Product Details

Praise

“This book brings a crystal clarity to one of the most profound rituals of Tibetan Buddhism. Barry Bryant has produced a gorgeous. powerful. and thorough guide to everything about the Kalachakra, from the technical details of the mandala’s architecture to the deep spiritual meanings it embodies.”—Daniel Goleman, author of Healing Emotions

“If you were stranded on a desert island and wanted just one comprehensive reminder of what Buddhism has to offer, plus the significance of the Kalachakra as a vehicle for world peace, it would have to be this gem. Certainly it is about the creation and meaning of the Kalachakra Sand Mandala (the monks who help to make it say they are reconstructing a representation of something that already exists: the utopia of Shambhala). But it is so much more: the life of the Buddha, his teachings, the coming of Buddhism to Tibet, the Dalai Lamas, Namgyal Monastery, the bestowing of the Kalachakra on whole communities, the initiation rituals, the practice of the Kalachakra Tantra in our daily lives to transform our consciousness . . . all in a riveting readable style. Plus some beautiful illustrations.”—Mandala: A Tibetan Buddhist Journal
