Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

For twenty years, renowned photographer Jon Ortner has been devoted to exploring the wonders of the most haunting and mystical of all regions on earth - spiritual Asia and the ancient lands of the Himalaya. Following in the footsteps of holy men and shamans, Ortner has trekked thousands of miles - many remote and dangerous - through Nepal, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Java, and Bali, to rediscover and record sacred topography, archeological and architectural marvels, and people whose lives are focused on enlightenment and growth. Where Every Breath is a Prayer is the culmination of this lifelong adventure and his gift to the West.
Witness the world's highest peaks and deepest gorges of the Himalaya; the world's oldest city, Varanasi, on the holy Ganges River; the once forbidden temples of Myanmar and Cambodia; the Grand Palace of Bangkok, and the magical landscape of Java. Here is sacred Asia - her spiritual glory kept alive by wandering mendicants, sages, and monks, religious artwork and artifacts, entrancing dancers, gold and jewel-encrusted shrines, ascetic rituals of devotion, and countless other visions few Westerners have seen.
Accompanying these evocative images are compelling factual and mythological narratives that trace the evolution and diffusion of the Hindu and Buddhist religions. From the primitive beginnings of animism, to the Hindu Creation Myth, to the birth of the Hindu prince, Siddhartha Gautama, and his legacy of Buddhist enlightenment, Ortner leads us down a path unbroken for thousands of years.

From Library Journal:

Ortner's astonishing photographs portray his love and devotion for the Asian countries he has traversed over a 20-year period. This grand tour of spiritual lands includes natural and architectural sites in Nepal, India, Cambodia, Java, and Bali. The artist's fascination with majestic mountains and remote temples is beautifully captured throughout the book. In his best work, he portrays bizarre Hindu and Buddhist statuary and the faces of disheveled religious mendicants. The only shortcoming is the text, which is factual, dry, and almost superfluous to the images. On the other hand, Journey to Enlightenment, though not as grand visually, is an excellent photographic and biographical treatment of a single holy man and his life in the realm of the ancient ritual traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. A Buddhist monk and Rinpoche's assistant, Ricard has flawlessly woven his narrative with excerpts from Rinpoche's autobiography to create not only a readable biography but also an intriguing introduction to the religion itself. Both books are recommended for general collections in public libraries and for all spiritual collections.?Terry McMaster, Onondaga Cty. Mental Health Svcs., Syracuse, N.Y.
