The pictures are accompanied throughout by contributions from nineteen eminent specialists on the region, who discuss the faith, culture, politics and traditions of the Himalayan world. Reflecting not only the cycle of human existence but also the history of the Himalayas, this lavish volume offers an unparalleled insight into Himalayan Buddhism in the 21st century.
