Living Tibet: The Dalai Lama in Dharamsala
Living Tibet: The Dalai Lama in Dharamsala
Description
Foreword

Since arriving here in 1960, in the early days of our life in exile, Dharamsala has been the headquarters of the Tibetan Administration. Over the years, stable settlements have been created and along with them schools, medical facilities and religious and cultural institutions have been established. In the monasteries and nunneries of all our spiritual traditions, educational and training programs have been resumed and in many places improved and extended. Many monastic institutions also provide their students with acquaintance with modern subjects. In addition, many artistic skills such as painting, metal work, woodcarving and sacred dance traditions have survived and are being passed on to new generations.

Perhaps most important of all, the Tibetan sense of identity, spirit and determination to achieve freedom have not weakened. Even after more than thirty years of military occupation, people in Tibet continue to demonstrate against Chinese rule. Many of these demonstrator, like their brothers and sisters born in exile, are too young to have ever known the old Tibet. Yet they all have no hesitation in asserting their Tibetan nationality and claiming their right to freedom and justice.

This illustrated book focusing on the life of Tibetans inn Dharamsala reveals many facets of our life as refugees. I congratulate photographer Bill Warren and author Nanci Hoetzlein Rose for their efforts, and trust readers many be inspired to lend their support to our efforts to gain a fair hearing for Tibet.

Back of the Book

Sheltered by the Himalayas of northern India, Dharamsala has been the home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet and the government and cultural headquarters for the Tibetan people since 1960. In Living Tibet: The Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, photojournalist Bill Warren and writer Nanci Hoetzlein Rose take the reader on a colorful and informative journey through the winding streets and behind the scenes of this unusual place. Sensitive and delightful portrayals of monks, nuns, artists, children, the elderly and working Tibetans reveal the rich tapestry of life in Dharamsala - there is an exclusive section on the Dalai Lama, and also on the Nechung Oracle. Living Tibet is an engaging and dramatic exploration of Tibet’s rich artistic and cultural heritage as preserved in one of the most successful refugee communities in history. For an authentic experience of Tibetan culture in exile, there is no better guide than Living Tibet.

“Perhaps most important of all, the Tibetan sense of identity, spirit and determination to achieve freedom have not weakened.

H. H. the Dalai Lama, from the Foreword

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
