Tashi Mannox, "Sacred Scripts"

"With it's exquisite calligraphy and magnificent photographs of Buddhist imagery, Sacred Scripts presents the refined and varied artistry of Tibetan calligraphers and artists of the past. The work portrayed in this fine volume reflects the great heights of aesthetic achievement attained by master artisans who considered their accomplishments to be offerings to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha." ― His Holiness the Dalai Lama

                    

Calligraphy has held an honored place in the spiritual traditions of Tibet. Monks dedicate their lives to mastering the many subtleties of the art, often spending years transcribing sacred Buddhist manuscripts. The carefully composed lines and deliberate spatial awareness in each work of calligraphy within Sacred Scripts encourages reflection, mindfulness, and meditation.

Within these pages, sacred mantras, seed syllables, and Buddhist quotes are presented in authentic Tibetan scripts. Photos of Buddha statues from around the world complement the calligraphy and create an ethereal mood of serenity. Addressing the stresses of our modern world and the demise of spiritual languages, Sacred Scripts provides insight and inspiration for attaining inner peace and well-being.

Tashi Mannox committed to his monastic journey after graduating with a BA in Fine Art (Hons) at the age of twenty-two. He spent the next seventeen years as a monk. Tashi apprenticed under the direction of a master of Tibetan art, Sherab Palden Beru, and also studied under Lama Pema Lodrup, one of the last Tibetan masters of the rare Lantsha and Wartu Sanskrit forms. Since laying down his monastic robes in 2000, Tashi has built on his disciplined training and spiritual awareness to produce a collection of iconographic masterpieces that reveal powerful, sacred themes through the majestic images of Tibetan Buddhist iconography. Tashi is now recognized as one of the world’s foremost contemporary Tibetan calligraphy artists and exhibits internationally. To learn more, visit his website at www.tashimannox.com.
