Tibet: An Inner Journey by Matthieu Ricard

In the introduction, Matthieu Ricard wrote that “Tibet is the Roof of the World, a place where you feel that you arein the sky just as much as you are on the earth. The intense blueness of space contrasts sharply with the deep green of eastern Tibet’s rolling grasslands and the mineral colors of the west with its expanses of barren rock. For over a thousand years, Buddhist culture has been at the heart of Tibetan society, and anyone who has traveled across the high plateaux will understand how this contemplative civilization flourished in a landscape of such vastness.” You will find intimate close-ups, breathtaking landscapes, mysterious customs and ritual, etc concentrated in the one book.
