    This little book is a real gem. Beautifully written, lovely to look at on every page, and amazingly easy to follow. The very first day that I opened it, I was able to sit down and write the Tibetan alphabet following these instructions. Very clear, simple, and direct. Well grounded in and respectful of the TIbetan spiritual tradition, with gentle suggestions for approaching calligraphy as meditative practice in a culturally appropriate way. The author has made every effort to be generous and kind to the beginner, and this book is well worth trying if you are interested in learning to write the traditional “uchen” letters. You will need a straight-edged nib pen (2.5 mm) and calligraphic grid paper (8 to the inch) to make best use of these instructions.

    This review is from: Tibetan Calligraphy: How to Write the Alphabet and More (Kindle Edition)

    I agree with other commentators that this is an excellent book, easy to follow and clearly laid out. As a lefty, however, I found I couldn’t reproduce even the basic pen strokes. After a little experimenting, I decided to go out on a limb and just use my right hand and follow the directions exactly. It’s working, but what a learning curve!

    And one tiny critique: I didn’t see (in the Kindle edition) any directions for the yatak subjoined character. I figured it out with some trial and error, so a minor quibble.
