In this glorious follow-up to Buddhist Himalayas, Olivier and Danielle Föllmi have once more worked in vivid colour to document the beauty of the majestic Himalayan landscape, while delving yet deeper into the wisdom of the Tibetans.
Each of the 365 images presented here is mirrored by a meditation from one of the great masters and thinkers of Tibetan Buddhism, among them His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kalou Rinpoché, Chögyam Trungpa, Anagarika Govinda and Shabkar. These insights, divided into fifty-two themes to follow the rhythm of the year, encompass subjects that touch all humanity, from money, health and faith to trust and love. Their wisdom and power offer the perfect means for daily meditation, whatever your beliefs or religious traditions.
Far more than simply pictures of a place and its people, these extraordinary words and images are lasting testaments to an enduring culture and faith.
'This book is an absolute visual feast - the pictures are simply stunning and the accompanying quotations are also food for thought. Each day has a picture and accompanying poignant idea'
