Seeing the Beauty of Being
Seeing the Beauty of Being gives us a glimpse into the mandala of temples and expansive gardens which comprise the Odiyan Retreat Center in northern California. The book is filled with exquisite, full color pictures of the amazing variety of flowers, trees and birds which inhabit this thriving world of nature alongside the brightly hued prayer flags blowing in the breeze and copper covered prayer wheels, spinning prayers out into the universe. The accompanying text is by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, founder of Dharma Publishing and Odiyan, and encourages us to appreciate and soak up the wonders which nature has to offer.
