Summary

On March 10, 1959, His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama and his family, fled Lhasa, Tibet under artillery fire, saving a priceless set of 15 scroll paintings called the Tsongkapa Eighty. After reaching India, the paintings were donated to a Kalmyk Buddhist Temple in New Jersey. The authors have extensively researched the paintings and written their history over the centuries. This beautifully rendered full color coffee-table book contains: The Kalmyk Temple and how the paintings arrived there; a photographic journey retracing Je Tsongkapa's steps across Tibet; a definitive list of Je Tsongkapa's writings and the major biographies of his life; all 200 scenes from the original 15 paintings with captions; maps, portraying Je Tsongkapa's travels; painter, Ori Carin's modern interpretations of many scenes. The paintings depict the different roles of Je Tsongkapa's life: monk, philosopher, writer; meditator, dancer, yoga practitioner, poet, spiritual partner and diplomat; 1,000 color images.
