Awaken (New Stuff Tuesdays)

Awaken: A Tibetan Buddhist Journey toward Enlightenment book cover

As we approach a new calendar year, perhaps paging through this gorgeously printed book and reflecting on the art and philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism will help you bring closure to the old year and begin preparation for the new.

From the publisher: “Taking as its theme the universally accessible experience of Awakening, the book’s main text leads readers along an immersive journey of self-discovery, aided by a virtual guide, or lama, and traditional art meant to support meditative practice. Complementary essays examine Tibetan Buddhism’s ritual tools, paintings, symbolic imagery, and artistic traditions. Beautiful color images of all artworks, including three by contemporary Nepalese-American artist Tsherin Sherpa, and selected important details enhance our understanding of their complex iconography.”

Best wishes for a New Year!
