Title:
The Path of Light: ritual music of the Tibetan Bon
Authors:
Nicoletti, Martino
Abstract:
Conceived as an authentic multimedia work, composed by texts, images and an attached musical CD, this book provides an in-depth glance at the ritual music of one of Asia’s most ancient and least known spiritual traditions: Bön, the autochthonous religion of Tibet, which spread throughout the Land of the Snows prior to the introduction of Mahayana Buddhism in about the seventh century C.E. With its wealth of introductory texts and colour photos by the author, this original work – the first devoted to this specific theme – presents a rare selection of chants, music and mantras, most of which are connected with the religious path of Dzogchen, or Great Perfection. Among the tracks recorded live in 2006 at the Nepalese monastery of Triten Norbutse, the CD provides a rare collective performance of the chö, a meditative ritual of self-sacrifice, as found throughout bönpo tradition.
