  • This unique work presents invaluable material related to the Tibetan sacred dances, which have met their doom with the destruction of monastic life in Tibet. The author, during several periods of fieldwork in the Himalayas, studied these Buddhist temple dances. He brings to their description his expert knowledge of Tibetan iconography and ritual. This book is actually a detailed description and analysis of Tibetan ritual dances from Bon period onwards, based on both textual evidence and fieldwork. The appendix given in the book is concerned with the performance of Tibetan music and annotations. After reading this book, we can really learn more about the Tibet and its traditions along with the religions and religious dances. Thus, this book is very interesting and fascinating book to read to learn more about Tibetan culture and religions.
