Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Here is sacred Asia as never before seen by Western eyes. Where Every Breath is a Prayer follows in the footsteps of the holy men and shamans who, a millennia ago, wandered the peaks, valleys and rivers of Asia, beginning the evolution of Eastern spiritual traditions. The 300 images captured here depict the origins and living embodiments of Hindu and Buddhist traditions. Full color.

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.
