Book Description

July 10 2011
Classic images of authentic Tibetan thangka paintings open a sacred doorway into the world of Tibetan Buddhism. This Sacred Images of Tibet 2012 Wall Calendar features handsomely displayed meditative images of buddhas, goddesses and tantric figures. Each thangka is paired with informative text explaining the meaning and symbolism of the image shown. The paintings are all by master thangka artists living in Kathmandu, Nepal. These images have been used for centuries to awaken and extpand consciousness.

Your purchase of this calendar helps to support the Tibetan Lama Fund, which is building housing for refugee monks in India, and the Development of Children and Women Center in Kathmandu.

The interior pages of this calendar are printed on 100% recycled, 50% post-consumer paper, processed chlorine free and printed with soy based inks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, Lots of Explanation Nov. 25 2011
By L. Erickson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
This is a gorgeous calendar of Tibetan thangkas, painted by master artists from Nepal, and including explanatory text of the symbols and deities/buddhas depicted, as well as moon phases in the date portion. I am not quite sure what the prior reviewer saying this should be Rated R is talking about - I guess the tantric images of yab yum (male/female deities in union)? It's true there are some, so if that offends you, don't get this calendar (but I wouldn't think someone offended by that would be interested in a Tibetan Sacred Images calendar anyway!) Part of the proceeds from this go to Tibetan charities, so that is an additional plus.

I own a captivating thangka and this calendar's pictures are just what I expected. Each picture is worth framing up.

This is a 12-month calendar with the following on the last page:
