In this glorious follow-up to Buddhist Himalayas, Olivier and Danielle Föllmi have once more worked in vivid colour to document the beauty of the majestic Himalayan landscape, while delving yet deeper into the wisdom of the Tibetans.
Each of the previously unpublished 365 images presented here is mirrored by a meditation from one of the great masters and thinkers of Tibetan Buddhism, among them His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kalou Rinpoché, Chögyam Trungpa, Anagarika Govinda and Shabkar. These insights, divided into fifty-two themes to follow the rhythm of the year, encompass subjects that touch all humanity, from money, health and faith to trust and love. Their wisdom and power offer the perfect means for daily meditation, whatever your beliefs or religious traditions.
Olivier and Danielle Föllmi divide their time between the French Alps and the Himalayas. Olivier has been taking photographs of the Himalayas for twenty-five years, and his award-winning images have been seen all over the world. Danielle is a doctor and has set up health and nutrition programmes in Tibetan schools. Together they have written fourteen books, among them the acclaimed Buddhist Himalayas and Where Heaven and Mountains Meet, also published by Thames & Hudson.
