Book Description

3 Sep 2012
Tibet is the Roof of the World, a place where you feel that you are in the sky just as much are you are on the earth. The intense blueness of space contrasts sharply with the deep green of eastern Tibets rolling grasslands and the mineral colours of the west with its expanses of barren rock. For over a thousand years, Buddhist culture has been at the heart of Tibetan society, and anyone who has travelled across these high plateaux will understand how this contemplative civilization flourished in a landscape of such vastness This book seeks to bear witness to all that survives of that ancient world a world capable of making a valuable contribution to contemporary life. It also aims to provide a glimpse of a unique culture that is desperately trying to preserve its authenticity, despite the major upheavals that have shaken the land of its birth. May the images that follow serve as an homage to inner beauty Matthieu Ricard, from the Introduction

Review

Matthieu's spiritual life and his camera are one and the same, and it is from this unity that these fleeting yet eternal images spring. --Henri Cartier-Bresson

An interesting little publication jam-packed with environmental portraits. --Amateur Photographer

Awesome reading, and awesome photographs. The author really shows in this book how deep he was submerged in the experiences. A nice introduction for my trip next year :)

The photographs focus mainly on the Buddhist Monks and pilgrims and nomads in Kham in Eastern Tibet, including the summer festivals featuring races and equestrian games. There are a few photos from Kathmandu, Samye Monastery, Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar.

The photos are very good, but I prefer more tourist site photos than the pilgrim and monk photos. The cover photograph is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars The reality of Tibetans made richly present 27 Feb 2007
By Edward C. Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a welcome addition to other books published in recent years by Ricard. While it reproduces some photographs that can be found in The Spirit of Tibet and Monk Dancers of Tibet (in themselves, wonderful books), Tibet, An Inner Journey is Ricard's fullest photographic offering to date, closely covering a number of events and aspects of Buddhist life in Tibet, with an extensive focus on the Tibetan people themselves. I can't imagine another book that brings this people so close to the reader. It makes a persuasive plea for humanitarian assistance to preserve them and their unique Buddhist heritage.

This book is a wonderful trip in Tibet. Matthieu Ricard is an extremely talented author and photographer. He takes the best portraits! It is an awe inspiring journey to the roof of the world! So many magnificent photograph of the beautiful tibetan people! By buying this book, not only you are getting your money worth 10 time over but you are also giving to charities to support the himalayan people. This book is of the same quality as any from the legendary Arthus-Bertrand! Fantastic buy for yourself or as a gift!
