5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By William Paul Pritchard on June 12, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is really beautiful. The pictures are stunning. It discusses most of the major Buddhist Temples here in South Korea and gives a little bit of information on each. Then gives some traditional recipies used by the Monks. From the jacket of the book:
Buddhism in its orginal form was a highly disciplined philosophic formula for personal liberation through renunciation of worldly desires, thus preventing rebirth in the endless cycle of existences, and bringing about calmness and release into Nirvana, or the ultimate reality. Temple food is a cultural method of teaching Buddhism. The most enjoyable way to meet another culture is through its food.
This book is an attempt to present a very important piece of Korea's rich cultural heritage. Through Lee's refined photographic eye, more than 400 color film and digital camera photographs beautifully illustrate the wealth of the delicate colors, textures and forms found in Korean Temple architecture, painting and temple foods.
