Beyond the Visible

In order to enable those who wish to better understand the cultural context within which they travel, Global Nomad has created the collection of booklets ‘Beyond the Visible’. This collection is part of a project for the preservation and enhancement of the local culture. These booklets can be downloaded for free. Unfortunately, they are only available in French now, but we will translate them in English as soon as we can.

Introduction to Buddhism

This booklet aims to answer basic questions about Tibetan Buddhism: Who was the Buddha? What are the characteristics of Tibetan Buddhism? Is it a religion, a philosophy, a science of the mind or psychology? How to interpret the many symbols that we see in the monasteries? And many other subjects.

« As gold is heated, cut and rubbed
Consider my words very carefully
Do not accept out of respect for me.  »
(The Buddha)
