Product Description

Lavishly illustrated with multi-dimensional photo-graphs of an ancient culture, Visions of Tibet reveals the outer, inner, and secret levels of Tibet. Outer Tibet is a nation with a history more than two thousand years long, a unique civilization built up in the Trans-Himalayan landscape of snowy mountains, glaciers, rivers, and vast steppes. Inner Tibet is the inner life of the Tibetan people, connected with the buddhas and bodhisattvas they feel around them as living presences of wisdom and compassion. Secret Tibet is the open quality of the heart, the realm of humanity s ultimate potential, realized by countless Tibetans and other spiritual practitioners throughout the world.

Brian Kistler s photographs are the record of a pilgrim of art, a pilgrim of the visionary beauty of nature and culture, animal and human, landscape and templescape, and a pilgrim of enlightenment. Hand-selected from thousands of pictures taken over fifteen years of travel, the images in Visions of Tibet are acts of delight and of homage to moments, people, and places, doorways into reverence, discoveries of the holy in the ordinary, and invitations to others to join the pilgrimage and experience the visionary.
