Description

This book is based on a revered collection, long ago considered lost, of three-hundred-year-old Tibetan thangkas: elaborate paintings that portray a philosophy of healing based on Buddhist beliefs, Ayurvedic practices and ancient shamanic traditions. Rendered by Tibet’s foremost traditional artist, Romio Shrestha, using the age-old techniques of painting with rich materials such as gold and lapis lazuli, these breathtaking works reward the minutest contemplation.

The Tibetan Art of Healing is also a practical guide to our search for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. With insights into such ‘contemporary’ ailments as stress, allergies and heart disease, and chapters devoted to aspects of sexual alchemy, rejuvenation and Tantric yoga, this wide-ranging study is an unprecendented journey into health and transformation, an astonishing volume as timely and revolutionary as it is sumptuous and exuberant.
