The Spirit of Asia
Journeys to the Sacred Places of the EastBook - 2000
Long-distance travel has opened the eyes of the West to the rich cultural heritage of Asian countries, and to the ability of their great belief systems to regenerate, refresh and renew. These sacred sites are seen as places of central importance, where heavenly and earthly energies are thought to intersect. Through the photographic odyssey undertaken by photographer Michael Freeman, this volume attempts to capture the power of the sacred places of Asia, both natural and man-made. The sites pictured in the book include hills, mountains, temple complexes and shrines.
