Uthona Buddhist Arts Magazine

Uthona Buddhist Arts Magazine - Issue 24 coverThe new issue of Urthona is about to appear in Buddhist Centres and selected bookshops, with a new look. The issue is centred around Indian Art. In this issue Anjolie Ela Menon looks at India’s vibrant religious traditions and how they fit in with the notion of progress. By contrast Chote Ustad who teaches the art of Dhrupad singing is more concerned with preserving ancient tradition. Dhivan interviews distinguished translator Andrew Schelling. The cover image is a Bodhisattva from the Ajanta Caves which are discussed by Richard Lannoy. FWBO & TBMSG News editor Jayarava delves into the timeless beauty of Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time in a new column entitled Masterpiece.

Editor Ratnagarbha says "We hope that this issue will provide a glimpse of that still plenitude, and the vibrancy that is its foreground, within the strange richness of Indian art and literature".
