The sacred arts play an essential, intrinsic role in Tibetan Buddhistic practice. Here, one of the great practicioners and master artists of our time presents a guide to the Tibetan Buddhist path, from preliminary practices through enlightenment, from the artist's perspective. With profound wisdom he shows how visual reprensentations of the sacred in paintings, sculptures, mandalas, and stupas can be essential support to practice throughout the path. Thia work, based on the autor's landmark tibetan text " "The path to Liberation" includes basic Buddhist teachings and practices, clearly pointing out the relevance for both the sacred artist and the practicioner, along with an overview of the history and iconography of Buddhist Art.
