Mandala: The Architecture of Enlightenment presents the art and philosophy of one of Buddhism's most important cosmic symbols in 48 fabulous examples, including sculptures of mandala art and deities and exquisite early paintings from both the Himalayan and Sino-Japanese traditions. Curator Denise P.Leidy provides a history and overview of the mandala, in all its diversity, throughout the Eastern world chronicling its development in India and moving on to countries as far afield as Japan and Indonesia. An insightful essay by Professor Robert Thurman explores the uses of the mandala in Buddhist philosophy and meditation, and describes esoteric visualisation practices meant to perfect the self. This book by portraying the finest examples of mandalas and through descriptions and essays, brings the reader closer to understanding these key elements in Eastern religion and imagery.
