Everything you need to start learning Tibetan calligraphy – includes many Mantras and Prayers as practice
The Written Word Contains Much Magic.
Ancient spiritual traditions have always recognized the power of the word, both as utterance and as symbol. In studying the Buddhist teachings, one has many ways of relating to the media of its transmission. Not the least of these methods is simply beautiful writing.
There is no one more capable of conveying this than Sanje Elliott. A great artist in his own right, he has studied and taught Tibetan arts for many years. He has mastered the traditional, highly refined styles of Tibet and at the same time developed his own creative interpretations. Now in this book of traditional calligraphy, we too can learn the necessary foundation of Tibetan writing, perhaps in order to explore later our own creative relationship with the language. I am grateful for this needed addition to the field and will use it immediately in teaching Tiberan. Sarah Harding, Naropa University
