Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This spiritual adventure is the first book to document the living tradition of Bon. This narrative features the voice and perspective of Gelek, a young Bon monk, giving it a knowledge of Bon not found in religious texts. According to the Tibetan calendar, 2002 was a holy year for pilgrimages, and in the holiest month of that year, Gelek set out from his monastery in Nepal with eleven hardy companions and photographer Thomas Kelly to travel to Kailish, a sacred mountain in western Tibet. Gelek was also on a mission to seek out the long-vanished kingdom of Zhangzhung. At the end of the journey, Gelek finds little that resembles the Bon kingdom. He comes upon crumbling ruins that have all but reverted to their native dust and earth. From this experience Gelek understands that the essence of his faith is not built on these shifting sands but on the bedrock of the change-less Bon teachings. This extraordinary trek is illustrated by 160 stunningly beautiful color photographs of the landscapes, travelers, local people, and Bon art objects. The text accompanying the images features a translation of Gelek's personal diary in which he vividly describes the arduous journey. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0789208563

Inhaltsangabe: This spiritual adventure is the first book to document the living tradition of B+¦n. What makes this narrative so compelling is that the voice and perspective of Gelek, a young B+¦n monk, lends an intimacy and knowledge of B+¦n not found in religious texts. According to the Tibetan calendar, 2002 was a holy year for pilgrimages, and in the holiest month of that year, Gelek set out from his monastery in Nepal with some hardy companions and photographer Thomas Kelly to travel to Kailash, a sacred mountain in western Tibet. He was also on a quest to seek out the long-vanished kingdom of Zhangzhung. At the end of the journey, Gelek finds little that resembles the B+¦n kingdom. He comes upon crumbling ruins that have all but reverted to their native dust and earth. From this experience Gelek understands that the essence of his faith is built not on these shifting sands but on the bedrock of the changeless B+¦n teachings. This extraordinary trek is illustrated by 160 stunningly beautiful color photographs of the unknown landscapes, as well as travelers and local people. Accompanying the images is the authorsGÇÖ vivid description of their journey, which is especially evocative as it includes translated excerpts from GelekGÇÖs personal diary.
