£24.95

365 photographs partnered with 365 simple but profound teachings to convey the breadth and depth of India’s life and landscapes

Overview

Indian Wisdom 365 Days celebrates those who live in harmony with the forces of earth and sky, who aspire to nirvana - the highest level of heart-, body- and mind-consciousness. This remarkable yearbook presents the wide words of a great master, philosopher or poet for every day of the year, accompanied by Olivier Föllmi's beautiful and moving photographs of Indian people and places. The effect is transcendental and transformative, awakening our senses and preparing our souls to receive these simple yet profound teachings.

Contemporary specialists on Indian culture have also contributed to Indian Wisdom 365 Days, which draws on such ancient yet timeless sources as poems by Rabindranath Tagore and Krishnamurti; the longest epic in world literature, the Mahabharata; and the most significant of the Hindu sacred writings, the Vedas.

A treasure in both content and form, this inspirational book artfully conveys the essence of India.
