The Theory And Practice of The Mandala: With Special Reference To The Modern Psychology Of The Unconscious

 
Giuseppe Tucci (Author)
Synopsis

This intriguing, thought-provoking study by one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject examines the basic doctrine behind the theory and practice of the Mandala in India and Tibet, by both Hindus and Buddhists. “As a whole,” as the author says in his Preface, ‘the spiritual background is the same: ... the yearning to find out a way from time to eternity to help the primeval consciousness... to recover its integrity” Individual chapters consider the doctrinal basis of the mandala, the mandala as a means of reintegration, the symbolism of the mandala and its various’ parts, the liturgy of the mandala, and the mandala in the human body. Of special interest to students of Eastern philosophy and art, this volume will also fascinate New Agers and anyone interested the symbols and psychology of Asian cultures.
