Tibet by Tibetans. Photojournalism at its best. This book has some of the most beautiful pictures of Tibetan people that I have seen. The text is well thought out. One of the new insights that I learned is that Sky Burial is the person’s last gift of charity. Sky Burial is placing the chopped corpse out for vultures to eat. I had always assumed that sky burial so the vultures would take the body up into the heavens.
The history and Tibetan religion are briefly explored. A great book to borrow from the library.
This blurred photo of the cover does not convey the beauty of the book.
