Faces of Bhutan - November 2009/November 2010
Buddhism in the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Exotic, sacred and hidden. Home to mad yogis and countless enlightened masters. For centuries Bhutan has intrigued the outside world and now, f.or the first time, many of its esoteric mysteries are revealed. Top Bhutanese and international writers include Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche on “Going Beyond Space and Time”, Chogyam Trungpa’s life-changing journey to Tigers Nest, Professor Bob Thurman on the emergence of western Buddhism, plus Bhutan’s secret spiritual warriors, the punk monk and much more. Through stunning photography and fascinating stories, this is a rare insight into Buddhism as it is practised in this last secretive shangri-la.
