Buddhist Daily Ritual - The Nitya Puja In Kathmandu Valley Shrines.
with Foreword by Richard F. Gombrich and Illustrations by Mukti Singh Thapa
Orchid Press: Bangkok 2000.
Paperback, 387 Seiten, 23 Farbfotos, 11 Skizzen.
ISBN 974-8304-80-9

This book presents findings of research on a particular form of Buddhist ritual practiced by Sakyas and Vajracaryas, the inheritors of the monastic tradition and the highest Buddhist castes among the Newars, the indigenous people of Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. The author presents an authentic record of a unique form of Buddhist devotionalism and ritual: the everyday practices of the Newar Buddhists, the sole remnant of South Asia#s once extensive Mahayana community. Specifically, the esoteric liturgies performed each day at the main shrines of bahahs and bahis (as traditional Newar Buddhist viharas are known) are described, and the relationship of these rites to other elements of Newar Buddhist practice are analysed, in order to shed light on connections between the latter and Buddhist practices elsewhere. This book is a major contribution to the study of South Asian ritual and Buddhist devotionalism.

ISBN 974-8299-08-2


The author, a well known scholar, mountain climber and traveller, has compiled the fascinating life-stories of a number of well known and less known Nineteenth Century European travellers in the Himalaya and Central Asia. We meet the Hungarian grammarian and scholar Csoma de Koros, the Englishman Richmond Shakespear, "Knight Errant in Central Asia" and the famous botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker. Then there are Ashley Eden, whose not so successful forays into Bhutan and Sikkim are well known, as well as the educator William Delafield Arnold who worked mostly in Punjab. And finally we shall meet the Moravian missionaries in Lahoul and Ladakh.

Newar Art - Nepalese Art during the Malla Period
Hardcover, 166 Seiten, 6 Farb-Abb.. 111 s/w Abb, Format 30 x 21cm. . ISBN 974-8304-56-6

Visitors to the Kathmandu Valley and students of Nepalese culture have long been inmpressed by the distinctive and complex art and architecture, which is thought of as typically Nepalese. In most cases, however, it is the creation of the original inhabitants of the valley, the Newars. Newar craftsmen worked in Tibet, at Lhasa, and were also much influenced by Indian traditions. This survey is confined to the Malla Period ending with the Ghorka conquest of 1768, but, with the continuing survival of this remarkable society and culture, it is of direct relevance to present-day Nepal.
"It is an exceptionally illuminating, thought-provoking volume...indispensable to students of Newar civilization." (Acta Orientalia)
