New Delhi, India: Roli Books, 1999. New Delhi: Roli, 1999. First Edition. 4to. Pictorial boards, 96 pp., illustrated throughout in color. Away from the glamour that surrounds modern Buddhism, tucked away in the hushed and snowy corridors of the Himalayas, is the world of Buddhist monasteries, the gompas. This dazzling volume narrates the tale of the gompas of India, Nepal, and Tibet, which began as shelters for monks from the rains and developed into multi-purpose institutions to which the local population looks for their education, employment, and aid in times of crisis. The Buddhist Monastery tells of the emergence of the gompas, the evolution of their structures, the life within, and their art and architecture. New in new dustjacket.. First Edition. Pictorial Boards. New/New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
