Synopsis:
Sacred Ground describes two journeys - an outward journey to specific pilgrimage places in Tibet and an inner journey through the sacred world of tantra, accessible through meditation.

It sheds light on Himalayan Buddhists` concepts of sacred land, places of pilgrimage in tantric Buddhism, and how pilgrimage is undertaken. It enhances our appreciation of the world and its sacred aspect everywhere - first and foremost, wherever we sit now. Using a translation of Jamgon Kongtrul`s Pilgrimage Guide to Tsadra in Eastern Tibet as a focus for this work and supplementing it with excerpts and supporting writings from Kongtrul`s other extensive works, Ngawang Zangpo has interwoven a rich and profound book full of important information not just for the pilgrim, but also those interested in Feng Shui, Geomancy, and gaining a better understanding of the many passages and references to pilgrimage found in tantric sadhanas.

"Sacred Ground is a revelation! Here for the first time in any Western language are several key ideas: the exact way outer sacred lands relate to points in the tantric body and the parallel terminology between the types of sacred ground and the stages of attainment." Hubert Decleer.
