Deities of Tibetan Buddhism: The Zurich Paintings of the Icons Worthwhile to See (New)
by Brauen, Martin
Publisher: Wisdom Publications
Book ID: U10433, U10433
Wisdom Publications 2000. Second printing. isbn 0861710983. VG+.
Deities of Tibetan Buddhism is an extraordinary encyclopedia of Buddhist icons. The images, presented in the book at full scale, were originally created by a master artist in the early nineteenth century to serve as initiation cards. The original tsakli were woodblock prints, hand colored at the request of a Ch'ing Dynasty nobleman who had received the initiations. Such cards are used in ceremonies to introduce the practitioner to the deity and his or her practice. The paintings are housed in the Ethnographic Museum of the University of Zurich.
This book is also an indispensable reference tool for Tibetologists, students of Mahayana Buddhism, and museum curators. Its extensive supplementary materials include English translations of the basic invocation texts; the associated visualization with descriptions of the deities' postures, attributes, and colors; and the dharanis and mantras used in their invocation. The extensive pictorial index, featuring drawings and text by Robert Beer, explains the symbolic meaning behind the deities' implements and adornments. The cross-referenced indices for Tibetan, Sanskrit, Mongolian, and English names and terms provide quick access to vast amounts of information. Deities of Tibetan Buddhism is an essential text for any serious student of Tibetan and East Asian art and religion.
