Portrait of a Dalai Lama: The Life and Times of the Great Thirteenth
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121509440 / 9788121509442; Reprint; Hardbound; New; New; 
The Dalai Lamas of Tibet are unique. A succession of fourteen have been guiding the spiritual life of the Tibetan people for nearly six centuries, and for three hundred years have held secular power as well. Revered as human embodiment of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion, they choose, out of their great desire to benefit others, to reincarnate life after life as the Dalai Lama. Thubten Gyatso, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama, was born to a peasant family in 1876. He was discovered, brought to Lhasa and enthroned at the age of three. Educated as a monk, he took over full power when he was eighteen and ruled until his death thirty-seven years later. His rule would prove to be more strong, more radical and more complete than that of any Dalai Lama since the Great Fifth. "His courage and energy were inexhaustible. He recoiled from nothing." Writes Charles Bell, who as Political Officer in the Himalayas first met him in 1910. They developed a firm and affectionate friendship, politically and personally, that would last for twenty-five years. Portrait of a Dalai Lama is packed full of history, stories, facts and figures, anecdotes and conversation, and is compelling reading. Printed Pages: 414 with half-tones. 006446

5 Charles Bell
Religion of Tibet
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8120810694 / 9788120810693; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume forms a sequel to the author`s Tibet: Past and Present and The people of Tibet. Like them, it is in part an historical account, in part a description of conditions in the earlier part of the twentieth century. Sir Charles Bell traces the history of the introduction to Buddhism, of the resistance and general decay of the older magic-worship of Ponism, and of the developments which have taken place within Tibetan Buddhism itself. The latter part of the book deals more particularly with the religious organization, with life in the great monasteries and with the religious customs and beliefs of the people. The illustrations are from the author`s own photographs taken in Tibet, Sikkim and Bhutan. 102530

The People of Tibet
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8120810686 / 9788120810686; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present book is an attempt to speak about the life of the Tibetan people in their own homes. The contents are leaved on the author`s first-hand knowledge of Tibetan life during a residence of nearly twenty years from conversation with his Tibetan acquaintances in their own language not through interpreters. In order to keep this volume within moderate limits he had to exclude from it many aspects of Tibetan life. Shut-off from the outer world by their immense mountain barriers Tibet still presented a virgin field of enquiry. There has been little change in the inner life of the people during the last thousand years. As the area is very large and the intercourse of one part with another is restricted, the manners and customs vary in different districts and provinces.Printed Pages: 411. 102527

The People of Tibet
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8175360852 / 9788175360853; Hardcover; New; New; 
The area of Tibet is large. Intercourse of one part with another is restricted, for the country is difficult and the means of travel are primitive. It follows that manners and customs vary in different districts and provinces. So a custom or interpretation need not be condemned as inaccurate because another sojouner has seen or heard it different elsewhere. The present book is an attempt to speak about the life of the people in their own homes, a miscellany of facts, and occassional ideas to clothe those facts, are all that this book can offer.

The Religion of Tibet
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121507987 / 9788121507981; Reprint; Hardbound; New; New; 
Man's destiny has been shaped by two dominant and hostile forces-war and love. Throughout the ages people have been asking, how to prevent wars? The answer has always evaded them. Yet the people of the hidden land of Tibet found it. This happened when Buddhism gained sway over Tibet. Centuries ago, before Buddhism reached Tibet, the Tibetans were followers of a nature worshipping religion called upon by them. Then they were warlike and aggressive. They carried their swords to Mongolia, China, Turkistan, India and Burma. Buddhism came, slowly there was a change of heart in people and war lost all its fascination. Sir Charles Bell's The Religion of Tibet treats this enchanting theme. It does it in two parts: How it came, and how it ruled. The author has consulted hitherto unknown Chinese and Tibetan sources, in addition to the known works on Tibet. His nineteen years residence in Tibet gave him an opportunity to consult the most authoritative people in Tibet regarding his subject. The result of all his infatiguable labour is this wonderful book. A book for all statesmen, philosophers and students of religion. Printed Pages: 252 with 69 halftones and 3 maps. 020866

Tibet Past and Present
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8120810678 / 9788120810679; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book deals with Tibetan history from earliest times, but especially with the aims and movements of the period witnessed by the author. Anecdotes, conversations with leading Tibetans, and quotations from poetry and proverbs illustrate the Tibetan point of view. Sir Charles Bell gives an inside view of the Tibetans; he served for eighteen years on the Indo-Tibetan frontier, spoke and wrote the Tibetan language, and was brought into close touch with all classes from the reigning Dalai Lama downwards.Recent developments in Tibet have attracted world wide attention and through this Indian edition, Sir Charles Bell`s classic study will perhaps be more eagerly read now than ever before.Printed Pages: 376. 102537
