Product description

From the Back Cover

The Queen's Earrings. The Fur-Bearing Fish. The Endless Knot. Tibetan Buddhism is filled with rich, colorful symbols. But what do they all mean?

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.

Review

"This timely book preserves something very valuable-symbols as the visual manifestation of the psyche. The author deserves our thanks. Highly recommended." (Herbert Guenther, author of Wholeness Lost and Wholeness Regained)

"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)

"Symbolism is the language of the human spirit and this book is the most systematic study of its Tibetan idiom that has yet appeared." (Huston Smith, author of The Illustrated World's Religions) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
