My Sacred Laos

My Sacred Laos
Hans Georg Berger

The ultimate photographic collection of Luang Prabang by German photographer Hans George Berger, that explores Theravada Buddhism in present-day Laos, offering an artistic perspective on the lives of the Buddhist sangha and laypersons of Luang Prabang. For over two decades, from 1993 to today, Berger, a photographic artist-documentarian, has created a unique photographic documentation of Lao Buddhist culture. This volume features a fine selection of photographs of palm-leaf manuscripts, Buddhist architecture and relics, the teaching and transmission of the dhamma, and the practice of vipassan meditation. These photographs are a rare vision of Luang Prabang through its community and the lens of the photographer. Some describe Berger s photographs as having the quality of a relic that captures the spiritual power of a religious action.
