In its monumental effort to explain/interpret Buddhist-and-Hindu visual/conceptual symbols, images, objects, concepts and rites, this dictionary extends the definition of iconography to embrace numerous peripheral terms, which either have immediate relevance to iconographic principles or are hard to dispense with in visualizing the true import of different icons. This work is based on first hand observation of various temples in India, Nepal, and several Southeast Asian countries; besides a number of authentic sources: book illustrated and verbal.
