Oh, I so admire artistic people. Drawing, painting, sculpture, music, and calligraphy. Perhaps, especially calligraphy which I have always found difficult. When I found this wonderful book on learning to write the Tibetan alphabet, I thought I would give it a shot to see if I could somehow progress a bit further than my previous experiments with the brush.The discipline to make lettering look gorgeous is also somewhat meditative.
Or at least it is for me as I mess up countless piece of paper in my endeavour to finally succeed with the art of calligraphy. In this book, you learn not only the Tibetan letters but also mantras, seed syllables, and prayers. In fact, I just enjoyed reading it, hoping I could visualize my way to success.In this pure realm, surrounded by snow mountains,you are the source of complete happiness and benefitThe author, Sanje Elliott (thanks to Goodreader Itai for the video), is a wonderful artist and he brings a sense of calm to the book.
I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to enhance their calligraphy skills while also learning about another religion.Book Season = Year Round (other side of the brain)
