Publisher Comments:

A book to contemplate each day, Offerings is a deeply thoughtful collection of wisdom and knowledge from the masters of Tibetan Buddhism. Three-hundred sixty-five photographs by Olivier Föllmi present an evocative new image every day-each accompanied by a choice Buddhist quote. This spiritual advice, which is suited to people of any belief or religious tradition, is organized into 52 themes, including spirituality, ancestors, money, trust, and dependence. Danielle and Olivier Föllmi share a message of peace and hope in this new book. Through subjects that preoccupy us today, the masters of Tibetan Buddhist thought-including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kalu Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa, Shabkar, Jack Kornfield, and Arnaud Desjardins-convey to us their vision of existence. Their collective and individual vision celebrates humanity and encourages continual self-improvement. AUTHOR BIO: Danielle and Olivier Föllmi divide their time between the Alps and the Himalayas. Olivier's photographs of the Himalayas have been seen around the world and have won the prestigious World Press Photo Prize. Danielle is a doctor and intensive-care team member who has established nutrition and sanitation programs in many Tibetan schools. The Föllmis are the founders of HOPE, an association dedicated to education in the Himalayas. They are the authors of 14 books that have promoted the heritage of the Tibetan world, and are the official photographers of the Dalai Lama.

Patsy, August 31, 2009 (view all comments by Patsy)
I received this book as a gift from a very dear friend. I am definitely not a religious person, however I feel we all have a spiritual connection to others and our world. This book keeps me aware of that connection through its quotes and amazing photography. For those of us who want to foster spiritual health, compassion and tolerance this book is a must-have. I keep mine on the cabinet in my entry and turn the page every morning, concentrating on the words and focusing on the details of each photo.
I have given several copies of this book as a gift, which is how I believe one should receive it.
