The Second Buddha: Master of Time (HC)


Published on the occasion of the exhibition The Second Buddha: Master of Time, this book investigates the art, histories, and legends of Padmasambhava, the Lotus Born, celebrated by Tibetans as “The Second Buddha.” He is believed to have been instrumental in converting the land and people of Tibet to Buddhism. His legends of transformation explore triumph over obstacles, the power of human emotions, and the interconnectedness of past, present, and future—all of which transcend specific cultures and eras. The book includes new contributions by Benjamin Bogin, Lewis Doney, Daniel A. Hirshberg, and Elena Pakhoutova.
