Following the publication of four books on Transformative Photography and two treatises on Tibetan Buddhism, these works honored through numerous literary awards, Simhananda presents us with a magnificent tome that fuses both themes: Emaho Tibet: Blessings from the Land of the Snows. As its title Emaho Tibet enounces, through its Sanskrit meaning ‘Marvelous Tibet’, this book bears witness to the profound beauty of the people, the landscape and the monasteries of Tibet.
Having journeyed through the Land of Snows many times, this book is, for Simhananda, a reverberant homage to this country which inhabits and inspires him. Through his photographs and the inspiring words that accompany them, the author reveals his depth of knowledge of the people of Tibet and of Tibetan Buddhism. It is furthermore, a living testimony to the pilgrims who ambulate this holy land.
More importantly, this book becomes for those who peruse it, a powerful guide for meditation, reflection and contemplation. The wisdom contained in these pages incites the reader to explore greater depths within his or her own consciousness.
Behind each of his visionary picture-words, is occulted a Truth which, if understood, can reveal the path to follow in order to attain the realization of a Divine humanity that seeks purely to express itself and to grow to maturity within each one of us.
Simhananda is an award winning author of numerous books on photography and spiritual wisdom, (under various pen names), and has been an experienced speaker on this specialized subject for over 35 years. Erudite, poet, music enthusiast, author, and art collector, this avid ‘terra’ traveler captures the essence of his many travels through his photography. He recently published his second volume on Gampopa’s famous 12th century Buddhist classical works.
