Review by : Rudy
How to review a completely stunning book? This book contains detailed photographs
of the complete murals of the Kalachakra Temple in Dharamsala, India. These murals
could be said to be authoritative for the Kalachakra Tantra (as practiced in the
Gelug tradition) and depict the mandala and all its inhabitants in unprecedented
detail. The only thing missing is an actual 3Dimensional mandala, but that is
obviously impossible in a mural... The only reason a serious practitioner should
not have this beautiful art-book may be its price, but the considerable expense
is logical given the large size and the marvellous quality of print. If you can
afford it, it is a 'must-have'.
