Sacred Dances of Bhutan
Written by Kezang Namgyal
“These sacred dances have often gushed forth from the minds of great yogis and yoginis whose sole wish is to liberate beings from their delusions. Indeed, the dances are a direct expression of these masters’ wisdom and compassion. And so, just as these dances are danced to invoke the sacredness of our being and of our world, I hope this book will also contribute to reminding us of the sacredness of humankind that is presently so lost and wandering.”
~ An excerpt from the Foreword by His Eminence Dzongsar Khyentse Norbu Rinpoche
