Darjeeling: Heaven's Bright Land
Darjeeling: Heaven's Bright Land
Description
From the Jacket

Darjeeling is the quintessential hill station where past and present happily mingle amidst a diverse and welcoming local populace that mixes easily with lowlanders and foreigners alike. Founded in 1835- and therefore one of the earliest of India's " sanatoria" -Darjeeling is virtually defined by tea, tourism, the "toy train" and barding schools of the highest repute. With Mount Kanchenjunga towering over the town, Darjeeling remains a lively and lovely place where one is transported in a whirl of clouds to a world truly apart.

Front Cover illustrations: The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway's Engine No. 782, a world-famous B Class coalfired steam locomotive, built in 1899 by sharp Stewart, Glasgow, Scotland (and still going strong!) with Mount Kanchenjunga in the background. (1999 watercolour by David Charlesworth G.R.A., Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England, from the personal collection of Virgil Miedema)

The Classic India Series portrays the Panorama of India's Cultural heritage and landscape beauty. For centuries, India was perceived as the land of fabulous riches, of wisdom, mystique and romance. It is this magic that the Classic Series captures. It provides a window to one of the world's most ancient civilizations- anachronistic at times but most often vibrant and alive today. A collector's item, book in this series is a visual delight.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
