Tibetan Calligraphy Copybook in the Uchen Tsuring and Chuyig Styles Book Review:

This is a copybook printed in black and white for adults who wish to learn how to write the Tibetan script in the Uchen, Tsuring or Chuyig style. Uchen is a printed script used throughout Tibet. As a handwritten script it is mostly prevalent in Amdo and Kham, the regions in north-eastern and eastern Tibet. Central Tibet (U-Tsang), on the other hand, prefers Ume handwriting styles, which include Tsuring and Chuyig. People first learn to write in the Tsuring style, for example, before progressing to the Chuyig shorthand style once they have sufficient writing experience. Chuyig is suitable for writing quickly. This copybook contains the 30 letters and four vowel signs that make up the Tibetan alphabet as well as two punctuation marks (the dot and and the simple bar) and all 89 compound characters (ligatures) of the Tibetan script. They are reproduced in the Uchen, Tsuring and Chuyig styles. An entire page is dedicated to each of the 30 letters and the four vowel signs. The punctuation marks and the ligatures are each given half a page. At the beginning of the page is an illustration that shows the order in which the individual strokes of the letter have to be written. The letter is initially printed in a background colour so that it can be traced. The blank lines are designed for independent practice. At the end of the book the characters in the three different writing styles are each summarised on one page. There are also four blank copy templates here four further writing exercises. "

Sacred Scripts Book Review:

Insightful quotes written in Tibetan calligraphy are paired with photos of Buddhas from around the world to create this collection of timeless iconography. Calligraphy holds an honored place in the spiritual traditions of Tibet. Buddhist monks train for years to master the art and use the sacred writing form as a method of meditation. Each stroke of the paintbrush and each deliberate use of empty white space carry the weight and meaning of centuries of spiritual tradition. Over the last few years, the Tibetan written language has become increasingly endangered. In an effort to raise awareness about the value and beauty of this ancient and sacred language, classically-trained calligrapher Tashi Mannox has written mantras and words of wisdom in elegant Tibetan calligraphy and paired them with photos of Buddhas from around the world taken by Robin Kyte-Coles. The photos provide a scenic and global backdrop to meditate upon, and the calligraphy provides the spiritual wisdom to guide one s meditation. A journey through Eastern symbology, "Inspirations from Buddha "provides a unique selection of visual and written pairings that invite meditation, thought, and spiritual reflection. The stark lines, ethereal beauty, and timeless quality of Eastern symbology will help readers to discover the truth of meaningful emptiness."

The Heart of the World Book Review:

The myth of Shangri-la originates in Tibetan Buddhist beliefs in beyul, or hidden lands, sacred sanctuaries that reveal themselves to devout pilgrims and in times of crisis. The more remote and inaccessible the beyul, the vaster its reputed qualities. Ancient Tibetan prophecies declare that the greatest of all hidden lands lies at the heart of the forbidding Tsangpo Gorge, deep in the Himalayas and veiled by a colossal waterfall. Nineteenth-century accounts of this fabled waterfall inspired a series of ill-fated European expeditions that ended prematurely in 1925 when the intrepid British plant collector Frank Kingdon-Ward penetrated all but a five-mile section of the Tsangpo’s innermost gorge and declared that the falls were no more than a “religious myth” and a “romance of geography.” The heart of the Tsangpo Gorge remained a blank spot on the map of world exploration until world-class climber and Buddhist scholar Ian Baker delved into the legends. Whatever cryptic Tibetan scrolls or past explorers had said about the Tsangpo’s innermost gorge, Baker determined, could be verified only by exploring the uncharted five-mile gap. After several years of encountering sheer cliffs, maelstroms of impassable white water, and dense leech-infested jungles, on the last of a series of extraordinary expeditions, Baker and his National Geographic–sponsored team reached the depths of the Tsangpo Gorge. They made news worldwide by finding there a 108-foot-high waterfall, the legendary grail of Western explorers and Tibetan seekers alike. The Heart of the World is one of the most captivating stories of exploration and discovery in recent memory—an extraordinary journey to one of the wildest and most inaccessible places on earth and a pilgrimage to the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist faith.

The Art of Calligraphy Book Review:

During the twenty-year period of his remarkable proclamation of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings in the West, calligraphy was a primary means of expression for Chogyam Trungpa. This book showcases fifty-eight of his brushworks—poems, seed syllables, and phrases as well as abstract images. Facing them are short, pertinent quotations from his prose and poetry. An essay entitled "Heaven, Earth, and Man," based on one of Trungpa's "dharma art" workshops, is also included. Here he emphasizes what he called "art in everyday life": the cool, peaceful expression of unconditional beauty that offers us the possibility of being able to relax enough to perceive the phenomenal world and our own senses properly. He goes on to show how the dynamic of heaven, earth, and man (the ancient Oriental hierarchy of the cosmos) is basic to any artistic endeavor—painting, building a city, or designing an airplane—as well as to perceiving the art that surrounds us. He also introduces the idea that "the discipline of art-making" can be used to organize and create a decent society.

Mahamudra and Related Instructions Book Review:

The Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism began in the eleventh century with such renowned figures as Marpa and Milarepa, and its seminal meditative traditions are Mahamudra and the six Dharmas of Naropa. Mahamudra teachings focus on the cultivation of profound insight into the nature of the mind. The Mahamudra texts in this volume include a lucid work by the celebrated master Tsele Natsok Rangdrol and works by the twelfth-century master Shang Rinpoche, the great Third Karmapa, the Eighth Tai Situ, and Drukpa Pema Karpo. The volume also contains an inspirational work by Gampopa, the Drigung Kagyu root text, The Single Viewpoint, the Sixth Shamarpa's guide to the six Dharmas of Naropa, and finally an overview of tantric practice by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal, author of the famous Moonlight of Mahamudra. The texts in this volume were selected by the preeminent scholar of the Kagyu school, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche.
