'In this glorious followup to Duddhist Himalayas, Olivier and Danielle Follmi have once more worked in vivid colour to document the beauty of the majestic Himalayan landscape, while delving yet deeper into the wisdom of the Tibetans. Each of the 365 images presented here is mirrored by a meditation from one of the great masters and teachers of Tibetan Buddhism, among them His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kalu Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa, Anagarika Govinda and Shabkar. These insights, divided into fifty-two themes to follow rhythm of the year, encompass subjects that touch all humanity, from money, health and faith to trust and love. Their wisdom and power offer the perfect means for daily meditation, whatever your beliefs or religious traditions. Far more than simply pictures of a place and its people, these extraordinary words and images are lasting testaments to an enduring culture and faith.
With over 370 colour illustrations.'
