Tibet: An Inner Journey

Tibet: An Inner Journey

Text and photographs by Matthieu Ricard

Publisher: Thames and Hudson


Matthieu Ricard has been living in the Himalayas for over thirty years. In this moving photographic journey, Ricard takes readers into the heart of Buddhist spirituality and into the daily lives and festivals of the people of the Tibetan interior. The reader follows pilgrimages made by the great lamas of eastern Tibet; bears witness to the artistry of wood-engravers at the gigantic Derge printing work shops; and meets hermit monks in extremely remote regions. These experiences and many others are recorded here in 191 color photographs.
