It was based on the three Persian classics that were then taught in Mosque schools in Tibet: Gulistan, Boston, Pantanama. But a close study indicates that the work is not an imitation of Persian classics, neither in its style nor in its content., To be sure it is not a classic written by a highly-educated lama nor by an aristocrat who are the usual authors of the "Great Tradition".Kha-che Phallu'i rNam thar belongs to the "Little Tradition", and it precisely in this that its unique position in the History of Tibetan literature resides. It is one of the very few, if not the only, written document belonging to the little tradition. It opens to social scientists an enormous vista of the folk-mind: its strength and weakness; its WISDOM and follies; its suffering and yearning; its ideals and illusions; its social ethos and illusions; in short, its way of life and world view. Never before have we had so much commonsense with so little allusion to the classical literature.Printed Pages: 53.
