To travel in sacred Tibet, the Holy Land of Asia, is to embark on a mystical journey into the sacred space of Tibetan Buddhism, a space quite separate from the political and social space of Communist Tibet and, perhaps, from our ordinary consciousness. Taking this journey involves pilgrimage to a power place- to a mountain, a cave, a monastery or a temple- through a transformed landscape, perhaps inhabited by gods and demons, Buddhas and bodhisattvas, yogis and magicians.
Tibet is a country imbued with spiritual significance. Despite the many hardships- distrustful authorities, the severe altitude, the climate, the physical exhaustion these cause- pilgrimage in sacred Tibet is a quest which no external factor can frustrate. This book offers both visionary and historical perspectives on the sacred realm, and includes a gazetteer describing the highlights of a tour of Tibet, with detailed, informed descriptions of the power places, mountains and lakes, caves, monasteries and temples.
