Life and Thangka Searching for Truth Through Sacred Art
Life and Thangka Searching for Truth Through Sacred Art
Description

ISBN: 818647045X
Publisher's Note

We are happy to publish Life and Thangka by Tiffani H. Rezende with hope that this book will inspire all those who have interest in Tibetan culture and wishes to study it.

This book describes very vividly how he author came into contact with sacred art of Thangka painting at a workshop at Gandan monastery in Ulaan Bator, Mongolia and how she subsequently studied Thangka painting at the Norbulingka Institute, Dharamsala.
We are sure that our readers will find it inspiring and absorbing.

Life and Thangka

"This is a sacred art, a path which can take you to enlightenment."
When a Mongolian lama whispered these words to her, she realized she was meant to follow this path.

Tiffani H. Rezende was born in Brazil in 1981. Her spiritual search took her through an alternative community, a marine life, an Australian aboriginal reserve, the Russian wilderness and finally to the Mongolia steppes, where she saw Thangka painting for the first time.

She followed the suggestion from her lama to study in Dharamsala in northern India, the seat of H. H. the Dalai Lama in exile. There she was accepted as the first western student by the Norbulingka Institute and became a trained Thangka artist.

Described with humour and sensibility, a daily life as an apprentice in the art of Thangka painting.

  • The book is a review of the artist's life learning tibetan thangka painting... it's very unique story and nicely told, you easily can read it just at once. In her Portuguese version she tells us more stories (probably because she had to rewrite while translating into her own tongue) which makes even more interesting.
    Last year she 2007 she started painting and coordinating the paintings of a big temple in south Brazil... probably again one of the first foreigner to manage such project.
    Check her blog with amazing pictures of her works:
