Publisher's description: This visually stunning catalogue presents c. 300 iconographical materials and texts from the Tibetan collections of the Royal Library and National Museum of Denmark.

Unique handwritten meditation manuals, a Mongolian Book of the Dead, illuminated manuscripts as well as philosophical and medical works are also featured. Together remarkable materials, which represent rare and unique forms of communication between man and nature in written and iconographical forms, play a central role in the performance of Buddhist and shamanistic rituals.
