered worldwide in private and public collections. A notable exception is the two-volume chronicle Buddhist Sculptures in Tibet, published in 2001 by this author. However, it is monumental in scale and there is a need for a more affordable condensed edition. 108 Buddhist Statues in Tibet not only fills the need for such a volume, but also provides additional research and recently photographed discoveries. It is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the stylistic development of Buddhist sculptures in Tibet. By using existing examples in monasteries, it also acts as a catalogue record of these objects that helps to ensure these objects remain there in the foreseeable future. This will enable future generations of scholars to do additional research with the same objects, unlike objects in private collections that are usually sold after some years. The book also includes a DVD of digital photographs of the 108 statues illustrated in this book and of the 419 most important Buddhist sculptures in the collection of the Jo khang / Lhasa gTsug lag khang. Some 311 of them were previously published in Buddhist Sculptures in Tibet. The remaining 108 sculptures will be illustrated in Jokhang Tibetís Most Sacred Temple, edited by Gyurme Dorje (to be published by Thames & Hudson). These 527 digital photographs can be downloaded free of charge by anyone, regardless whether for personal use or for publication. It is the hope of the author that other scholars will take use of this opportunity to publish some of these wonderful Buddhist sculptures. Printed Pages: 212 with 120 colour illustrations. 027808

11 Art of Tibet

Robert E. Fisher

Thames & Hudson, London, UK, 1997, 0-500-20308-3 / 9780500203088, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 Cms x 21 Cms 
Tibet has produced some of the most distinctive and creative art in the world, with striking qualities that set it apart from other Buddhist and Asian art. With the spread of Buddhism in the West, inspired by the leadership of the exiled Dalai Lama, and the controversy over Tibetís status, interest in this mysterious land has never been greater. Robert Fisher focuses on the relationship between the art and the spiritual life of the region, which is reflected by a pantheon unexcelled in its variety and complexity. From the Potala in Lhasa ?one of the worldís greatest religious complexes ?to painting, sculpture, manuscripts, silk embroidery and its highly developed tradition of portraiture and ritual objects, Tibetís unique artistic culture is vividly presented in this compelling study.

25 Empowered Masters: Tibetan Wall Paintings of Mahasiddhas at Gyantse

Ulrich von Schroeder

Serindia Publications, Chicago, USA, 2006, 1932476245 / 9781932476248, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 230 x 280 Mm 
Some of the most important Tibetan Buddhist monuments to have survived the ravages of history are the temples and chapels at Gyantse in Southern Tibet. In a chapel on the upper floor of the Palkhor Tsuglagkhang there exist superb wall paintings of the legendary eighty-four mah?siddhas ?tantric adepts who, through effort and practice, have attained perfection and are endowed with extraordinary powers. These 15th-century images are the most splendid extant painted representations of mah?siddhas in Tibet, yet they have never been published as an entire cycle until now. This has largely been due to the exceedingly difficult task of identification. Empowered Masters: Tibetan Wall Paintings of Mah?siddhas at Gyantse illustrates and describes these important murals. Each of the vivid masters is wonderfully presented; each has a name inscribed in Tibetan script. The stories of the mah?siddhas depict unorthodox, existential lives that encompass all of human experience, and provide insight into a wide range of tantric practice. This book introduces the monastic complex of Gyantse, then guides the reader through every wall painting of this magnificent chapel. Each mah?siddha image is illustrated in a full colour plate, with an accompanying description on the opposite page. The text briefly describes stylistic elements as well, and the introduction and appendices provide fascinating further information. Printed Pages: 224 with 100 colour illustrations. 036671

Half of the words are read by implications." This Tibetan saying explains the main difficulty Westerners face in learning to read Tibetan fluently.

The large glossary, which includes particles and is indexed by page, will serve as an invaluable reference for readers of Tibetan at all levels. The reading course includes the Tibetan alphabet and its pronunciation, as well as a wide range of modern literary styles from literature, history, current affairs, newspapers, and even communist political essays. Cassette tapes to assist students learning on their own are available through Case Western Reserve University's Center for Research on Tibet.

North Atlantic Books/Timeless, 2010, 1556438672 / 9781556438677, First Edition, Paperback, New, 13 x 23.5 Cm 
Tibetan medicine is a rarified field with few publications in English; it is also one of the most comprehensive of alternative therapies, addressing body, mind, and spirit. Written for intermediate-level practitioners, Essentials of Tibetan Traditional Medicine brings this important healing tradition to Western practitioners. The book begins by summarizing the basics behind Tibetan medical theory and its methods of diagnosis. The second part of the book presents the core concepts of wind, bile, phlegm, dark phlegm, epidemic fever, heat, and cold, along with their corresponding nosologies, differential diagnoses, and treatments. The third section covers therapeutics, with an emphasis on medicinalsóthe mainstay of contemporary practice. A chapter on therapeutic strategies discusses unclear diagnosis and other challenging clinical situations. Other chapters explore the crucial components of lifestyle and diet. Each herb and animal product used in Tibetan medicine is profiled on its own page, with its Tibetan, common, and botanical names; its key properties and clinical uses; its known pharmacological properties; and a simple illustration. This useful handbook concludes with a description and indepth analysis of some 60 frequently used formulas. Printed Pages: 395 pages. 037834

43 Hidden Treasures of the Himalayas: Tibetan Manuscripts, Paintings and Sculptures of Dolpo

Amy Heller

Serindia Publications, Chicago, USA, 2010, 193247644X / 9781932476446, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 27 x 31 Cm 
In 1999, a hidden library was found in the Nesar Temple at a remote village of Bicher, in Dolpo, Nepal. It contains more than six hundred volumes of Tibetan manuscripts, ranging in date from the late 11th to the early 16th century. This library in many ways constitutes a cultural history of Dolpo in this period thanks to some sixty volumes with historical prefaces explaining the commission of the manuscripts for the Nesar Temple, while more than one hundred other volumes have illuminations of the scenes of the life of the Buddha and episodes from the Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) texts. These illuminations inform us about the donors, their costumes, their Buddhist rituals while the dedications tell us about the systems of patronage and donation. Some illuminations reflect the ancient manuscripts of Tabo and Tholing, others reflect the sophisticated Newar aesthetic of Kathmandu and all these diverse tendencies reached Dolpo where they were appreciated.  By studying these texts within and examining the styles of the manuscript illuminations, Amy Heller was able to shed light on the history of this remote Tibetan enclave, the spread of Buddhism in the Himalayas and its artistic legacy. The manuscripts, sculptures and mural paintings discovered in Dolpo are the concrete expression of the complex economic, political, artistic and religious interactions between the people of Dolpo and their neighbours in India, Nepal, and Tibet. In addition to the illuminations selected for publication, the reader will find in this volume a complimentary DVD that includes photographs of all volumes with historic dedications, all the illuminations and historic documents preciously conserved in Bicher village. A combination of Amy Hellerís fine contributions, beautifully illustrated photographs, and a useful and accessible DVD makes this volume an important addition to the library of every scholar, collector, and academic institution with an interest in Himalayan studies.
