In the fertile and temperate Kathmandu Valley, the Hindu and Buddhist traditions of Nepal recognize numerous power places- focal points of divine energy- where humans can make contact with the realm of the gods. Geomantic forces, divine myths, and human history and legend combine to make these locations potent sources of spiritual revitalization and psychic renewal.
In the environs of Kathmandu, the ancient traditions of goddess worship, animism, and shamanism have for centuries coexisted with the high cultures of Buddhism and Hinduism, both orthodox and tantric, to create a religious culture of rich diversity, vigor and complexity. The power places in the valley range from simple unhewn rocks and boulders revered since ancient times, to impressive pagoda temples replete with stone, wood, and bronze sculptures. These special places where the energies of heaven mingle with the affairs of earth have been the goal of devout pilgrims from different spiritual traditions down through the ages.
Over one hundred magnificent photographs, with informative text, illustrate the most important sites
