From the Back Cover
In this fascinating study, Dagyab Rinpoche not only explains the nine best known groups of Tibetan Buddhist symbols., but also shows how they serve as bridges between our inner and outer worlds. As such, they can be used to point the way to ultimate reality, and to transmit a reservoir of deep knowledge formed over thousands of years. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
"Dagyab Rinpoche is an extraordinary person who combines Western scholarship with the depth of the wisdom of being a Tibetan lama." (Martin Kalff, founding member of the International Society for Sandplay Therapy)
"As Dagyab Rinpoche defines each symbol, he further illuminates the concepts inherent in Tibetan Buddhism which is, in its earthly manifestation, voluptuously visible." (Booklist)
"Fills a long felt gap in the study of Tibetan art and symbols in English." (The Tibet Journal)
"Interesting for both the specialist and any interested reader." (Himalayan Research Bulletin)

I would most certainly recommend this book. I read it daily as part of my spiritual practice/ study. As a Catholic, I also try to link the symbols with my own religion.
