Each year--on the twenty-ninth day of the twelfth month of the Tibetan calendar--at Namgyal College in Dharamsala, a small procession of ritual masters, horn blowers, cymbal players, drummers, and a master of ceremonies walk under a canopy through the courtyard. (from the first line)
From the time Buddhism entered the mythical land of the snows, Tibetans have expressed their spiritual devotion and celebrated their culture with dance. This book--lavishly illustrated with color and rare historic photographs depicting the dances, costumes, and masks--is the first to explore the significance and symbolism of the sacred and secular ritual dances of Tibetan Buddhism.

Annotation:
This profusely illustrated study of Tibet's important cultural practice, the dance, focuses on both the entertaining folk dances (Achi Lhamo) and the sacred dances of the monks (Cham). She looks at their historical background and development, and at the elements of performance (costume, characters, steps, music, etc.), exploring the role of dance in Tibetan Buddhist culture and its prospects for survival since 1959, including the fact of its appeal among non-Tibetans worldwide.
