Description About the author Contents
Renowned photographer Don Farber, one of the most important chroniclers of Buddhism today, brings the face and the spirit of contemporary Tibetan Buddhism alive with this remarkable book. Portraits of Tibetan Buddhist Masters is a collection of superb color photographs of some of the most influential masters of contemporary Tibetan Buddhism presented together with quotations from each of them. This vibrant work, a feast for the eyes, is a testament to the compassion that lies at the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Some of the seventy-six men and women photographed here are well known, including His Holiness XIV Dalai Lama, Sogyal Rinpoche, and Chogyam Trungpa, and others are less well known to a wide audience. In addition to the quotations, which reflect a range of philosophies and teaching styles, each portrait is accompanied by a short biography. As a photographic archive of Tibetan Buddhist masters who have most inspired the West, Portraits of Tibetan Buddhist Masters plays an important role in preserving Tibetan culture, in all its richness and complexity, through the words and faces of its esteemed masters.

I am thrilled that Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche is included in this book with portraits of well known Rinpoches of different lineages. A very nice job by Don Farber.
