On a willow-covered island behind Tibets Potala Palace is a small pagoda roofed Khang, or temple, a place reserved exclusively for the Dalai Lamas as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat. During the brief reign of the Sixth Dalai Lama, who built the Lukhang Temple in the 18th century, unknown artists created a series of mysterious paintings on its chapel walls; comparable in quality and ambition to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, these masterpieces of Tibetan art are superbly reproduced here in this extraordinary publication, which is now available in paperback. This treasure of Tibetan Buddhist spirituality is presented in a magnificent and sumptuous large format edition. The vivid detail, rich colour and awe-inspiring impact of this path to spiritual liberation can at last be experienced outside the Lukhang Chapel.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is renowned the world over for his unswerving dedication to non-violence in his efforts to achieve justice for Tibet, yet the Chinese call him 'a wolf in monk's robes'. He is fourteenth in a lineage whose history is every bit as bloody and intrigue-laden as that of the Papacy. The sixth Dalai Lama was a notorious womaniser, four successive ones were almost certainly murdered and the present Dalai Lama has himself been the target of attacks that resulted in the brutal murder of a close colleague THE LIVES OF THE DALAI LAMA gives a fast-paced and absorbing insight into the real story of Tibetan culture, politics and spirituality, and shows the Dalai Lama as a man of courage, compassion and honesty.
