Catalogue of Tibetan Mandalas and Other Images: Texts, Initiation Cards and Prayer Flags in the Royal Library and National Museum, Copenhagen
Author: Buchardi, Anne;
This visually stunning catalogue presents c. 300 iconographical materials and texts from the Tibetan collections of the Royal Library and National Museum of Denmark. Most of the entries describe such iconographical materials as mandalas, elemental divination paintings, ritual “tsakli” cards and prayer flags. Unique handwritten meditation manuals, a Mongolian Book of the Dead, illuminated manuscripts as well as philosophical and medical works are also featured. Together remarkable materials, which represent rare and unique forms of communication between man and nature in written and iconographical forms, play a central role in the performance of Buddhist and shamanistic rituals. Designed especially as an essential source of reference for scholars working on the religious and cultural history of Tibet, the catalogue includes over 250 colour illustrations that help identify much of the material listed.
