Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book, which has a foreword by the XIV Dalai Lama, reveals details of one of the most important expressions of Tibetan, or Vajrayana, Buddhism--the Kalachakra sand mandala, or Wheel of Time, brought to the United States by Tibetan monks. Bryant, the artistic director of the Samaya Foundation, describes this mandala as a work of art; he gives an explanation of its origins, development, and place in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and a step-by-step description of its use in religious initiation. He also reveals that the Dalai Lama shared this mandala with the world as a contribution to world peace. Essential for academic and museum libraries; recommended for seminary and public libraries.
