I am very honored to have Jeffrey Martin review my book on Buddhist Art News, a comprehensive site for reflections and information about sacred art around the world.

Buddhist Art News

Jeffrey Martin

The Female Buddha is an inspirational photo book of statues of female Buddhist deities, Buddhist nuns and female lay practitioners. The layout of the book features a single photo on one page, paired on its facing page with a quotation from female teachers, leaders and poets. The book is intended not to be read so much as imbibed, perhaps kept on a bedside stand for something to sleep and dream upon, or at an office desk for spiritual refreshment. Reading it cover to cover will take no more than 30 minutes, including the introductory essays.
