Tibetan Buddhists see the world in two realities, of relative and absolute: the relative world is experienced as either the unusual world of samsaric suffering or the ordinary state of universal bliss and fulfillment.
Those enlightened have in mind their crucial oneness with the universe and feel the relaxation of a blissful connection to the whole lot. A Shrine for Tibet is a beautifully illustrated celebration of this philosophy through Alice Kandell’s unbelievable number of art from the 15th Century Ganden Renaissance all the way through to the 17th Century building of the Potala Palace, and into the 18th and 19th Centuries, where Mongolian and Manchu Qing Buddhist art bloomed within the Tibetan tradition.
