About  .

  The Book

The first part of this book deals with historical matters especially the stereotyped notions of the king Lang Darma in Tibetan Buddhist historical works. It is followed by a comparative study of the cult of local deities (yul Iha).

The second part is mainly devoted to the Buddhist rites such as the ones instituted as state ceremonies by the Fifth Dalai Lama (1617 – 1682) as well as discussions about the mural painting in the Red Palace in the Potala that depicts the life of the Fifth Dalai Lama.

The third part deals with the Bon religion and history of its monastic institution as well as its followers such as the rebellious Thirty-nite Tribes of Hor.

Comment: Last week, just before Christmas, I received the very beautiful book The Great Himalayan Trail I ordered. It took much longer than the 10 days you mentioned in your mail, but I was expecting that so no problem at all. Really a beautiful book, inspiring me to come back to Nepal for the 9th time :) ! Best regards and pheri betaunla from Amsterdam,
