Giuseppe Tucci has drawn on his wide knowledge of the Tibetan language and literature, and on the many expeditions he has made to Western and Central Tibet, to produce a work which is both authoritative and comprehensive. After describing the diffusion of Buddhism in Tibet, Professor Tucci discusses the general characteristics of Lamaism and goes on to write about monastery life, religious festivals and the Bon religion. Much of the material, such as the chapter on the teaching of the various Buddhist schools, and part of that on folk religion, represents the results of previously unpublished research.Printed Pages: 340.
