A magnificent encyclopedia of Buddhist icons based on the Rinjung Gyatsa, the Narthang Gyatsa, and the Vajravali. Full colour illustrations of over five hundred Tibetan Buddhist deities are reproduced here from a set of hand-painted woodblock prints created in the early nineteenth century. Housed in the Ethnographic Museum of the University of Zurich, this rare collection is presented along with an extensive explanation of the meditative visualizations, mantras, and symbolism around each figure.
Deities of Tibetan Buddhism is an indispensable reference and identification aid for art historians, curators, scholars, and serious students of Tibetan Buddhism throughout the world.
