Sacred Scripts: A Meditative Journey Through Tibetan Calligraphy

£50.00

Sacred Scripts showcases the beauty of Tibetan calligraphy through insightful, meditative quotes alongside a beautiful collection of photos of Buddhas from around the world.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama writes, “With its exquisite calligraphy and magnificent photographs of Buddhist imagery, Sacred Scripts presents the refined and varied artistry of Tibetan calligraphers and artists of the past. The work portrayed in this fine volume reflects the great heights of aesthetic achievement attained by master artisans who considered their accomplishments to be offerings to the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha.”

Calligraphy has held an honored place in the spiritual traditions of Tibet. Monks dedicate their lives to mastering the many subtleties of the art, often spending years transcribing sacred Buddhist manuscripts. The carefully composed lines and deliberate spatial awareness in each work of calligraphy within Sacred Scripts encourages reflection, mindfulness, and meditation.

Within these pages, sacred mantras, seed syllables, and Buddhist quotes are presented in authentic Tibetan scripts. Photos of Buddha statues from around the world complement the calligraphy and create an ethereal mood of serenity. Addressing the stresses of our modern world and the demise of spiritual languages, Sacred Scripts provides insight and inspiration for inner peace and well-being.

Author and Tibetan Calligraphy artist – Tashi Mannox. Photography – Robin Kyte-Coles.
