The Mystical Arts of Tibet:
Featuring Personal Sacred Objects of H.H. the Dalai Lama

by Glenn Mullin, Andy Weber, Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi
Hardcover  (1996)
        Paperback  (1996)

This well-done book shows the most colorful and best of the Dalai Lama's personal collection of art. It contains beautiful, vividly colored Buddhist imagery of various buddas and dharmapalas (check out the painting of Vajrabhairava standing on a bunch of hindu gods on page 110), as well as a introduction by the Dalai Lama himself, and a brief tibetian buddhist history. I just wish it had a little more. All in all, well worth the price.

The Ajanta Caves:
Artistic Wonder of Ancient Buddhist India

by Benoy Behl, Sangitika Nigam, Milo Cleveland Beach
Hardcover  (1998)

The ancient caves of Ajanta in western India, rediscovered by British soldiers in 1819, are the only known examples of Buddhist carvings and paintings from an epoch of extraordinary vitality. The earliest of the 31 designed caves along the Waghora River date from the second century B.C., when the first Buddhists forbade representation of the Buddha himself, leaving artists free to employ a lexicon of symbolic figures. Six centuries later, the most splendidly realized of the caves were created to express the visions of the Mahayana order. Here the Buddha is lovingly portrayed seated, and the story of his life is depicted in sensuous detail. As adept a commentator as he is a photographer, Behl provides fascinating explanations of the techniques used to carve the animated reliefs and paint the richly detailed murals. He writes, "It is the life of the spirit rather than that of worldly existence which pervades these paintings," and, indeed, their contemplative beauty inspires a joy not unlike a foretaste of the purported ecstasy of enlightenment.
