Event description

Description

The western tradition of an earthly paradise relates intimately to the sacred realms of Tibetan Buddhist art. The intricate iconography of the mandala provides a ritual way for entering such places, whether virtually through imagination or geographically through pilgrimage, thereby breaking down the barriers between the spiritual and physical worlds. Hailed by National Geographic as one of ‘Seven Explorers for the Millennium’, anthropologist and author Ian Baker shares his research into the ‘hidden lands’ of the Himalayan Buddhist tradition. He explains how such earthly paradises may serve as models of environmental preservation and inspire the discovery of more sacred lands.
