Visions of Buddhist life by Don Farber( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Farber's photographs open a view of the beauty and diversity of Buddhist life around the world. His eye for composition, his attention to color and detail, and his intimate knowledge of Buddhism come together to produce a study in the human face, in the art of spiritual devotion, in the evocative power of landscape. The photographs, together with Farber's extensive captions, take us to the temples, monasteries, and colorful streets of Los Angeles, Kyoto, and Bangkok, and travel onward to China, India, Nepal, South Korea, and Taiwan. These images capture some of the last Tibetan masters to have received their training before the Chinese invasion. They also picture some of the great teachers of our day--the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Kalu Rinpoche. They depict Buddhists alone and in crowds, in cities rich and poor, in meditation and in conversation. --From publisher description

Portraits of Tibetan Buddhist masters by Don Farber( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renowned photographer Don Farber, one of the most important chroniclers of Buddhism today, brings the face and the spirit of contemporary Tibetan Buddhism alive with this remarkable book. Portraits of Tibetan Buddhist Masters---a collection of superb color photographs presented with brief biographies and teachings from each master---is a vibrant work, a testament to the compassion and wisdom that lies at the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Farber felt compelled to record the last of the living Buddhist masters who received their training in Tibet and then fled the country following the invasion by China, as well as other masters who survived many years of imprisonment during the Cultural Revolution. He has worked with a sense of urgency to photograph and interview these extraordinary beings who have been the custodians of this endangered Buddhist tradition. His collection of portraits also includes some of the bright lights of Tibetan Buddhism, the younger masters who will carry the tradition into the future. As a photographic archive of Tibetan Buddhist masters, this book plays an important role in preserving Tibetan culture, in all its richness and complexity, through the words and faces of its esteemed masters
