Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A description of Mani Rimdu from beginning to end, Lord of the Dance goes on to consider the structure of Tibetan ritual and its place within the history of South and Central Asian religions. In addition, the author discusses ritual as an art form and analyses the transformation of a textual tradition into performance art. Through the small window of the Himalayan festival, the book overlooks the vast horizon of the Buddhist experience.
Booknews
The three-week-long Mani Rimdu festival of Himalayan Buddhist tradition uses archaic ritual as well as prayers written by contemporary lamas. This detailed description and in-depth analysis of the festival considers the structure of Tibetan ritual and its place within the history of South and Central Asian religions. It discusses ritual as an art form and analyzes the transformation of a textual tradition into performance art. Contemporary b&w photos of the ritual are included. Kohn was a research assistant at the University of California, Berkeley, and director of the Buddhist Film Society. He has made two documentary films on the Mani Rimdu festival. Annotation c.
